Over the past few months, Maryland rapper Foggieraw has become a vertical video sensation thanks to his self-recorded music videos for songs like “Persona,” “TGI Fridays” featuring Ari Lennox, and “Psalm 62,” which highlight his conversation flow with expertly staged vignettes following the ultra-charming recording artist on his adventures in life and love. However, many of these songs had yet to receive official releases, either due to sample clearance issues or other behind-the-scenes delays.
That changes today, as not just one but two of her fan-favorite singles have been officially released on DSPs: “Ms. Johnson”, which samples Musiq Soulchild’s 2007 single “teachme” and the “Psalm 62”. aforementioned, which samples Alicia Keys’ notorious hit, “You Don’t Know My Name.” In March, Foggie implored his fans to help him release the song, writing, “Okay guys I tried everything in my power to get this out…maybe you could ask Miss Alicia in my name lol.”
Well, it apparently worked; this week, Foggie posted a follow-up tweet with a video of himself performing a snippet of the song on piano alongside the New York singer herself to announce the single’s release.
With two of his massive song overstocks in the world, it’s only a matter of time before Foggieraw goes from social media favorite to bona fide superstar. Listen to “Psalm 62” above and “Ms. Johnson” below.
