Zhavia Continues To Impress With The Soulful “Deep Down”
After stealing the show on Fox’s The Four, 17-year-old Zhavia Ward quickly inked a deal with Columbia Records. She debuted earlier this year with a feature on Diplo’s Deadpool 2 banger, “Welcome To The Party,” and officially arrived in late July with an emotional ballad called “Candlelight.” That track showcased her powerful vocals as well as the unique personal style that won her millions of social media followers. And those fans obviously liked what they heard, with the song racking up more than 13 million streams in just over a month.
The talented teenager returns today (August 30) with a defiant mid-tempo called “Deep Down.” The soulful groove artfully shows off Zhavia’s range, while the lyrics offer something of a personal mantra. “Something deep down is tellin’ me ‘listen to your gut,'” she sings on the chorus. “Your instincts, you should always trust.” That’s some good advice. The grungy video also arrived this morning and it finds the breakout star wandering around London. Watch the Xavier Damase-directed clip below.
