Pop singer-songwriter Bazzi is making the Billboard Hot 100 chart his with the breakthrough single "Mine." The melodic tracks nears the top 10 this week at No. 12.
Andrew Bazzi, who records solely under his last name, has been hard at work at a music career since 2012. He started posting song covers on YouTube and eventually found a wider audience a few years later on the now defunct app Vine. Bazzi released a few buzz tracks throughout 2016 and 2017, including "Mine" last October via Atlantic Records. In January, the Internet and social media continued to help Bazzi's rise when "Mine" became a meme through a heart-filled Snapchat filter that also permeated Instagram. After going viral, Bazzi debuted in the lower part of the Billboard Hot 100 chart shortly after.
If the heart-eyes emoji could be epitomized in a song, "Mine" would be it.
Bazzi wrote "Mine" himself and co-produced it with G-Eazy collaborators Rice 'N Peas. Clocking in at a little over 2 minutes, it's a short and sweet offering where Bazzi showers his girl with the slickest lines. "You so f**kin' precious when you smile," he sings atop the wondrous production and trap-lite beats. If the heart-eyes emoji could be epitomized in a song, "Mine" would be it. Bazzi soars on this lofty R&B daydream. The official music video is a psychedelic delight that has crossed over 47 million views on YouTube as of press time.
On the recent Billboard Hot 100 chart, "Mine" sits at No. 12 after peaking at No. 11 last week. With the release of Bazzi's debut album, Cosmic, on Friday, expect the reaches of the top 10 to be his very soon. He is currently the opening act for Camila Cabello's Never Be the Same Tour.
