Canadian rapper/songwriter/producer Powfu went viral with a style of melancholic, lo-fi songcraft that was sad, nostalgic, and sweet in equal parts. His song "Death Bed" sampled British singer Beabadoobee's lo-fi acoustic tune "Coffee" and met with unexpectedly massive success, being streamed hundreds of millions of times and reaching number 27 on the Billboard charts.
Powfu was born Isaiah Faber in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1999. He began sharing his songs online as early as 2018, tending toward lo-fi hip-hop beats and sad, piano-driven instrumentals as the backdrop for his singing and rapping about relationships, breakups, emotional struggles, and bittersweet memories. These tracks were often released as singles, and sometimes Powfu collected several songs at once in a series of EPs titled Some Boring, Love Stories. It was his song "Death Bed," released in January of 2020 that pushed his rising fame into full bloom, with its video streamed millions of times in a matter of months. The song grew exponentially when it was released as a commercial single with an upgraded video, and Powfu signed on with Columbia Records. ~ Fred Thomas
