RGM RATING (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
A mesmerizing and soulful reflection of feeling like an outcast.
Atlanta, Georgia native VZN (pronounced vision) is a musical artist with a long-standing creative passion. His musical inspirations include artists like Usher, Donny Hathaway, and D’Angelo. In his youth, VZN notably contributed background vocals to Mariah Carey’s Charmbracelet and in his professional career has been featured on albums like Webbie’s Savage 4 Life. VZN’s latest release is the R&B/Soul EP BLACK SHEEP.
The title track off VZN’s new work is a silky smooth reflection of the struggles of feeling different and not wanting to conform simply to fit in. VSN’s soft vocals blend in nicely with the light, upbeat instrumentals, which have a slightly airy tone. “BLACK SHEEP” has a bit of a retro vibe that’s reminiscent of the late 90s/early 2000s R&B style. If you’ve ever felt like an outsider trying to fit in, you’ll definitely feel the connection to VZN’s emotional experience as the “BLACK SHEEP” amongst the pack.
Chicago based writer and creative. Fan of 80’s horror, fancy coffee drinks, and late night drives.
