Today, one of Holland’s brightest new stars Zanillya unveils her latest single ‘In It 4 A Lifetime’. Premiering via CLASH, on this track Zanillya brings together 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 glide over a dancehall inspired instrumental peppered with distorted gypsy chants.
Speaking on the single, Zanillya says:
“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”.
After an arduous journey through her inner self, the singer and co-producer (with Humphrey Dennis, together they are MariaDennis) of her own sound is gearing up to release her debut EP in 2019, which blends her diverse influences of dancehall, hip-hop and R&B. Earlier this year, her debut and sophomore singles ‘C.R.S.H.D’ and ‘For You’.
The future is bright for this rising star, stay tuned for more music.
