Hear Osquello’s mellow, jazzy “Lovers Fool”

From the North London artist’s debut album, due out in June.

May 29, 2020

North London-based rapper, singer, and producer Osquello has built up an impressive resume over the past six years, bringing a jazz-inflected hip-hop production to collaborations with Clairo, Declan McKenna, and BROCKHAMPTON. Now, finally, he's preparing to release his self-produced debut album, OSQSTOCK, on June 27. The album's third single "Lovers Fool" — premiering above with a video directed by Ella Witt — is a smoothed out and almost ambient track, featuring rangey saxophone from Will Cox.

In an email to The FADER, Osquello wrote that the song explores romance from different perspectives. "At the end of the day I'm still a fool for the one I love no matter how much I recognize what may not be and what couldve been," he said.
