Berlin-Based Singer K.ZIA Takes Us to ‘The Genesis’

Over the past few months, we have discovered a lot of new artists that blew us away with their talent. The Brussels-born K.ZIA is definitely one of them, because her soulful R&B has conquered our hearts. After releasing a handful of songs, the singer will release her highly anticipated debut album early next year. ‘The Genesis’ will explore different themes like self-empowerment and self-love but is foremost the apotheosis of years of hard work.

A feeling of comfort and safety overcame us on a cloudy Wednesday in Brussels when we met with K.ZIA in the famous Flagey building. It wasn’t the first time we caught up with the Berlin-based singer. In September, we already met her on a cosy day in the German capital where she introduced us to her creative mindset. Since her music has inspired us so much in the past couple of months, we asked photographer Ines Vansteenkiste-Muylle to join us for a photo shoot and let K.ZIA introduce herself by answering some short questions.

Who is K.ZIA?

K.ZIA is an artist. A young woman with a story and emotions to share with whoever wants and needs to receive. She is a singer, songwriter, director, and independent artist. She is about spreading love and living life in honesty, tolerance, and growth.

What does K.ZIA think about the world?

The world is a beautiful and ugly place. Life is such a blessing, but the world we are in has facets that are really really not pretty. That’s why it’s important to create art that helps us speak out! Point out! But also survive it all by looking at the beauty of it. Because there is a lot of that too.

Who is the most special person in K.ZIA’s life?

The most special person in my life is me. It’s the only person I will have with me at all times and until I die; it’s important I get along with myself !!

What does K.ZIA want to achieve in the near future?

In the near future, on a professional level, I want to anchor myself more around the globe. I want to go on tour, create with more artists and expand! On a more personal level, I want to find the right balance between work and time off to be with my loved ones and myself. I want to build my empire physically and mentally and leave behind all the anxiety of 2021 and only keep the growth.

What does K.ZIA want to tell on her debut album?

Hmm, the debut album is mainly a “HEY BITCH, LOOK OVER HERE. AIIGHT, LET’S GET STARTED!”

K.ZIA’s new single “I Got Your Back” is out now on all platforms
