Biography of FAHREE feat. Ilkin Dovlatov

Fakhri Ismayilov, professionally known as Fahree (stylized in all caps), is an Azerbaijani singer and songwriter. Born on April 10, 1995, he is set to represent Azerbaijan in the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 with his song "Özünlə apar".

Fahree, born in 1995 in Baku, hails from an artistic lineage, with his father a jazz drummer and his grandfather an actor. Despite earning both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in law, Fahree decided to pursue his childhood passion for music, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, dedicating himself fully to his musical aspirations.

In 2022, Fahree marked his musical debut with the release of his single "Dance" .  Building on this momentum, he followed up with two more singles.

In late October 2023, İctimai Television (İTV) unveiled Fahree as one of sixteen shortlisted candidates for Azerbaijan's 2024 Eurovision Song Contest selection. The following week, he advanced to the final stage alongside five other contenders. On March 7, 2024, he was announced as the chosen representative. Joining him onstage will be Ilkin Dovlatov, another finalist from the selection, as they perform the song "Özünlə apar."
