GASHI has finally unleashed his much-anticipated self-titled debut album. The new project yields his latest single “Safety” which features frequent collaborator DJ Snake, going on to peak as the #1 most added song globally on Spotify in 38 countries.
The 29-year old Brooklyn-raised artist merges elements of R&B with pop, and hip-hop with dance to create his latest project with features from top artists such as DJ Snake and French Montana. The 16-track album is led by multiple successful singles, including “My Year” featuring G-Eazy and “Disrespectful” which have over 150 million streams on Spotify alone.
Born in Libya to ethnic Albanian parents, GASHI spent a good portion of his life as a refugee, migrating from country to country. Eventually finding his home in New York, his influences are deeply rooted in hip-hop while drawing inspiration from sounds of all sorts. Having overcome poverty and even homelessness at one point, he proves anything can happen if you work hard and follow your dreams. Currently, he inked a deal with Roc Nation management as well RCA Records, whom he released the album with.
GASHI is currently getting ready for his first Europe tour which beings on November 30th with stops in London, Paris, Amsterdam, and Berlin. Listen to the album above!
