Juno Award Nominated R&B Songstress Zenesoul Returns With Emotive And Uplifting New Single ‘KEOTR’

On the back of two sold-out Candlelight Concerts in Toronto to celebrate Valentine’s Day, and her first headline concert in Atlanta for Black History Month, JUNO Award nominated R&B singer and songwriter ZENESOUL is excited to reveal ‘KEOTR’, her first single of 2024, and her first piece of music since last year’s critically acclaimed Fantasy EP series. Serving as an early taste of what to expect from her next EP that arrives later this year, ‘KEOTR’ comes with a beautifully emotive and afrocentric music video, shot in Lagos, Nigeria, and put together by burgeoning filmmaker Mic Daviz (Skales, Zlatan, Portable), and video producer Tfry (Asake, CKay, Victony).

Written and composed by Zenesoul, produced by JMS, who has previously worked with Cruel Santino, Lady Donli, among others, and engineered by JUNO Award-winning musician Nate Smith (TOBi, Lu Kana, Sean Leon), ‘KEOTR’ is a glorious alternative R&B masterpiece that sees Zenesoul leaning further into her Nigerian heritage with lush afropop sensitivities, mixed in with her motif soulful sound. The uplifting track sees Zenesoul calling on herself and others to keep going, and keep staying true to themselves in love and relationships, despite the pain and toxicity that may be around them. In her own words, ‘KEOTR’ is a reminder “to guard your soul and maintain focus on who you aspire to be”.

Speaking further about the inspiration behind ‘KEOTR’, Zenesoul says, “This song is inspired by me wanting to create something uplifting despite the toxic energy that I feel is outside when it comes to the dating world. It’s a reminder to myself and others to keep being a good person and to continue to love regardless of it all. Everything may be falling apart but keep eye on the road and maintain who you are”. About the accompanying music video, she adds, “This video is probably one of my favourite videos! Everything came together beautifully! The inspiration for the video was to show a strong African woman who will not lose herself and I believe this video captured that perfectly”.
