Ziyaad Luceō isn’t afraid to show his most vulnerable side. Just check his last cut Broken Skies (along with our Dissection Interview.) An excerpt from the convo is shown below:

I’m not scared to make risks with my craft so I’m trying to make more abstract artistry. My love and passion for music motivates me to be the best artist I can be day in and day out. I’m striving to be the best!

He wasn’t lying on the abstract part – as his newest record, Lost In Translation (What Happened To Us?) is some of the most experimental r&b I’ve heard in some time. The best part about his music is that it works – really well. He’s gaining new fans by the hundreds, boosting his followers and plays with every release.

I couldn’t help but smile when I learned it was produced by Chicago group ThemPeople. The mastering when to Ziyaad himself – and the end result blew me away. He puts pen to paper to communicate a relatable story of sadness and despair when a perfect relationship isn’t perfect anymore. It hit me at just the right time – and I’m sure others will feel the energy too.
