EGOT winner John Legend teams with rising singer-songwriter Faouzia for the heart-tugging new song, “Minefields.”
A powerful duet that speaks of a romance gone awry, the piano-driven ballad – co-written by Faouzia – also features a who’s who of songwriters and instrumentalists including Charlie Puth, Sam Martin, Ali Tamposi, and J Kash.
“Now this might be a mistake that I’m calling you this late / But these dreams I have of you ain’t real enough / Started bringing up the past, how the things you love don’t last / Even though this isn’t fair for both of us,” the duo sing backed by a Puth-played piano.
Speaking on the emotional cut, Faouzia said:
“I’d love for listeners to get what they need from my voice. If they feel healed or happy, that would be amazing. I hope it’s a safe place for them. I’m just a normal girl trying to be the best version of myself and help others do the same. I care a lot.”
