Zikai and Hitimpulse – “Hero” visualizer

“I wanna feel the burn of a thousand suns. It’s been stone cold since he been gone. I wanna slow dance in my living room, feel the heat of somebody new. I ain’t saying I’m in need of a friend, don’t need to spell it out for you to understand. Being on your own can drive you crazy, I need a better image on my mind. I need a hero, I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night. I’m alone in the dark with a broken heart, but the rest is all for you.” – lyrics

‘Hero’ tells a heartfelt tale about a young woman who is in need of someone who can eliminate her loneliness. Apparently, she’s looking good and trying her best to move on from a recent relationship that didn’t work out. Later, she hears her ex-partner’s voice urging her to go back to him. However, she decides not to move backward because she desires to “feel the heat of someone new.”

‘Hero’ contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of Jhené Aiko, Kehlani, and Lil Halima. The likable tune possesses lush instrumentation flavored with contemporary and indie R&B elements. Furthermore, “Hero” serves as a laid-back interpolation of Bonnie Tyler’s 1984 classic single, entitled, “Holding out for a Hero.”

Hitimpulse has amassed over 80 million streams and 50 million video views. Zikai was appointed ‘Artist of the future’ by Swedish radio and performed at Sweden’s Oscar equivalent and biggest online festival. We look forward to hearing more music from them in the near future.

“This ain’t the first cut or the deepest, it’s just my lonely and my defense.”
