Slick beats, heavy bass, and melodic vocals combine to form a moody, yet inspiring track about making things work out. Together, Zora and BTru have created a staple in this summer’s Hip-Hop playlist. Check out the song below:
Zora is a Hungarian-American, electro-acoustic vocalist, songwriter, producer, and keyboardist, known for her haunting delivery and thought-provoking lyrics. Her style of singing in “It’s Working’” is contemporary with today’s trip-hop music, while also being smooth and eliciting sensual textures with every word she speaks out. There is a nice rhythm that unites her voice with the trap beat, uplifting guitar licks, and boom-shaking bass that envelope the song.
The track features BTru, a Korean-American rapper, singer, songwriter, and sound engineer. His voice conterplays with Zora’s in a balanced way, and each singer tells their own side of the story. BTrue’s breakdown line: “Tell me what you want, what you really, really want, I can anything for you, girl / You’re my everything… don’t worry I’ll give you my world” is what makes this song stand out. It ties the string of the story together and leaves the listener with a sense of resolution. The song is about changing for the better, and in a way, the experience makes us better for having listened to it.
Overall, for anyone looking for a short yet sweet Hip-Hop track that sets the mood, get ready to recline back and vibe to, Zora’s “It’s Workin'” on repeat.
