Last month, Brent Faiyaz surprised us with his Tyler, the Creator and DJ Dahi collaboration, “Gravity.” On the track, he was talking about taking your main girl with as you achieve success to stay grounded. He’s continuing to praise women with his new single “Show U Off” just in time for Women’s History Month.
“Show U Off” is about celebrating the important women in our lives. Over a smooth, atmospheric groove, Brent lays out some of the trials and tribulations that women go through, from single motherhood and dealing with no-good men.

Along with the new track, Faiyaz also shared a video for "Show U Off." The clip showcases different women in candid moments.

The clip ends with Brent and some of the women in his family gathered together in celebration.
Brent Faiyaz has been busy lately. Beyond the two tracks mentioned, he also dropped a surprise video for “Circles” and a three-song EP, DO NOT LISTEN.

We think all of this hustle might mean his first full length is just around the corner.
