Pheelz Bares His Soul: KAMAKAZE Turns Afrobeats Inside Out

Written during a period of overwhelming negativity, Kamakaze reflects Pheelz’s personal battles with stress and concern for his loved ones.

This context adds depth to the song’s introspective lyrics, which stand in stark contrast to his typically upbeat productions.

The familiar afrobeats rhythm and warm piano melody serve as a backdrop for Pheelz’s smooth vocals, creating an infectious yet haunting atmosphere.

“On a daily I am looking for peace of mind,” he sings, setting a tone of vulnerability that permeates the track.

The chorus, with its repetitive “Fagbo” (Yoruba for marijuana) and the phrase “Kamakaze on a kentro level,” hints at coping mechanisms.

These elements, combined with the song’s overall structure, retain an anthemic quality while exploring darker themes.

Pheelz doesn’t shy away from difficult topics, openly discussing anxiety and self-doubt.

He even questions if his astrological sign plays a role in his mental state, adding a personal touch that resonates with listeners.

Kamakaze represents a mature evolution in Pheelz’s artistry. It demonstrates his ability to tackle serious subjects while maintaining his knack for crafting engaging tunes.

The song offers a compelling glimpse into Pheelz’s growth as an artist, balancing his signature sound with newfound emotional depth.

This track may surprise long-time fans, but it solidifies Pheelz’s position as a versatile artist unafraid to push boundaries.

With Kamakaze, he creates relatable music for all occasions, from moments of introspection to those requiring an energetic boost.

It marks an intriguing new chapter in his musical journey, proving Pheelz can navigate both lighthearted and more serious terrains with equal skill.
