On ‘Loving You’, Zinoleesky continues his fantastic musical journey

While waiting for his first album, To love you is another light attestation that Zino understands the task at every beat. He knows how to rock the hips, nod his head and swing the waist in a Lamba-obsessed music scene. Along with the Amapiano drum rolls and high beat, a sample of Asa’s 2010 classic ‘be my man‘ is the heart of I like you pace. A celebration of a budding, innocent and colorful romance with a new lover.

Although the track was a viral sound that caught fire on TikTok weeks before its release, the full disc’s shock value allowed To love you to compete for the No. 001 position on Apple Music Nigeria despite stiff streaming competition from certified hitmakers such as davido, Burna Boythe new signatory of YBNL Asake in the same way Dj Spinal and Mavin superstars who all dropped over the weekend. At the time of this writing, To love you holds the third spot on the shuffling charts.

Once considered an underdog given his street course in afrobeat, Zinoleesky continues their fantastic streak of songs with no bads and no missed features before the next highly anticipated Headies award. With each release, the Marlian Records singer proves he deserves this title and more.
