Dafina Zeqiri is a name familiar to the Albanian-speaking music audience, and now Zeqiri is ready to broaden that familiarity to a global audience through her new single “Four Seasons”.
“Four Seasons”, produced by Rick Steel, explores the heartache delivered by a fickle lover across brooding rhodes, rapid arp synths and sultry 808 rhythms. The music video for “Four Seasons” encapsulates the track’s poignancy, which sees Zeqiri appearing alongside Moroccan MC French Montana, and can be viewed below:
Speaking to The FADER, Zeqiri had this to say about “Four Seasons”: “Being that it is my U.S. debut, I wanted to tap into a side I have yet to express through my art. Now I am finally able to create the music I have always wanted to do. Once the intro of the beat came on it immediately took me on an emotional relationship roller coaster based on seasonal changes.”
Zeqiri first appeared on my radar in 2013 with her hit “Bloodah”, a sexy Rasta-dubstep bop, which immediately drew comparisons to Jessie J due to Zeqiri‘s ferocious vocal growls. However, “Four Seasons” allows no room for comparisons to her contemporaries – it’s a Dafina Zeqiri original.
