New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
It has been one year since Zhavea's song "Gimmie that love" a calibration with the king of dancehall, Beenie man rose to NO.1 on Caribbean charts. The Grenadian/ American singer is about to shake things up again with a new single, called "Victim."
The song shows her, once again embracing her west Indian culture, with a cool modern reggae pop vibe. Victim tells of a woman who found out that her man had done her wrong. He pleads his love to her, but she is not interested. Not anymore.
"This is a song that a lot of women can relate to," said Zhavea, whose last single "Johnny
" also spoke of a bad relationship. However, unlike Johnny, Victim reveals a much stronger side to Zhavea. She shows some straight up girl power, proving she is not about to put up with being disrespected. Confident and cool, she walks out, leaving him broken and hurt. "And now I got another victim/ who've been shot by my love/ Yes I've got another victim/ Who can't seem to run/ Now I've got another victim/ broken hearts and blood," she sings on the chorus.
Of course the song is not speaking of her actually shooting her lover. He believes she loves him too much to leave, she however, shoots down his ego, letting him know she is the only one who will be dealing out some pain. She tells him to "Call 911," as she walks out on him.
"We are all looking for love, however, when the line into disrespect is crossed there is nothing left to say but "Ram-pa-pa-pam pow!" as you walk out on him for good. said Zhavea.
Victim was written by Dwight Christopher
Allen and Zhavea, produced by Jamaican producer Matthew Dominic Keaveny aka Keely Keyz who was also one of the producers on her entire Warrior
Album, which includes her smash hit "Gimmie that love". Keely Keyz has also worked with top acts like Sean Paul, Mavado, Migos, Verse Simmonds, and Popcaan, producing Popcaan's hit single "Nasty Girl
Beenie Man, Mr. Vegas
and LA rapper Thurz has been Zhavea's past collaborators. She however, is keeping her standards higher hoping to one day have the opportunity to collaborate with Drake
as well as fellow West Indian artist Rihanna.
Victim is set for a July 29th release. The single will be available on Tidal, Spotify, iTunes to name few, as well as Caribbean, European and US radio stations.
