Zakee’s “But You” is an Emo Valentine Dream
“Zakee collaborates with fellow Philadelphia vocalist, Res, for the latest single on his sophomore LP,Rise of the Rebels: Assimilations, due out this spring. A sweet ode to a lover, ‘But You’ draws the listener in with a catchy hook that you’re bound to find yourself singing to your boo. First up is Res’s sultry voice on the verse,showcasing a more demure vocal than the soul rock fans are used to hearing from the songstress. Zakee’s familiar raspy drawl floats over a soft bed of stripped down guitar melodies,and their harmony results in a genre-defying, mood-setting lullaby…a lullaby for sexy time.
Zakee notes, ‘I’m a Pisces, so I’m emo by nature. “But You” definitely channels my sensitive side, and I hope it will strike a chord with anyone who has someone special in their life. It’s also really dope to work with Res, because we’ve been friends for years.'”
