Fresh off touring the country with GoldLink, D.C. native Chaz French returns with his new single, “What Ya Say.” Backed by some beautifully laid vocals from SABA (not to be confused with Chicago’s Saba) and some slow-rolling production from Kal Banx, Chaz flips the microscope on himself and searches his soul for some much-needed answers.
“This song is a moment of clarity and resolution from things I talked about in my first project, Happy Belated,” Chaz explained to FADER. “On that project I focused on my struggles, where now moving forward I want to concentrate more on getting the mind in tune with the heart to progress for the kids in my city.”
“I’m trying to hear what my heart is saying a little better, which you may not have known at first listen,” he wrote. “A lot of times people sell out for what other people think they should do rather than listen to their heart, but this soul of mine ain’t for sale. On Happy Belated we walked through my struggles together, and now I want to walk with others through theirs.”
Check out “What Ya Say” below, and be on the lookout for Chaz French’s official Happy Belated follow-up, arriving soon.
