‘Magical’ follows Zuu’s recent standout single ‘Variation’ featuring grime-heavyweight D Double E and will fall as part of Big Zuu’s anticipated debut album ‘Navigate’ which is slated for release on the 24th September, 2021. The 12-track album will feature a host of impressive names including his cousin AJ Tracey alongside Mae Muller, Kojey Radical, JME, Novelist, Unknown T and more.
Speaking about his upcoming new single and debut album Big Zuu explains “…[Magical] is something different from myself. I don’t always come on a smooth vibe but Donel definitely helped bring out the little singer Zuu in me and I can’t wait for people to hear the record and just dance to it and vibe to it. Hopefully it’ll come at the right time in summer and hopefully the sun can help us out and get the song out there!”
