Zādok drops a second single off Perspective: Red EP, titled Too Easy
Musician and producer, Zādok, drops his second single Too easy ahead of his EP release titled Perspective Red. The song features SA Hip-hop legend, AKA, Nigerian star, Airboy, and the talented Bali.
The celebratory anthem is about being grateful for life. This came during the depth of lockdown when things were all gloomy for the music industry. Zadok shares that he learned to count his every blessing and appreciate even the little achievements in life. The song is self-explanatory because this winning thing is ‘way too easy’.
This is the one song that came together quite organically. The talented Thabang sent Bali the beat and he jumped on it. Airboy was then visiting SA, from Nigeria, working on his project and doing performances. The guys bumped the song to him and he also instantly had an idea for it.
