Pop star on the rise Zach Hood reveals a new emotional single “I Miss My Friends” featured along with an official video
Kicking off 2022, Zach Hood’s new single “I Miss My Friends” is a characteristically catchy track called “I Miss My Friends.” The song’s teaser videos have already amassed over 280,000 views.
Zach says, “I wanted to pursue this music thing, so I had to move across the country from my lifelong friends. I wanted to make this song for them. Naturally, it’s called ‘I Miss My Friends.’”
About Zach Hood:
Born and raised in Daphne, Alabama, Hood can remember belting out Bruno Mars from his car seat as a toddler. He taught himself how to play piano by watching – and re-watching – countless videos on YouTube. In middle school, he engaged his classmates by taking requests for acapella covers and then posting them on Instagram, tagging the requester back. By his junior year of high school, Hood was hyperactively posting content on TikTok after his ex-girlfriend encouraged him to download the platform.
That’s the story of Zach Hood, now on the other side of a whirlwind year that skyrocketed him from Tik Tok heartthrob to legitimate recording artist. In 2021, Hood released six singles that racked up over 70 million streams and placements on the Global Viral 50 Chart, Radar US, and Pop Rising.
Resonating with listeners, it quickly gained millions of streams across all DSP platforms and landed on Spotify’s coveted New Music Friday playlist. “Isabelle,” Hood’s second single catapulted the artist to a larger conversation in music and racked up 25+ million streams in just the first few months. Not bad for someone who just a few months prior had never set foot into a recording studio.
Zach shares, “I’m just a kid from Alabama who stayed true to himself, never let anyone get in his way, persevered, and stayed on the path I was set for,” he observes. “I knew I didn’t want to go to college or work in a restaurant—I just absolutely had to make music.”
