"Zeze" is a song by American rapper Kodak Black featuring Travis Scott and Offset. It was released by Atlantic Records on October 12, 2018.[2] The song was produced by D. A. Doman.[3] The song debuted at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100 behind "Girls Like You" by Maroon 5 featuring Cardi B and at number one in Canada.

Background[edit]

On August 18, 2018, Kodak Black was released from prison after having been arrested on multiple charges in January 2018.[4] Only three weeks later, he was spotted in a recording studio with American rapper Travis Scott.[5] The footage of the artists listening to a new beat, which would later turn out to be the instrumental of "Zeze", subsequently became a viral meme.[6]

Remix[edit]

On October 24, 2018, Tyga and Swae Lee released an unofficial remix called "Shine".[7]
