Bazzi Premieres New Music Video for “Mine”
- Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Bazzi dropped a new music video for "Mine". The song was preceded by his sixth single “Why" last October. It was written by Bazzi and co-produced by Bazzi and Rice N Peas. The track reached over 2 million downloads on Spotify in less than two months.
Both of “Mine” and “Why" are expected to appear on his forthcoming debut mixtape, which is due this year.
Recently Bazzi was also announced on the lineup for this year's Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival.
About the song, Bazzi said;
"It was a really hot summer day. I was hanging with some friends and some girls by the pool. We were just having a few drinks and smoking, nothing crazy. I went inside to grab a drink and that melody just hit me in the head. I instantly knew what I wanted the entire song to look like. I started voice noting. I have a really early voice note of what the song was like. But you can tell exactly what it molded into from that. I went to the studio literally the next day and the song was done. I did like one edit a few weeks after, changing the chords and the hook, but for the most part it was finished because that energy and that vibe I felt that day was so specific, it was really easy to translate it into a track."
"The purpose of “Mine” is that I wanted people to feel wanted, I wanted to make people feel special. The song was a lot about someone I cared about, but also about making people feel special and making my fans feel special. It’s about spreading something light in a world where everyone’s trying to be the coolest kid on the block, rather than talking about ice or how much money I have. Instead I’ll talk about something real and something genuine, and a feeling that people need to feel to live a happy honest life."
