After releasing two EP’s in the last two years, Zhu is finally debuting a full-length album titled GENERATIONWHY. The album is to be 14 tracks long and will contain two popular tracks (which have already been released). These include the electrifying “In the Morning” which caught over eight million views on YouTube and “Working For It” which has received wide play on airwaves.
With one quick look at the GENERATIONWHY short story, we see a super personal theme encouraging this generation to break free from society and conformity. The preview itself is everything we expect from Zhu: mysterious and unconventional. Zhu is a master of uniqueness, lyrical brilliance and dramatic yet soothing performances.
The short story opens by quoting praises made towards Zhu including the New York Times statement that he is “one of the most musically sophisticated of the current generation.” We know he didn’t earn this by playing by the rules or by being anyone other than himself. Zhu’s smooth, unique uptown beats live on through the tracks which he’s already released.
We expect the rest of the album to be anything but left behind.
