One of Holland’s brightest new stars Zanillya unveils her latest single “In It 4 A Lifetime“, the culmination of the two worlds of her upbringing as she merges musical influences of her Aruban and Macedonian heritage.
Her strong rhythmic vocals that explore feelings of insecurity and self-doubt in her most personal cut to date. She effortlessly glides over a dark and brooding yet dancehall inspired instrumental, complimented with sparse distorted gypsy chants. She enchants from the jump but her message assuredly seeps through.
“Struggling with insecurity and self-doubt my entire life, this song came to me in a moment where I had looked within myself and decided to push forward regardless of the circumstances. It was a point in my life where I felt like giving up but then realizing I could never let go. My dad tried to explain the artist’s faith to me while he was alive, yet I never got the paradox of it until this song was born”.
As she gears up to release her debut EP in 2019, which blends her diverse influences of dancehall, hip-hop and R&B, her previous singles “C.R.S.H.D” and “For You” have firmly established her as one to watch by tastemakers ranging from 1Xtra and Glamcult to i-D, Dummy and The Quietus. The future is bright for this rising star, stay tuned for more music.
