JAM OF THE WEEK: Zaia – Blue

Hailing from Atlanta, buzz-worthy artist Zaia only released his debut EP one year ago.  Bringing a fresh sound to the Atlanta scene, Zaia has been turning heads by blending smooth R&B elements with Hip Hop and 70’s Funk.  While Zaia has yet to become a household name, tastemakers far and wide have been taken notice.  Having racked up millions of streams across platforms, Zaia has found praise from the likes of The SourceMajestic CasualHillydillyIndie Shuffle and Earmilk while also landing in coveted playlists like Spotify’s Mellow Bars.With a sound likened to Childish Gambino and Kid Cudi with a flavor all his own Zaia has proven himself as an artist to watch over the last year or so.  Most recently he has released his new single, “Blue”, and it is a refreshing, jam-worthy tune that is sure to hit you in the feels.  With retro inspired synths, ripping electric guitar solos, and atmospheric percussive elements setting the tone, Zaia floats on the track with simplistic lyrics and earworm melodies.  The genre bending release sees Zaia bringing a fresh sound that could work on nearly every radio satiation – from Alternative to Hip Hop – as he crafts a memorable and accessible tune with mass appeal.

From slick bars to smooth vocal melodies, Zaia brings beautiful dynamics to his latest single and once again proves himself as an artist on the cutting edge and in a lane all his own.  Do yourself a favor and let this one rock.
