When a someone you love pushes you away, good friends are there to pick up the pieces. Multi-national singer-songwriter Wafia has been friends with Whethan and Louis The Child for years. She famously sang on the latter’s “Better Not” in 2018, and today (Sept. 5), the whole crew comes together on a fresh pop tune for Wafia’s catalog called “Hurts.”
“It’s a homie track,” Whethan is quoted in a press release. “It was an opportunity to be able to come together with friends and make music. Both Wafia and Louis The Child are like family, so this one means a lot to me.”
“Hurts” puts Wafia’s sweetheart vocals over a thumping bass beat, shimmering R&B textures and a woobly hook. She’s about to hit the road on a few fall dates across the United States with support from Electric Guest.
