Continuing a rapid rise, 17-year-old singer, songwriter, and R&B viral sensation Breez Kennedy shares a new single + video entitled “Need U Tonite” featuring Def Jam labelmate Genia, out now via Standard Records/Def Jam Recordings.
On the track, soulful acoustic guitar wraps around a smooth beat as Breez’s vocals mesmerize. Opening up straight from the heart, he confidently carries the chantable chorus, “Need you by my side, you’re my favorite vibe.”Genia slides through with her own perspective on an equally impactful verse punctuated by towering high register. The chemistry between these two buzzing talents instantly sizzles.
He ignited this hot streak with the recent favorite “Life My Ex.” Beyond plugs from the likes of Global Grind and more, UPROXX hailed it among “All The Best New R&B Music From This Week” and praised, “17-year-old singer Breezy Kennedy is letting off the gas anytime soon.” ATTACK THE CULTURE raved, “Breez Kennedy is representing for the culture,” and promised, “It’s all types of alive and alert vibes. Tap in.”
“Like My Ex” arrived as the follow-up to his rapidly rising debut single “Love Crazy (Blowing Up Your Phone).”Global Grind hailed it “as mesmerizing as it is unabashedly heartfelt,” and proclaimed, “he’s positioned himself to make sure his come-up is a continual one.”
He initially teased the track on TikTok with a series of viral posts. Prior to an official release, he caught the attention of not only Lil Baby (who vibed to just a clip on Instagram!), but also Swae Lee, Rod Wave, Toosii, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and more. This clip has already posted up 2 million views and counting.
Right from the jump, he affirmed himself as a self-sufficient phenomenon by writing, recording, and producing the bulk of his music by himself. He has quietly buzzed out of St. Petersburg, FL with a signature style, balancing Bryson Tiller’s adventurousness with pop magnetism a la Justin Bieber.
