Premiere: Reid Zakos Is Not The “Villain” In His Latest Pop-Ballad

Reid Zakos is a powerful, independent artist born in Calgary, Canada. Born into a musical family Reid has a strong background in both musical theatre and dance, the arts are in his DNA. Heavily influenced by Gwen Stefani and Lady Gaga, Reid has a taste for the theatrical side of music and also holds a strong passion for fashion. If this is the first time you’re tuning into Reid Zakos’ music, you’re in for a treat. His style is a brilliant musical blend of pop-dance crossover hits with a dramatic ballad-like ambiance. We last featured his energizing dance single “Gladiator” on BuzzMusic and it blew us away. 

Reid Zakos is now back with an enchanting pop ballad titled “Villain”. Beginning with a gorgeously stripped aura of just piano and Reid’s stunning vocals, “Villain” doesn’t take long to evolve into a bone-chilling, heartfelt anthem. You can hear that Reid Zakos has poured his heart and soul into this release. Written by both Reid Zakos and Tess Anderson, the overall sentiments and powerful lyricism focus on the way we are perceived and sometimes misunderstood when, in fact, our intentions are good. Although the track is more somber than some of Reid’s previous releases, we’re still blessed with the upbeat bounce of a backing track to bring the energy. I’d love to hear “Villain” in an intimate live setting to truly showcase Redi Zakos’ charisma and sheer vocal power. Well worth a listen!
