POWFU Lauds Filipino Covers Of Viral TikTok Song "Death Bed"
Admit it or not, TikTok has taken over our quarantine lives - and up-and-coming singer and rapper powfu (real name: Isaiah Faber) is one of the many artists to blame. His breakthrough hit "death bed", which sampled London-based Filipino musician beabadoobee's "coffee", is among the several songs that the social media video-sharing app made beyond popular these days.
Of course, the rest of the social media world caught up with the viral track which has now spawned incredible covers from artists around the globe. In the Philippines, for example, the track has been translated to Tagalog which the Canadian hitmaker finds really impressive. "I always think it’s so amazing how people can speak more than one language. I think that’s so cool," he said in an interview with VJ Dani and other local media outfits. "Probably just like how they could translate and how they rapped it on their own language."
He also talked a bit about his recently released EP. "It’s basically just a mix of songs that have variations of styles that I’ve done in the past. Most of them are about different relationships kinda thing and events that happen in a relationship. And I called it poems of the past because I like to talk about memories a lot," the emerging musician shared.
While he dreams of someday making an acoustic, romantic song with or for Taylor Swift, the lo-fi hip-hop artist promised to make more music as long as people like it. Give poems of the past your undivided attention below:
