Genesis Owusu has been firing the radio charts in Australia while also snatching an ARIA Award nomination this year. He’s now setting his sights further abroad with his official US release of “Don’t Need You Now.” If you’ve been sleeping on Owusu, then today is the day that you’ll wake up and indulge in his irreplaceable grooviness. Described as “An anthem of independence, a call to action to shed the grip of toxic places, spaces and faces,” by Owusu, the track is an R&B hybrid of funk, pop, and self-empowering swagger:

Owusu broke into the scene with his highly-acclaimed debut EP CARDRIVE back in 2017. Since then he has collaborated with many musicians including Anderson Paak’s Free Nationals and Kirin J. Callinana. He’s currently working on his upcoming debut album, which he’ll be sharing more details soon.
