Zoey wants to help embolden all Black women with his brand new song.

Earlier this month, the Miami-based artist released his new single "African Gal." The afrobeats banger allows him to profess his love for a slew of African queens from all over the continent and make them feel good about themselves.

"I pretty much did this song to just uplift Black women from different cultures in different countries," Zoey tells iHeartRadio. "I’m just tired of all the degrading women and the negative music so I did something I know for sure several other countries will be more than happy to tune in to."

The artist formerly known as Zoey Dollaz has been teasing the record since he first previewed it on social media back in March. His song has received plenty of support over the past few months from the likes of Rick Ross, Fabolous, 03 Greedo, Sukihana and others. "African Gal" is the latest solo single that reflects his evolution from a Miami rapper into an internationally known artist. He previously released his single "Bonjour," which was another upbeat, afro-centric hit.

As he continues to gain global appeal, Zoey is also focused on helping his home country of Haiti by any means necessary as gang-related violence continues tears the island nation apart. In honor of Haitian Heritage Month, he teamed up with Fat Joe to help bring vital items to the people of Haiti like blankets, mattresses, stoves, water containers, soap, body wash, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant and more. All donations from Fat Joe & Friends' Relief For Haiti will go straight to the Food For The Poor.
