New Sensation, Zalarella offers a rebel vibe with her new single ‘Run For Your Money’
BROOKLYN, NY – Nearly everyone is familiar with the story of Cinderella – the young girl who is abused by her evil stepmother, adopted by a fairy godmother, granted a magical evening during which she falls in love with a prince, and ultimately finds her “happily ever after.” It’s a beautiful tale of an underdog whose rags-to-riches journey serves as a metaphor for attaining success and fulfilling your dreams.
That’s exactly the kind of story this Brooklyn native is telling. This R&B artist is one of the fastest-rising talents on the East Coast, and she’s fully embracing the Cinderella metaphor by adopting the stage name Zalarella. And like Cinderella, she had given up on her dreams for a while but found a renewed hope for the future when her new single “Run For Your Money” began to receive a lot of attention from new audiences.
“I’ve been through many mishaps and struggles and because of that, I feel like I’m the urban version of Cinderella,” she said. “I’ve gone through a lot of growing pains throughout the years”.
Her first single, ‘Run For Your Money’ is a song that touches on feeling emotional emptiness in a relationship after longing for it for so long. It’s a dark, compelling and edgy R&B type of feel that talks about no longer wasting your time on a guy that doesn’t value you. I’m encouraging others not to wait around for a call or for the love and affection of a man that doesn’t see your worth. Don’t feel sorry for yourself and wait for something that doesn’t exist.”
Endless obstacles and lack of support took its toll on her throughout the years – so much that she felt compelled to walk away from music completely for a long period of time. As fate would have it, her true calling came back to surface.
“It took a lot of soul-searching and evolving before I could come back to music,” she said. “But eventually, I realized I couldn’t make everyone happy. I don’t want to limit myself because of what others think are my limits.
She concludes, “I’ve been through a lot in my life and that gives me inspiration to share my life lessons. That alone gives me a unique voice that can connect with others. I’m marching to my own beat – that’s what’s in my heart. I can inspire others to do the same.”
