Rising South London artist ZION has released new single ‘Lay You Down’ via Virgin EMI today.
Produced by renowned London production collective THE FANATIX (Giggs, Nicki Minaj, Chip, Style G), ‘Lay You Down‘ received it’s first play from DJ Target on 1Xtra last night and is the latest track from the 19-year-old British-Nigerian talent set to take over the UK R&B scene.
Shot in London’s infamous Cargo venue and Notting Hill the video was directed by Luke Biggins (Stefflon Don, MNEK) and is an ode to Mario’s classic ‘Just A Friend’. Smooth vocals, R&B vibes and Afrobeat influences secure Zion’s upward trajectory.
After gatecrashing the UK R&B scene last year, the charismatic young Londoner has been on the rise making waves with recent tracks ‘Friendzone’, ‘The Point’, ‘No Wahala’ and ‘Her, Her & You’ and has collectively garnered nearly 5 million streams to date.
Following the release of ‘Lay You Down, this month will also see ZION headline a sold out O2 Islington Academy2 show.
