Soulful Pop Artist Zhanel Shares Personal Track 'Superficial Love'

Soul-pop songstress Zhanel (Ja-nel) channels 90s R&B in her track ‘Superficial Love’. Reminiscent of artists such as Brandy, Monica and TLC, the track has a dark yet sassy energy that is empowering to listen to. Produced by 50 kiks, the track is taken from her latest album ‘Regrets’.

“I’d gone through [a situation] where a guy I liked was toying with my emotions. One minute he was into me and the next he was into someone else...I took inspiration from both Summer Walker’s song Playing Games and Ruth B’s song Superficial Love" - Zhanel shares.

With a family history of musicians, music runs in Zhanel's veins. Her father is a guitarist and her grandfather Phil Guilbeau – a well-known trumpeter – played alongside Ray Charles and Count Basie. Zhanel and her producer/ brother Lawrence “50 kiks” Guilbeaux have been producing, composing, and arranging for some time now and bounce creatively off of each other to create a truly unique sound all their own.
