Québec’s own Zach Zoya releases his brand new song “Slurpee” for listeners to get a taste of. The new track was inspired by a hot summer afternoon. The song brings to life the high-energy, upbeat and beautifully chaotic style that Zoya is known for.
“The song is a firework. It’s colourful, it’s loud,” Zoya mentioned.
The Montréal-based rapper was influenced by music at a young age. The diversity in his music stemmed from the African music through his father, and the North American soul and pop music through his mother. Even while growing up in Rouyn-Noranda, a largely French-speaking city in Montréal, the artist found his rhythm through rapping in English. Zoya explained that the culture of the city played a big part in his career.
“The culture of Québec definitely had a role to play in it. More precisely, moving to Montréal exposed me to a cultural and artistic world I had never seen before,” he said.
Zoya found his flow through his admiration for artists like Kendrick Lamar and Drake. His own music style, however, shines through in his colourful lyrics and vibrant music videos. Zoya’s previous releases like “Who Dat” and “Superficial” prove him to be an out-of-the-box musician of his era.
After spending almost two years in the studio, the artist added that there are more titles on board to release throughout the year.
“I’ve had this amazing body of work in the bank for a minute now. Due to recent events everything was pushed back so I can’t wait to show y’all everything I got. I like to think I’m pretty versatile so there’s definitely something for everyone in there,” Zoya said.
When asked what listeners can expect from the new track, Zoya explained, “I would say Slurpee is for sure in the same vain as Who Dat. I really see it as continuation of that aesthetic – the high energy, slightly goofy type vibe. I hope they love it, I’m confident they will.”
