Breakout star Zoe Wees teams up with GRAMMY-nominated R&B singer-songwriter 6LACK on her new single “That’s How It Goes” released today via Capitol Records. It arrives with an official visual that was shot in Kiev and directed by Oliva Rose (who helmed the video for 6LACK’s popular track “East Atlanta Love Letter.”) The two artists co-wrote the powerful track, which contrasts the light and dark energies found in life:
I’ve been picking myself off of the floor, every damn night I start a war/ I got all these problems on my mind, I’ve been trying hard to survive/ This world is cruel, you love then you lose, until your heart stops
All my life, all my life, all my life, yeah, I’ve been told/ That’s how it, that’s how it goes, yeah, you gotta fight on your own/ Who needs enemies, friends like these, when I need them they don’t call/ They all got their reasons, their demons, they don’t know
6LACK made sure to share some words of appreciation for the collab. “Really happy to be able to work with people that speak to my spirit directly,” he says via press release. “Zoe Wees created a bridge from her world to mine, and ‘that’s how it goes’ is a song that carries a message that’ll never fade. triumph through despair. it reminds me of where I came from, who I am, and where I want to go next.”
Last month, Wees collaborated with renowned producer Kygo on the track “Love Me Now,” which has already racked up over 30 million streams worldwide. The 19-year-old artist’s first two hits, “Control” and “Girls Like Us” from her debut EP, Golden Wings. The former even led to her U.S. television debut on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
