In a brand-new single available today (Feb. 10), Zacari introduces the masses to “Motions,” featuring top Dawg Entertainment partner Ab-Soul. As evidenced by their soulful offering, the musicians admit their mental health ups and downs, while reassuring listeners that they are successfully addressing the issues they face:
Approximately four years have passed since Zacari released his deCbut EP, Run Wild Run Free, which features a single contribution from Lil Yachty. Over the past year, the Bakersfield-raised star released the quick-strike Sol as well as notable loose cuts such as “This Woman’s Work,” “Edamame,” “Rainy Day” “Good Nights,” featuring Buddy and Isaiah Rashad, “Golden Dolphin,” “Bliss,” and shortly before the year 2023 began, “Restless.” Moreover, he has contributed to tracks by BEAM, SiR, Kembe X, Vic Mensa, DJ Scheme, and M.I.A.
Moreover, Ab-Soul released his long-awaited fifth studio album, Herbert, in December of 2022. SiR, Big Russ, Sean, Joey BADA$$, Lance Skiiiwalker, Jhené Aiko, and others appeared on the 18-song collection. It has been reported that the Carson star Zacari attempted suicide just prior to the completion of Herbert, according to Charlamagne Tha God:
“A large portion of the album was recorded, and the album was almost completed before I did what I did,” he commented. “I jumped as soon as I had finished saying what I needed to say. The decision was a leap of faith, if you will.”
