Faouzia Goes for New Summer Hit “Hero”
20-year-old Moroccan-Canadian acclaimed singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Faouzia shares latest single “Hero“
The new single “Heor” 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.
She declares: “I wrote ‘Hero’ late one night while taking a break from studying for my exams. 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.”
Her 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. Faouzia and the 12x GRAMMY® Award-winning Legend celebrated “Minefields” with a series of high profile TV performances, including show-stopping visits to NBC’s TODAY and the Kelly Clarkson Show.
Faouzia released her first independent single at the age of 15 and swiftly earned major radio play and over 1 million worldwide streams. 2018 saw her drawing international attention with “Battle,” found on David Guetta’s chart-topping smash album, 7. Her own releases drew further critical and popular acclaim, with 2019’s moody and cinematic “Tears of Gold.”
