Zaena Morisho who is currently based in Los Angeles, is a singer-songwriter, recording artist, and performer who was born in the DR Congo and raised in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, and America. She recently released her debut Pop/RnB album “Break the Surface” which includes the hit song “Ur Love.” This popular track has amassed over one million views on YouTube in just under 4 months. Zaena sings in English, Swahili, Lingala, Nyaja, and French. Zaena Morisho’s latest 6-track Ep, “You Don’t Know”. Two songs from the Ep, “Gimme All Your Love” and the title track, “You Don’t Know” have already been backed-up by supporting videos through VEVO on Youtube. The highlight tracks are obviously the danceable club bangers “Gimme All Your Love” and “Play My Song”, but I particularly liked the mid-tempo bump of “Batteries” and the slow burner “Until The Sky Falls”. Recently, several pop singers from across the pond have been making it in the US. The first song I heard by Zaena, “Gimme All Your Love”, is what initially piqued my interest. But then I realized that she has this twisted little edge that makes her much more mysterious than many of the usual female dance music artists. She adds a layer of African complexity to solid and enjoyable dance/pop music.
