Contemporary R&B artist, Brent Faiyaz, is bringing his F*ck The World It’s A Wasteland Tour to the Cosmopolitan for one night only on September 3.

And as heard on both his solo albums and especially his work with the trio Sonder, he’s also drawn to the type of lush and percussive beats that Timbaland pioneered. But whether he’s singing the hook on GoldLink’s Grammy-nominated “Crew” or stretching out across the 10 tracks of his boldly inventive 2020 album F*ck the World, Faiyaz is also clearly drawn to the woozy, vibey and sometimes introverted feel of auteurs like the Weeknd, Frank Ocean and Miguel.
