Track Of The Day 16/12 – Zinoleesky


Zinoleesky. Remember the name.

The Nigerian riser has carved out a unique identity, with his phenomenal summer single ‘Call Of Duty’ becoming a bona fide smash. A slick piece of soul-infused afrobeats, it seemed to sit in its own lane, while also being hopelessly inviting.

Closing the year in emphatic fashion, his new ‘GRIT N LUST’ EP lands on December 23rd, and it’s already being billed as his most important work yet.

New single ‘Personal’ is out now, a breathlessly ambitious afro-pop bubbler that incorporates some scintillating production trends. Aligned with that killer vocal, ‘Personal’ is super smooth, yet also feels alien, and startlingly fresh.

The gorgeous new Nouvelle Films-directed video builds a dream world that sits apart from our own – truly, Zinoleesky is working on another level.

Tune in now.
