A fast-rising Los Angeles singer/songwriter/actor buzzing right now with his previous single, “All I Need”. Striking while the iron is hot, ahead of his new project, we get a sexy new visual just in time for Valentine’s Day from Zaku for his new single, “Underwater”. Directed by Jay Blaze, Alia, Only Carey and Zaku-himself, the new star plays a lover trying to persuade the leading lady to fall in love with him.
Using imagery, Zaku’s soft vocals and symbolic nature win over both the love interest and fans. A debut visual presentation, “Underwater” is Zaku’s introduction on a global scale. Zaku star power has been on the rise with a strong grassroots fanbase that has been following him since the early days developing his sound.

The Filipino-American’s first EP, All I Need, a five-track project includes breakout songs “Kanpai” and “Alien Girl,” (98k) accumulated over 50,000 streams on Spotify.
