Listen to Zingah's New Album 'Sessions At The Crib'

Zingah is back with 'Sessions At The Crib' featuring AKA, Amanda Black, Emtee, KLY, YoungstaCPT and more.

Zingah has come back just in time for December vibes with new album Sessions At The Crib. The 11-track album features AKA, Amanda Black, Emtee, KLY, YoungstaCPT and more. Sessions At The Crib is Zingah's second album in the rapper's decade-long career. His debut album, On a Different, was released earlier in the year and the For the Level EP was released in 2018. Zingah refreshingly plays around with alternative sounds in Sessions at the Crib. The project certainly deserves uninterrupted play with each track offering something new for the listener.


"On My Own" featuring KLY is a heartbreaking song about drifting apart and deciding on whether or not to continue with a relationship. Zingah pours his heart out lyrically about the finality of being alone and being, well, very happy about it. The track is mellow with smooth guitar strings. Produced by Lunatik, "Crucial" featuring AKA is a seamless number with heavy bass and without a single beat out of place.

Sessions At The Crib is a melodically swinging pendulum that has a song for every mood. Some tracks are tender like "Pick Up The Phone" featuring Amanda Black. Zingah raps in Zulu in "Olova", a gangster track with a dark and menacing atmosphere. "Collab", on the other hand, featuring Emtee is the standout track and is bound to feature on many summer playlists this coming December.

Zingah has been quite experimental with this latest offering and fans are sure to enjoy it.
