East end Toronto area emcee Zaze recently released a new single featuring Canadian singer/songwriter Rachel Jeans titled “Part of Me.”
The song’s lyrics detail the thoughts and emotions that went through Zaze’s mind during the process of preparing him self for bringing a new daughter into the world and raising a child the best way possible. It’s a theme that any parent would quickly recognize and appreciate. The beat was produced by Anno Domini Nation, combined with the hook provided by Rachel Jeans the song stands out as a unique addition to the Zaze music library.
And based on the response the song has received so far, I wouldn’t be surprises to see these two team up again in the near future.
We reached out to Rachel Jeans for comment while writing this review and she offered some great words regarding how the collaboration came about and what the song means to her:
“You don’t have to be a parent to relate to this song. It is full of love and a reflection of how family can change your life; whatever family looks like for you,” Jeans explained.
“Zaze loved what I had put together, so we went to the studio to lay down the tracks. I was pleasantly surprised to see Zaze arrive with his daughter for our recording session. It was perfect having her there. She snuck into the vocal booth with me, and by the end of our session, was lip syncing the words back to me. Talk about melt your heart. There was something so serendipitous about how it all came together. Whenever I listen to the track, I’m taken back to that sweet moment. I’m grateful to have been a part of this project.”
“Part of Me” is available now on all digital streaming platforms including Apple Music and Spotify.
