Out now, artist and respected activist Synead is releasing her third single “Zenith.” The new release follows critically acclaimed singles “Tropicao” and “Lost In The Wild,” which received international support from outlets including Apple Music’s Ebro Darden on Beats 1, Australia’s Purple Sneakers, Tokyo outfit Dance Works, and esteemed publications including V Magazine, Teen Vogue, Nylon, and Solange’s Saint Heron.
Naturally, I was a huge fan of the track’s dancehall influence, and have a strong inclination that this will be a huge song for the summer. With a bouncy synth heavy melody, this number is bound to have you up and moving and rightly so.
Not only does this track have a notably commercial feel to it, reminiscent of Rihanna’s if it’s lovin that you want era, it is also incredibly catchy.
If you didn’t already know, Synead is a 26-year-old New York native that has been no stranger to headlines thanks to her role as co-founder of Millions March NYC at age 23. Synead recruited an estimated 75,000 people to one of the “most prominent anti-police brutality marches the city had ever seen.”
Zenith marks a pivotal moment in the singer’s creative journey, signaling a move in a different artistic direction.
I wait in anticipation of what I can only assume will be great things she has in store for the rest of the year.
