ZAMA is a Haitian-American songstress, songwriter, and pianist hailing from Boston.
She recently released her new single Stuck. It’s a soulful tune.
Stuck sounds so good. I like the smooth grooves. Besides, the vocals are sublime. Furthermore, I’m also a fan of the solid hooks and soothing harmonies.
Lyrically, ZAMA shines. She has her own writing style. Every line in the song is golden.
The artist wrote Stuck about her own feelings after feeling stuck and struggling to adjust to the new way of life that we’re finding ourselves in. During the first few weeks of lockdown, ZAMA found herself feeling uninspired, but that all changed when the first few lyrics of Stuck popped in her head. WrIting this song allowed her to find her creative rhythm again and to change her mindset on dealing with lockdown. Her proceeds of the song will be going to Transformative Culture Project, a non-profit organization that provides arts and music programs in Greater Boston.
The making of this song was entirely done via social distancing measures which have drastically changed the music industry. ZAMA recorded the track at home in Boston, then was sent to Michele Beneforti in Italy, guitar added by JustAcoustic from London, and finally mixed and mastered by David Altenor of Kingdom Sound Music Group in Everett.
Speaking about the track, ZAMA says: ”My goal in releasing this song is to provide listeners with a sense of healing and to remind them that they’re not alone in feeling that way that they do”
The music video really captures the essence of the song. Visually, it looks cool. The video was shot at home DIY style with help from her brother and with guidance on filming and editing from fellow artist Ayiiti in Paris.
ZAMA is a rising superstar. Her music connects with people.
The song deserves to be heard. It has all the ingredients of a hit.
You can stream Stuck on Spotify or YouTube!
