Nominated for an NAACP Image Award in 2022, included in Forbes’ “30 Under 30” Class of 2021 and featured in Billboard’s “21 Under 21: Ones To Watch Zoe Wees kicks off with a impressive new single “Don’t Give Up”
She recorded the song with producers Patrick Pyke Salmy and Ricardo Muñoz, who helmed Golden Wings, her debut EP, and Leon Milla.
Zoe says: “Sometimes the weight of the world feels too heavy to bear and most of the time giving up seems like the easiest way.” “This song is a reminder to me that this is not an option and that I’ve got the power to overcome anything that comes my way. You’re stronger than you think and you’re never alone. And even when the world turns upside down, never give up.”
Praising an earlier single, EUPHORIA. noted, “‘Third Wheel’ has all the teenage angst of hitting a certain wall in a relationship balanced with really witty songwriting that shows the emotional maturity of the up-and-comer…soaring guitars and tight drum lines create a very delineated contrast with Wees’ unbelievably powerful voice…” “Girls Like Us,” from Golden Wings, was included in a New York Times Magazine article tracing the lineage of “the sad banger,” and hailed by People as “a vulnerable pop anthem that pushed for togetherness and solidarity to girls around the world.”
She’s collaborated with 6lack, Kygo and Felix Jaehn and appeared on such shows as “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” the American Music Awards and Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
