With a casually commanding voice, the rule-breaking swagger of a pirate, and an unequalled stage presence, Brooklyn, NY-based singer-songwriter ZIVA arrives, pushing the boundaries of what is considered traditional and carving her own path within the realms of musical anomalies. She is a departure from the ordinary and the expected, with a knack for creating hit songs, regardless of the stylistic imprints she adopts. She effortlessly moves through different sounds while remaining herself yet always feeling at home in them all. Acclaimed for her versatility and strength, and driven by her desire to inspire, entertain, and empower, ZIVA is a woman of undeniable skill, talent, and panache, flourishing as an artistic powerhouse in her own right.
She has returned with an epic masterpiece, “Lararadi,” an upbeat R&B and hip-hop ballad that embodies a radio staple from start to finish.
The intro alone left a lasting impression on me, and there is something about this track that is reminiscent of Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up”, at least to me. One can’t help but admire the outstanding showmanship unleashed here.
Wearing her heart on her sleeve, she makes sure you don’t forget this performance. She is lively, with a commanding tonality and stunning range that fit perfectly with the track’s essence and narrative.
Her emotive delivery is then supplemented by guest rapper Cliff Lu’s impeccable flows, adding to the track’s depth and resonance.
While there is a futuristic feel to the vibrant beat, there is an inescapable nostalgia about the arrangement that hits you right in the feels, raising your goosebumps in the process.
“Lararadi” is music that is not just heard, but felt! A cosmic capsule that captures the essence of true love and loyalty, every note is a beacon of intimacy, illuminating the path of those who dare to love and be loyal to their better halves.
Like all of her tracks, “Lararadi” has a unique music style that is distinctly ZIVA and a worthy addition to any playlist.
