Zelijah releases new single
RAPPER Zelijah releases his new single “Show U,” a track that has tropical house beats and Jamaican rhythms. “‘Show U’ is an attempt of combining hip hop with nostalgic genres from the 2000s like Y2K Pop, Dancehall, Reggaeton, and a bit of rumba,” Zelijah said in a statement. “It’s also spiced with a bit of Tiktok-ish elements by pitching up the formants of vocals and topping it with a classic drum ‘n’ bass rhythm. And yes, I did produce the whole thing.” “Show U” marks his transition into an artist comfortable with getting in touch with his emotional and soft side. His recent breakup enabled him to rebuild himself and try a different path, lyrically and sonically. The release of the song comes with a music video directed by Leo Malli, who explores the perspectives of different people at a fun and messy party. “I made sure we took real pieces of what Zelijah has seen throughout his life,” Mr. Mailli said in a statement. “Just that it’s all happening in one night. The night we shot the , we were also holding his birthday and listening party, so this was a real party happening. It’s more organic that way.” “Show U” is available on digital music platforms via Sony Music Entertainment.
Waterwalk Records introduces Jason Marvin
CHRISTIAN music label Waterwalk Records welcomes singer-songwriter Jason Marvin to its roster. “Gain,” his new single, is about weathering life’s storms through faith. The singer said that “Gain” was given to him when he asked for a song that directly speaks to his situation. “He led me to Matthew 16:24–28 to remind me that nothing in this world will ever compare to being with Him,” the 30-year-old musician said. “And that even if I lose all earthly treasures, but I still have God, then I have everything.” Brimming with subtle instrumentation and feathery acoustic guitar, “Gain” is calm, warm, and peaceful. “I made sure it would sound like a worship session among a small group of believers rather than a super clean studio,” Mr. Marvin said. The song is produced and arranged by Mr. Marvin and Victor Noora, mixed by Shadiel Chan, and mastered by Jan Fuertez. Mr. Marvin is backed by EJ de Perio on keyboards, Victor Noora on bass and electric guitars, and Luke Sigua on drums. “Gain” can be streamed on Spotify.
