The Zambian music industry is on the upheaval with the release of the newest song “Ex“, a brilliant collaboration by the legendary Zambian singer-songwriter Za Yellow Man and the pre-eminent rapper, Triple M. Penned by Za Yellow Man, known for his exquisite song storytelling, “Ex” covers the complex theme of rekindling past relationships due to dissatisfaction with the present. Described as a unique blend of emotional roller coaster and melodic genius, the song reflects how the amiss manners of a current partner can make one ponder about their past relationship.
Featuring Triple M, one of Zambia’s finest rappers, the song is lyrically rich, layered with his distinctive lyrical genius, resonating with a spectrum of listeners. Triple M’s contribution expands the song’s depth, offering a different perspective on the story.
“We believe ‘Ex’ will speak to people in many different situations,” says Za Yellow Man. “Love isn’t always simple and doesn’t always move forward in a straight line. Sometimes, past relationships can seem more appealing when present circumstances are challenging.”
