“I’ve gotten better as an artist as I’ve become more comfortable in myself. Really that’s when people started fucking with me, when I started fucking with myself,” Zyah Belle told Noisey.

The second single "NOT THE ONE" featuring Tempest, from Zyah's upcoming album Yam Grier, is packed playfully with lyrics, like this one:

"I SAID WHAT I SAID
YOU BETTER RUN WHEN YOU SEE ME COMING
OFF WITH THEIR HEADS
I'M COMING FOR ANKLES, I'M COMING FOR NECKS!"

Reflecting on “NOT THE ONE,” Zyah said, “This song came from the purest energy that day. The music felt really encouraging, it felt really ‘bad bitch,’ and we were like, OK, we have to talk our shit on here.”

The music video is inspired by the drip of sideshow Bay Area nightlife and the dramatic feminine hustle of Spike Lee’s film Girl 6. “The underlying storyline is of these two boss women who run this company,” Zyah said, referencing the company’s slogan recited through the video:
“WE'RE HERE FOR MONEY, NOT EMOTIONS.”

Zyah Belle’s new music video for “NOT THE ONE” is a strong and spellbinding glimpse into the fearlessness of the album to come.
