Alan Z - "Distance"


Atlanta's own singer, songwriter and rapper Alan Z drops an R&B and hip-hop infused record entitled "Distance." Relationships can be toxic and draining thus inevitably leading to some necessary distance between both parties involved. Alan Z wrote "Distance" based on this premise exactly but he did so without being demeaning but rather poetic actually. Music is a universal language and this record has universal appeal, check it out below.

Alan Z raps:

Hopeless romantics invested in pain and passive aggressiveness

If only we both moved on from the past and accepted it

We'd be past all the pettiness
