New self-written, produced, and mixed music from Dubai’s #1 urban streaming artist.
Today, the Dubai-based artist sobhhï has released “abu / dhabi”, a song that explores a relationship with a love interest living in another prominent city in the UAE. Falling in the sweet-spot of R&B and trap, with an underlying Arabic element, sobhhï seductively serenades a scorpio girl who’s in the throes of a messy break-up. Contrasting himself to her past lover, sobhhï makes it clear that only he can give her the life she’s looking for (“top floor, it’s not new to you”).
abu / dhabi is the first in a series of songs about a toxic relationship with a scorpio girl. At the time I met her, she was working things out with her boyfriend. However, my intro into her life cut that process off immediately and comparisons between us were common (eg. “got a few inches on you”). I would frequently take trips to Abu Dhabi to meet her, nights it would be raining, or she would come to me. At the end of the song, you can hear her voice from a voicemail she left me one of those nights.
