TOBi: Holiday

By Kerry Doole

TOBi - Holiday (Sony Music Entertainment Canada): The rising R&B star from Brampton, ON, is back with a new single. Holiday is featured as a bonus track on STILL + , the deluxe version of his debut studio album that was released on April 30.


The cut showcases plaintive vocals that flirt with falsetto and that are neatly complemented by a production featuring muted trumpet, sparse beats, and strings. A short (2.08) but sweet tune.

Holiday was produced by Grammy Award winner !llmind & Mario Luciano. 

TOBi recently made a splash with another track, 24 Toronto Remix, one featuring a star-studded cast list, including Haviah Mighty, Jazz Cartier, SHAD and Ejji Smith. It was selected for a 2020 Music Video Production (MVP) Project grant earlier this year, and a compelling clip resulted.

2019 was a breakthrough year for the 26-year-old, with highlights including having his single City Blues premiered on Zane Lowe, performing to a sold-out crowd in his hometown of Toronto, being featured on The Game’s Born 2 Rap, and with Party Pupils and Big Gigantic. He performed an original song, Beige, on the international Colors platform, his single Ride was featured in the 2019 season of HBO’s Ballers, and he counts Snoop as a fan.
