Inspired by the tempestuous intricacies of adolescent love, Foster taps a universal flow about the sweet, early days of romance that inform a young life.

Nashville newcomer Foster continues to prove why he is an artist to watch with melodic lo-fi hip-hop single "as long as i have you." Inspired by the tempestuous intricacies of adolescent love, Foster taps a universal flow about the sweet, early days of romance that inform a young life.

This song was released digitally via Relentless Records (UK) and Columbia Records, and the lyric video builds a colorful story around that moment of sitting next to your sweetheart with nothing but time to explore the unknown.

"as long as i have you" is the reminiscence of a fictional story, there were times in which I was so emotionally involved it felt as if it were my current reality. Playing with the idea of being in a teenage relationship was very nostalgic for me, not because I was in one, but because I had always wanted to be. — Foster

This lovable track follows up on the recent collaboration with Sarcastic Sounds & Sody which has gone on to become a massive success for this young artist who started writing and recording all his own songs around 8 years ago, connecting with fans early on by posting his new mixes on SoundCloud. His SoundCloud has now accumulated over 2 million streams, with significant streams on Spotify, Apple and other DSPs since releasing his collaboration with Sody.

Foster takes inspiration from a number of different artists ranging from Mac Miller, John Mayer, to The Beatles. You will hear echoes of these and other artists in his music, but the story he is telling is all his own.

We don’t know where we goin’
But I don’t care as long as I have you
And we stay the way we are
