Fùnsho presents a refreshing new sound and style in his latest single “Situation.” The Chef Belin produced song is an infectious blend of hip-hop and R&B. Fùnsho’s delivery, vocals and fun, relatable lyrics blended with the laid back energy of the instrumental gives a modern flavor to a classic hip hop/R&B vibe.
DC area artist Fùnsho (formerly known as Seph Ade) is the personification of the age-old cliché that states, “Art imitates life.” Although there is nothing cliché about his music, the singer/songwriter has an incredible knack for synthesizing the passion, joys, anxieties, and emotions of his tumultuous relationships into relatable and honest R&B tunes. Influenced by luminaries like Lauryn Hill, D’angelo and John Legend, Fùnsho explores territory oft forgotten by peers in his generation while pushing past the sonic boundaries of the R&B genre.
Building on the success of his solo acoustic debut album, “Love Acoustically” and his well received covers on Youtube, Fùnsho released his second album “S.H.E. (Sounds Have Emotions) on September 22nd. “S.H.E.”, which takes a noticeably different, producer driven approach, is an eclectic, digitally progressive body of work that draws distinct influences from hip-hop, soul and dance music.
