Unique Zayas has already conquered Japan with his debut From Brooklyn to You—which topped the iTunes charts for four weeks—and now he has his sights set on his home turf. Previously signed to Def Jam, the 23-year-old Brooklynite is readying his EP It Is What It Is for release on Impact Records this summer. His first U.S. project features contributions from Claude Kelly, Courtney Harrell, Chuck Harmony, and Jon Jon Traxx.
With his one-of-a-kind style and genre-crossing sound, he’s carving his own lane. “That’s my only focus is to be the voice for the weirdos, for the people like me,” said Unique.
Get familiar with the rising star as he performs his cuts “I Got You,” “Poppa Willy,” and “Show Off” during a recent New York show.
