Global pop star Faouzia returns with a new stunning single “Hero” featured along with an official music video
The new single features a brilliant introduction to her newly elevated pop sound, “Hero” brings bright textures and kinetic rhythms to an urgent message of self-reliance. The song came to life last December as Faouzia, a computer-engineering major, studied for her final exams. She completed a rough version in her basement studio and later worked with producer Alex Koste to shape the shimmering sonic atmosphere surrounding her fearlessly honest lyrics.
Faouzia says, “I wrote ‘Hero’ late one night while taking a break from studying for my exams,” Faouzia shared. “Thematically, the song discusses having fair and reasonable expectations from the love you give and receive in a relationship or a friendship. It’s a two-way street and any healthy relationship needs both sides to be supportive of each other.”
In the new single, the rising pop star invites you to ‘choose your hero’ in the Ariel Michelle (Loren Gray, FLETCHER)-directed video showing Faouzia battling a sinister series of video game villains.
Her new single “Hero” follows last year’s breakthrough hit single, “Minefields (Feat. John Legend). The remarkable track saw impressive success around the world, racking up over 100 million global streams and giving Faouzia her first Top 10 entry on the US iTunes charts while reaching #1 on the French pop charts, #2 on the all genre charts and #2 on the French airplay charts.
With over 300 million global streams, over 1.5 million YouTube subscribers, 1.9 million Instagram followers and more than 2.5 million Tik Tok followers worldwide, she has cemented herself as a surefire artist to watch.
