ZORA Shares Video for New Song ‘Fastlane’

    Chicago-born, Minneapolis-based artist ZORA has dropped a new single called ‘Fastlane’. Check out its accompanying video below.

    “I got the inspiration for FASTLANE while sitting playing Mario Kart 8 with my sister Myia Thornton,” ZORA said in a press release. “I decided to write a silly little diss track as if I was a player in the game, using video games and racing motifs as a satirical way of dealing with my personal baggage from feeling like I’m living life in the fastlane, haha. Then, I put the song away for a little over a year because I didn’t think that people would like it. Then, a year later, my amazing partner Carly listened to the song and heard something special, saying ‘You HAVE to put this song out!’ A little over a year later, I re-recorded the original demo, changed up a few lyrics, and now we have FASTLANE.”

    ZORA’s debut album, Z1, arrived last year. Earlier this year, she teamed up with Destiny Spike for ‘The Bitch Is Back (press)’.
