Rising Dutch-Iraqi vocalist and songwriter Wafia has unveiled her brand new single 83 Days. This song was produced by Toro (Tory Lanez, Kehlani, Ty Dolla $ign) and co-written with Ben Abraham, and is the first track from a new EP set for release on Future Classic this summer. Stream it below!

Such a smooth, yearning R&B track. She is incredible and the song is perfect to my ears! Speaking about the single Wafia says,
This song comes after someone I love wouldn’t stay. I developed an obsession with noting down the ways their absence was so loud and present. How intangible they had become. How intangible the memories I was left with are. How I reminisce on only the highest points of the situation that I know were so bad for me. How something that ceased to exist anymore could be felt constantly.

83 Days follows last year’s collaborative EP with Future Classic labelmate Ta-ku, (m)edian, and the duo’s subsequent critically acclaimed world tour. 

Wafia, born in the Netherlands and now based in Australia, is 23-year-old Wafia Al-Rikabi. She rose to prominence after posting a Thrupence-produced cover of Mario’s “Let Me Love You” online. The release of Wafia’s debut EP XXIX, which featured the viral hit “Heartburn,” followed in 2015.
