Zaneta Grant is an up-and-coming independent singer-songwriter from Maryland. Not too long ago, she released an appealing music video for her “Casual” single via Zahava Records LLC.

Zaneta Grant – “Casual” music video
“You don’t gotta be so smooth, you know just what to do to get people stuck on you. You don’t gotta try so hard to act like you’re the star, that’ll only go so far. Why don’t we keep it casual (We can keep it so low-key, you ain’t gotta stress with me). Baby, let’s just keep it casual (I just wanna be carefree, you can be yourself with me). You got moves and I got time, I ain’t tryna make you mine. Tonight could still be magical if we keep it casual.” – lyrics
‘Casual’ tells an honest tale about a young woman who finds herself on a date with someone new. She doesn’t want her date to play pretend or try to show off in front of her friends. That’s not necessary. Therefore, she tells her date, “I know what you wanna do and I wanna do it too. Let’s get caught up in the groove, ain’t tryna waste no time. Baby, let me blow your mind.”
‘Casual’ contains a relationship-based narrative and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of Janelle Monáe, Amaya Santos, and Snoh Aalegra. The likable, nostalgic R&B tune possesses saturated drums and bass-laden instrumentation flavored with a contemporary R&B vibration. Furthermore, “Casual” serves as a savory treat to what listeners can expect to hear from Zaneta Grant in the near future as she continues to release new music.
“It’ll be more natural if we keep it casual.”
“I wrote ‘Casual’ about my own dating history. When I first jumped into the dating pool, I was not a casual dater. I used to try so hard to impress the person I was interested in, constantly contorting my personality to fit different people to make them like me. In doing that, I ended up attracting people who weren’t for me. I was newly single and resolved to stay that way for a while when I met an amazing guy, and we instantly connected in an effortless way that I’d never experienced before. From being with this person, I’ve learned that sometimes things work out best when you let go, keep it casual, and just let things flow naturally.” – Zaneta Grant explained
Zaneta Grant was raised in a culturally diverse home by Guyanese-American parents. Her artistic journey was shaped by a tapestry of influences. Inspired by soulful voices like Alicia Keys, Jazmine Sullivan, and Amy Winehouse, Zaneta often weaves together R&B songwriting with Afro-Caribbean elements to create her unique sound.
Zaneta also enjoys bringing her delightful and offbeat personality to her songwriting, resulting in captivating storylines that take listeners on a soulful journey with her. With every note and lyrical twist, she invites listeners into her vivid and sometimes whimsical world.
