Rising Music Artist Spotlight: Zen City
Hi Hustle and Soul Magazine readers, we’re hyped to introduce you to a hot new collaboration between two rising male R&B artists that are sure to make waves in the music industry. Zen City (Devontta & Reece) have joined forces to release two new singles titled “Can We Talk” and “Waiting.”
“Can We Talk” is a heartfelt ballad that tells the story of a relationship that has taken a turn for the worse. The artists sing about their undying love for their partner, but are unsure whether to repair the relationship or call it quits. The emotional vocals and poignant lyrics are sure to resonate with listeners who have experienced the ups and downs of love.
