Phabo Announces New EP ‘Before I Let Her Go,’ Shares New Song ‘Achy’


Rising R&B act Phabo has announced his next project, Before I Let Her Go. The forthcoming EP will be released on July 15. 

Before I Let Her Go will include the title track co-produced by Troy Taylor and Francesco Carlesi. The upcoming EP will also feature his freshly-released single, “Achy,” produced by Larce Blake, Sonic Major and Th3ory. 

The song is infectious. One will find themselves singing the hook more than prescribed. The screwed-and-chopped slow jam involves the left side of Phabo’s hurting from a romantic heartache following his lover’s break with the past.

Now that he sees the relationship as a dead-end, Phabo is left to pick up the pieces, woefully asking if this person can see the pain they’ve caused.

“Time we spent would soon become a burden / Now, I see you out / Everywhere I wanna be / Hearing of you, everywhere I go,” he sings. 

Phabo shared a visualizer for “Achy,” co-directed by Jon Rabon and Whest Cornell, which can be viewed below.

Phabo released his debut album Soulquarius on July 16. The full-length, released on Soulection, included guest appearances from Alex Vaughn, Destin Conrad, Mntra and Rexx Life Raj. It would later be celebrated at year-end, making Rated R&B’s coveted best R&B albums list

Of Soulquarius, Rated R&B’s Danielle Brissett wrote in the blurb, “Phabo unleashes refreshing energy in the male R&B sector that hasn’t exactly been exhibited since the early 2000s, contributing to a significant aspect of his appeal.” She added, “By avoiding falling into the cookie cutter domain, Soulquarius is a much-needed alternative in the R&B field.” 

Since then, Phabo has joined Duckwrth and Eric Bellinger on their different projects. He co-wrote two songs on Kehlani’s recent album Blue Water Road, including the Blxst-assisted “Any Given Sunday” and “Tangerine.” 

Phabo recently spent time at Spotify’s House of Are & Be event in New Orleans, Louisiana, during Essence Festival of Culture weekend. Other R&B performers in the building included SiR, Jade Novah, Kenyon Dixon and more.
