14 AUGUST 2020 (TORONTO, ON) – Today, breakout rapper/singer Zach Zoya releases his latest song “Le Cap” via 7ième Ciel/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Produced by his close collaborator Bougo, a Parisian producer now also based in Montréal, “Le Cap” flaunts Zoya’s rapid, tight flows as he spits “Came in this bitch to beat the best” within the very first second of the song. Rhymes shoot out in machine gun-like succession and then suddenly float atop the melody as and bar after bar, Zoya effortlessly glides between his talents of rapper and singer in his signature delivery style.

“It’s definitely a cocky song,” Zoya says. “Bougo, my DJ who also produces a lot of my stuff, brought the vibe to the song and when I heard the beat, I just knew I wanted to come in with a very fast pace and a staccato pattern to trail the guitar melody. I’m saying that my goal is to be the best, period, and I’m telling my guy ‘Yo bro, no break, no slacking, no playing around until we make it.’ That feeling of cockiness and confidence came out of the beat itself.”
“Le Cap” follows the release of Zach Zoya’s major label debut “Slurpee” which dropped last month and earned support from global outlets such as the Travis Mills Beats 1 radio show on Apple Music, HotNewHipHop, iHeartRadio, Complex, and EARMILK. With “Slurpee” and “Le Cap”, Zoya is sharing a glimpse of the dynamic versatility and melodic flow found on his upcoming debut solo EP Spectrum, due to be released this Fall.
Last month, Zoya performed a virtual concert for the e-sports team Toronto Ultra’s Home Series Weekend – a part of Toronto Ultra Week for the Call of Duty League – broadcasted on YouTube for over 60,000 concurrent viewers during the league’s final weekend of the season. In addition to his captivating performance, Zoya was the first artist to be featured in Toronto Ultra’s brand-new Artist Spotlight series.
Zach Zoya has been one of the most buzzed about rappers in Montréal’s vibrant music scene since the release of his 2018 joint EP, Misstape with Platinum producer High Klassified (Future, The Weeknd). In the two years since, anticipation for new Zach Zoya music has been building with accolades recently rolling in from Exclaim! who named him one of the 10 Emerging Canadian Artists You Need To Hear This June, ELLE Canada who deemed him a “shooting star” and praised his “unique and versatile style”, KIND Magazine who named him one of the Top 20 Artists to Watch This Spring, and Journal de Québec who declared him one of the Best ‘Rap Keb’ Artists of the Decade. With his combination of agile flows, smooth vocals, and charisma, Zach Zoya is an artist to watch in this era of outside-the-box, genreless music.
