Last month, A.CHAL blessed his fans with his third studio LP Far From Gaz, which comes with 10 tracks and was led by well-received singles like “Dirty Dancin” and “Tappd’n.” Via press release, the Peruvian-American talent opened up about personal challenges he faced when it came to the album’s creation:
“The reasons I made music changed. I felt like I was chasing something, like I was making music to feed my ego. I had lost control. I was frustrated and the fans kept asking where the music was.”
Accompanying Far From Gaz is a dope visual for “Zorro,” another previously released drop that A.CHAL produced alongside Frank Rio and Patrick Romantik. As previously reported by REVOLT, the melodic cut sees the international star reflecting on his nomadic past while taking inspiration from his own cultural instrumentation:
“This song takes me back to a time of commotion when I was driving from state to state in my black truck with tinted windows. Dealing with all that pressure, I felt like Zorro. The music was inspired by Peruvian Boleros my dad would play when I was a kid.”
The clip for “Zorro” comes courtesy of Instituto and sees A.CHAL living a boss’ life, complete with cinematic shots that range between apparent torture of enemies to a hot-and-heavy moment with a love interest.
Not done with feeding top tier content to the masses, A.CHAL has also decided to liberate a couple of live performance clips for us all to enjoy — something that we previously saw with last year’s “Hollywood Love.” This go ’round, we get to enjoy some intimate renditions of “Nana” and “Selena,” the latter of which sees him playing a dangerous game with a woman that’s in a relationship of her own:
“She like my Bonnie, callin’ me papi, we got a thing goin’, but we won’t let them know, Maria, Mariana, I’ll make you sing like Selеna…”
Check out Far From Gaz and the aforementioned videos below.
