Three million streams in three days.
That is the reality for singer-songwriter keshi, whose new track ‘beside you’ has become his most significant release to date. The Houston artist has been on the rise for quite some time, and these stats for his latest release prove just that. After completing his EP trilogy with always back in October, keshi fans, aka Kults, have been standing by. Patiently waiting for the release of his first full-length album, which keshi is actively working on. ‘beside you’ is a fan-appreciation gift and signifies the start of a new era for keshi, and believe us when we say that 2021 is the year of keshi.

Although keshi has become a master at blending R&B, hip-hop, and pop, ‘beside you’ is one of the more pop-sounding songs. Produced by Madeon, ‘beside you’ has all the elements we love from a keshi song. From his honey-tones turning to a sweet falsetto to the guitar mixed with pop beats, it’s hard to not (again) become hypnotized by yet another of keshi’s tracks. We’re willing to bet that it will become a song of the summer.
Want More keshi?
If you’re finding yourself wanting to get into keshi’s music, the EP trilogy we mentioned is the perfect place to start. skeletons, bandaids, and always, are meant to be an introduction to who keshi is. Each EP highlights different aspects of keshi, from rough patches in relationships, growing up, work exhaustion, and more. His ability to turn these topics into beautiful sounding songs is just a part of what makes keshi stand out in the industry. Even artists such as RM from BTS, Hongjoong from ATEEZ, and most recently, Jake from ENHYPEN have talked about putting keshi on their playlists. With him gaining more recognition from artists and his streams increasing by the minute, keshi is the one to watch, and ‘beside you’ is just the beginning.
