Today we’re pleased to be introducing the rising artist Zaia to the site. I’ve had his recent track “BLUE” on repeat ever since hearing it and now he’s back for more. This time around he’s unleashed his new single “WASTE MY TIME” early off his forthcoming RESET EP and we’re pleased to be premiering this new song as we await the full project.
The Atlanta-based artist has a genre-blending sound taking inspiration from hip-hop, R&B, funk, rock, soul and more as he effortlessly crafts his own unique lane. His RESET EP tells the story of heartbreak, highlighting each stage of grief with a new song, and this new one is symbolic of anger. Zaia has a one-of-a-kind sonic style we’re already in love with.
The song kicks off with a funky bassline and drumbeat laying a bouncing foundation for his vocals to kick off the energetic track. He brings a sort of sing-songwriter approach to hip-hop with melodic tendencies in his verses that’ll get stuck in your head endlessly. “WASTE MY TIME” is a smooth listen but comes with an edge in the best way possible. Don’t sleep on this rising artist and enjoy!
