It is Zacari’s time. First making his grand breakout entrance on Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN., the rapidly rising R&B artist found himself as one of the only three features on the lauded album, alongside the likes of Rihanna and U2. The excitement swirling this TDE’s newest star would not soon die out, as the following year would see him appearing on multiple tracks from the Grammy-nominated Black Panther soundtrack. The jaw-dropping series of appearances from this artist who seemingly came out of nowhere would culminate in 2019 with the release of Zacari’s debut EP, Run Wild Run Free.
The seven-track EP, which hosted a Lil Yachty feature, would cement Zacari as a veritable tour-de-force in his own right, receiving acclaim from Billboard, Pitchfork, The Fader, and more. And with the release of his debut EP, it was our honor to showcase that talent firsthand, as part of our latest “All Eyes On” showcase. Delving into a groove-inducing live rendition of Run Wild Run Free’s lead single, “You Can Do Anything,” TDE’s newest star lit up our stage.
