Zeina is a rising songstress with sultry vocals and trap-inspired tracks–and she's got a delightfully dark vision for her music. She finally landed in LA after bouncing from NYC to Montreal, and began collecting the vision of what her sound should be. After hitting the studio with the likes of Skrillex, DJ Mustard, Dakari and Hit-boy, she settled into the space between jazz, trap and pop. Following her 2017 EP Odd One Out, she dropped her latest single "Tear Drops," as well as a biting accompanying video. 

Zeina's vocals were seemingly made for the track of "Tear Drops," topping the hard-hitting production with her silky yet decisive delivery. The visuals in the video are striking, with gothic aesthetics and stormy images throughout.

Zeina appears on the beach in a leather jacket, in the back of a car with raindrops streaming down the window, not to mention in a wedding dress with blood stains on it. The dramatics of the video work with the heightened emotionality of the single; Zeina pulls off heartbreak with poised ferocity. She sings,

"Don't panic, your heart's broken. You see the changes and now you want me."

"Tear Drops" hones in on the hot-and-cold nature of a relationship, while simultaneously putting Zeina in control of the outcome. Her confidence is nothing short of empowering, and the lyrics of the song feel incredibly familiar.
