Talk about a dream team! After linking up with Zayn Malik for a stunning rendition of “A Whole New World” from the classic Disney film Aladdin, Zhavia, who is only the young age of18, is the first to state that she didn’t even believe that this opportunity was real.
“My manager got an email from Zayn’s manager saying he wanted me to be part of it. At first, I didn’t think it was real,” she says “When I found out it was legit I was so stoked! He’s an amazing artist and it was a huge opportunity,”
Aladdin was one of the most highly-anticipated films of the year, the live action remake of the beloved film has captured hearts of fans across the country, and to work on the film’s soundtrack was a dream come true for Zhavia.
“I love Disney, the premiere was really cool. The movie was amazing and our song played at the end of the credits!” she said. “We waited to hear it.”
Although, Zhavia is also focused on her solo music these days, and amidst her work on Aladdin, she found time to hit the studio to record her forthcoming album.
Her most recent single, “17” was released on May 31, and it’s a super catchy track with an upbeat tune, that has a surprisingly deep meaning if you take a closer look at the lyrics.
The singer admitted that the track is deeply personal and was penned about her own experiences.
“That song is bout my life and how I got to where I am now. It’s very personal. “It’s just a bunch of experiences I’ve had,” she says, before explaining that penning relatable tracks is important to her. “I feel like as a writer one of the struggles is that you don’t want to make it too personal to where it could hurt you, but you also want people to understand and relate to it.”
Zhavia fans can expect more from the singer in 2019!
“Hopefully I’ll be going on tour! and I’ll be working on a full album,” she adds.
