Transcending genres of pop, R&B and soul, alluring songstress SAFIA MAFIA is un unstoppable force, an empowering figure of reassurance and authenticity. Teeming with aural class and grace, she continues to show us her world of vibrant kaleidoscopic soundscapes with each new release - visual aesthetics always on point. The LA-based artist has now partnered up with Guapdad 4000 for her newest single, "Weed & Wine."
A smooth R&B soul-hop fusion, "Weed & Wine" reflects the dichotomy of day and night, of the mind and of the heart. ""Weed & Wine" is the 'morning after' account of a night spent with your 'it’s complicated'," Safia remarks. "Sometimes we do things that go against our better judgment for moments of temporary happiness, especially in relationships. I wanted to talk about those moments in a lighthearted and fun way."
With the jazz-tinged downtempo and the modulated reverbs, Safia's vocals is the shining star of the track, exuding a sensual eclecticism signature to her sound. The striking croons and drawls alongside the refined lyricism, is a welcoming warmth that engulfs us into a soothing ambiance akin to the aftermath of smoking weed. Juxtaposing the gentle vocals, Guapdad 4000 brings a more lively tone to his verses, helping to balance the track in all the right places. "Working with Guap was one of the most fun sessions I’ve ever had," Safia shares. "He has great energy, and he’s not only hilarious, he’s super talented. His personality really meshed with the colour of the song, so I was super grateful to have him on the record.”
