Zaena x Jason Maek are two names that you need to know. This month, the duo has released three new singles “Chillin,” “Overtime,” and “Being Me.” Zaena x Jason Maek write, and produce their own music, and also direct their own music videos. The first two tracks, “Chillin” & Overtime” are vibey fun tracks, while “Being Me” is bringing awareness to mental health.
Zaena x Jason Maek compliment each other, perfectly. “Chillin” is a complete vibe. From the production, to Maek’s raspy rap voice, and Zaena’s whistle tone, the song moves you from beginning to end.
“Overtime” takes us on a fantastic bus trip. From live instruments, to riders singing Zaena’s heavenly notes, this video is full of fun. The song asks “were you born just to pay bills?” In a climate where creatives are emerging, and more people are wanting to free themselves from the traditional 9-5, “Overtime,” is the perfect motivation.
Today, the duo released their new track and video “Being Me.” The mental health awareness video is a collection of uncomfortable clips that were never supposed to be seen. Through Maek and Zaena’s bravery, they released the clips to bring awareness to mental health issues and show fans that there is beauty, even in dark times. Zaena x Jason Maek have decided to donate revenue from the track to organizations that provide mental health resources.
