Zhavia quickly became the breakout star on the show and although she didn’t win the competition she grew her social media following to over 3 million. Zhavia was quickly signed to a million dollar deal with Columbia Records. Fans patiently awaited the singer’s debut single and now the have it with the release of the new song from Zhavia Candlelight.
Previously Zhavia appeared on the Deadpool 2 soundtrack, making her mainstream debut alongside French Montana, Diplo and Lil Pump on “Welcome To The Party”. The Zhavia Candlelight single is her solo debut.
“I’m so excited to release my first single ‘Candlelight,’” Zhavia said of the new release. “This song means so much to me. I’ve had this concept and some of the lyrics for a few years now and it has finally been put into an incredible song. I got to write it with one of my favorite artists, Somo. This song represents one of the hardest times I went through, where I felt I had no hope and for the first time in my life I thought my dreams wouldn’t come true. Over time I realized the one thing I did have control of was the way I saw the world and the things around me. Learning to always be optimistic and always believing there is a way even when you don’t know how, led me to where I am now. Always be a dreamer!”
The stunning visual was shot in Newberry Springs Desert outside Los Angeles and directed by Clément Oberto. Watch the Zhavia Candlelight visual below.
