When it comes to the silky-smooth sounds of Neo Soul, there are no finer artists than Adam Ness. Raised in Detroit but now based in Chicago, he is the epitome of a fully-formed talent who is intricate, refined and simply sublime. He’s back with new music, and this time he delivered “Houzkatz” with talented R&B artist Durand Bernarr. The song is a masterpiece and puts Ness’ talents on full display.

Benefitting from an education in Gospel, the lush sounds that tug at the emotional heart strings gave him the building blocks to pursue a career that is delivering music of the highest quality. Touching people on both a spiritual and musical level, he has uniquely developed a style that sits comfortably alongside artists like Frank Ocean, D’Angelo, Maxwell and the eternally brilliant Erykah Badu.

Lush harmonies, deep grooves, inspirational lyrics and fresh perspectives await the audience as Adam delivers on every single promise he has ever made. Destroying stereotypical storylines with his sumptuous songs, he is building on his first critically acclaimed album released in 2019 titled ‘Sagittarius Volume 1’.

Completing the emotional circle, ‘Sagittarius Volume 2’ is about Adam’s journey through young adulthood and a testament to an artist led by the flames of desire. Meticulously crafted with exquisite touches, the album is a clear example of why he sells out venues in Chicago and beyond.

ZayZayy Drops Hot New Song “Walk Wit It”




ZayZayy is bringing the heat this summer! Steadily providing music that’s unique, creative, and always tells a story, ZayZayy has been climbing up the ranks and delivering nothing but hits for his audiences. He’s an up-and-coming artist who is eagerly anticipating his turn in the spotlight. He recently released his new track “Walk Wit It,” which displays his abilities on a whole new level and solidifies him as someone to keep an eye on.

The song is catchy and ultimately relates to a real-life experience that ZayZayy had.

“I would describe my sound as ‘reality’ in a sense to anyone who may not be familiar,” he said. “It’s a sound a lot of people tend to relate to.”

With this new tune, the independent artist, who hails from Liberia, Africa, shows the world what he’s capable of. It’s a profound, introspective track that relates to ZayZayy’s recent experience.

“The song was inspired by a break-in at my apartment while I was out of town in NY and translated into me writing a song about ‘when doing something good, the hate is going to come – gotta embrace it!’” ZayZayy explained in a recent interview.

ZayZayy’s resolve to push even harder was fueled by the song, which he wrote after his flat was broken into. According to him, it was an awful scenario that finally inspired him to write “Walk Wit It” and accept the truth that success is accompanied by hatred. “Walk Wit It” is a nice single that showcases ZayZayy’s narrative and lyrical talents. It features a nice chorus and, in the end, a relaxed atmosphere with some singing and melodic rapping.

In terms of who ZayZayy is as an artist, he claims he is influenced by Davido, Drake, and Young Thug. It’s no surprise that his music has been regarded as a distinct “realistic” sound with a component that everybody can identify with.

“Music initially was used as an outlet to tell my story, like a form of therapy for many years,” ZayZayy said. “I started taking music more seriously in 2019 once I became managed by Round Group Entertainment.”

ZayZayy says he’s had lots of good moments in his music career now that he’s taken his music profession seriously. ZayZayy is just getting started, from working with other artists like Babyface Ray and Lil Dude to utilizing music as a creative avenue to express himself.

“My most proud moment is honestly when my mother accepted my music as a career and having her support,” he said. “Like I said, coming from a third world country, music is not seen as a career.”

ZayZayy is demonstrating that he’s not someone to mess with with songs like “Walk Wit It,” as well as a repertoire of other tracks like “We Not Cool” and his new EP “Just Because.”

When asked what he wants people to take away from his songs, he said:

“I hope my music is receptive and really something people can connect and relate to.”
