It’s been two years since Zacari released his breakout EP Run Wild Run Free, a seven-track offering that saw a single assist from Lil Yachty and marked his first release as a member of Top Dawg Entertainment. Since then, the Cali talent has delivered loose singles like “This Woman’s Work,” “Edamame,” “Good Nights” (a remix of SZA’s “Good Days”), and “Rainy Day” with Isaiah Rashad and Buddy — all of these songs may or may not be taken from Zacari’s official debut LP, said to be titled Stereo Miracle. Outside of his own drops, he can also be heard contributing to songs like Kembe X’s “Raised a Fool,” SiR’s “Mood,” Working On Dying’s “Thang On Me,” DJ Scheme’s “Homesick,” Aaryan Shah’s “Renegade,” Vic Mensa‘s “FR33DOM,” and REASON‘s “Left Hand.”
Today (Dec. 8), Zacari returns with a new EP titled Sol, which sees four cuts and a feature from singer-songwriter Justin Nozuka on the standout cut “Blossom.” Co-produced alongside J-Louis and Aaron Bow, “Blossom” sees the artists singing about the joys of newness in a relationship:
“Love was just an idea, just a fantasy until you showed me in reality, the possibilities of new energy, haven’t felt excitement in a really long time I can’t lie, I was uninspired you gave me a new meaning a new feeling, an understanding, you respected every boundary, you’re so accepting, wasn’t expecting for you to be here still, I don’t think you know, what you do to me…”
Another track, the Al Cres and SkipOnDaBeat-backed “Butterflight,” stresses about not letting a toxic situation alter who you are as the beautiful person you are:
“Don’t ever change for anybody, don’t ever trade your soul, don’t even listen to him, he don’t know nothing at all, I try not to get involved, but really it’s breaking my heart, how you keep changing for him, never forget who you are…”
