Producer and singer ZHU may not exactly be in the hip-hop wheelhouse but he's on the frays, collaborating with Mind of a Genius labelmates and r'n'b duo on the cusp THEY. as well as AlunaGeorge. In a similar manner as Skrillex, ZHU could easily crossover to mainstream consciousness and collaborate with all genres of artists in so-doing. First up though, the artist is releasing his debut album, Generationwhy, on Friday. With four days to go, ZHU hits us with another taste of what to expect from Generationwhy.
"Hometown Girl" find him crooning over the constant strum of a guitar, straddling r'n'b, light house and pop music all at once. What a time. Take a listen and be sure to pre-order the album on iTunes.

Even though we're making love it's not passionate
You keep running back into the past
Tryna hold on to my love, but you can't make it last forever
So I must confess
