Watchlist: Zenia, "Favorite Song"

Rising artist Zenia debuted her new single "Favorite Song" on February 14. It's the first song from the alternative pop artist in 2021. The new single highlights Zenia’s sultry vocals, depthy lyrics, and a dark vibey synth that fits perfectly with bass.


Zenia, originally from Bellevue, WA now lives in Los Angeles working on her music. She loves writing lyrics that convey a feeling, activism, depth, protest, or a purpose.I wrote Favorite Song about being manipulated and misled in a relationship. Where it seems someone cares for you, but in truth they’re using you, and now you’re realizing you were hooked in a cycle of disrespect” explained Zenia about the inspiration behind the song.



“I wrote 'Favorite Song' because of many experiences I’ve had in human bonds, romantic as well as friendships and relatives, where I got caught in the performance of fabrications they were putting on. I thought I was their 'favorite,' a priority, or of some importance at all, but in truth was just being led on as though I were. Eventually, as easily as hello, came goodbye, as easily as goodbye, came hello. It was never ending, yet consistently intense. I came to realize they never had the capacity for compassion or respect, for themselves and least of all for me. The severity of that level of manipulation was shattering, to believe you’re cared for only to realize it was a deception based on their need to be in control," said the artists.


Zenia singlehandedly produced her first album at the age of 15 and continued to write over 200 songs before she turned 21. She aims to create music with a meaning that inspires others to grow and inspire one another — be sure to keep up with her on social media as she plans to release a series of singles over the next year.
