Rapper Kay-Z Bearens released his first single in 2015, and though on the underground scene, he's pushed his music over the years.

In 2020, his name has finally been registered on the mainstream scene.

Earlier this week, Bearens, who hails from the Zambezi Region, released visuals to his latest single, You Had A Chance – a video which is accumulating views on YouTube by the day.

Speaking to tjil, the rapper shared that the video was shot two weeks ago at the Brewers Market, previously known as the Warehouse Theatre.

He mentioned that they used the location to capacity as they tried to reach every corner they could, as the place is quite artistic inside.

Shot by Silas Film World of Spectrum Media and directed by Waka, the storyline is based on Bearens being hurt by a girl in his past expressing how he feels as things get better for him.

“It's a story of people switching up when you've made it a few steps ahead in life,” the rapper said.



Going international

He told tjil that he is working on pushing the video to international avenues, saying he aims it to be aired on Trace Africa and Channel O.

Bearens said the video airing big platforms would mean so much to him, as he believes that move would help him represent Namibia's talent to the world.

“The fact that it's sung in English makes it an international song because English is widely spoken around the world. I'm certain many people would relate to it if they watch the video.

“My name would be out there so more opportunities would be opened - I'm talking international features and deals,” he said.



In the pipeline

You Had A Chance is one of the two singles the rapper released this year.

On whether there's a fully-fledged body of work in the pipeline, he said: “I don't think I'll be putting out an album soon, an EP I might drop, but I'm mainly focused on dropping singles and dropping visuals.

“I believe I should first build a huge crowd for my type of music before dropping an album.”
