Afrobeats artist Anpheous is back with his second full-length album ‘Billet-Doux [An Illusion]‘, marking a momentous new step in his career. This 14 track project was made after his first love and ex came back to him wanting to get back together, and represents his thoughts and emotions as he cycles between sensuality, admiration and devotion to what he calls his ‘ultimate soulmate’.

Other tracks like ‘Gangsta Lover’ and ‘Searching No More’ stand out for impressive features from the likes of Don Shabba, Jac45 and Honmma. Contributions from these artists as well as Majorr Key, Wlas & BiP-T, Kanaala and Yungboy were sent to Anpheous who recorded, mixed and mastered all of the tracks in his home studio. It’s another strong project from Anpheous sure to raise the attention of the biggest Afrobeat fans. If you’re looking for your next enigmatic, romantic and entrancing listen, ‘Billet-Doux [An Illusion]’ is the perfect album for you.
Anpheous’ ‘Billet-Doux [An Illusion]‘ is a remarkable opus that showcases the artist’s lyrical acumen and exceptional production. The album offers a range of sounds, from steady Afrobeat rhythms to lively Amapiano tracks, accompanied by immersive soundscapes. Anpheous‘ poetic lyricism, which evokes deep emotions, coupled with impressive collaborations, makes this album a noteworthy achievement.
Debuting in 2020, Anpheous is a vibrant emerging artist based in China, standing out for his addictive Afrobeats sound and enchantingly romantic lyricism. It was in his hometown of Monrovia, Liberia that he began performing at talent shows, school jams, street rap battles and even several wedding ceremonies, building his presence as a performing artist. 2016 was the year that he graduated and released his first professional studio recorded track ‘I Miss U’, a promising start that had to be put on pause due to funding issues.
December 2020 saw him next release the track ‘Cinderella’, raising attention as one of the most promising artists in Liberia. His debut album ‘Love Addiction‘ came out the following March and was followed by a string of singles and EPs. His most recent milestone was the 26K views he had on his first music video ‘Riding Dirty ft.Rima‘. With nothing short of pure intentions, it’s no wonder that his name was created in the image of Greek poet and musician Orpheus, who would charm people with his words: “Love is the most driving force behind my career as an artist, and it’s my wish to continue to express and demonstrate love to my fellow man through music”. He’s looking to become one of the top superstars in the world and is grateful for all the support he has collected over the years. Anpheous is the next unstoppable force in the Afrobeats scene, one to watch for sure!
