ZEKE FOREVER NEW RELEASE: WONDERLAND
Can we just say we feel like we have a hidden gem here? “wonderland,” by Zeke Forever featuring Oseph Parks is giving us a major cross between of N’SYNC* and Tyler the Creator. Yes, we know that’s weird to say but hello, we’re having a moment here! This song is one-of-a-kind and the story behind it is kinda the cutest we’ve ever heard because we’ve been there too. Do we know someone is trouble? Yes. Do we talk to them anyways? Yes! Did we have fun?….. Yes. But, this isn’t about us, this is about Zeke Forever, so listen to his story below.
THE HONEY: WHAT IS THE STORY/MESSAGE WITH YOUR SONG? WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION?
ZEKE: “Wonderland,’ is such a funny record to me because I wrote this song about crushing on someone. It’s another story in the awkward saga I call my love life. So, it all started at my job at the time. My boss walked in and introduced a new coworker. It was so funny because before I didn’t even hear their name and I instantly knew they were gonna be trouble. At the moment it was almost as if an angel and a demon popped on my shoulder leading me on what I should do. This song is the conversation between all three of us.”
THE HONEY: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LYRIC OF THE SONG? BREAK IT DOWN FOR US!
ZEKE: “‘You gotta body like a wonderland, if you want it you can get it. Ain’t no middle man.’
I remember running to the bathroom so I could record that melody. The words just kind of came and I died laughing because what the heck. It wouldn’t get out of head. So, when it was finally time to record the song, that was the first thing I recorded. It was the foundation for the whole song.”
THE HONEY: ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO SHARE ABOUT THIS SONG?
ZEKE: “‘Wonderland,’ features an amazing artist based in Las Vegas ‘Oseph Parks’. The song is heavily influenced by the likes of Michael Jackson, KAYTRANADA, DUCKWRTH, Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa and Lady Gaga.”
