The latest offering from Cape Town’s unique RnB singer/songwriter and producer, YesPlsNdThnkYou, is a project more than 3 years in the making. Building on his previous body of work, which comprises multiple singles and no less than four EPs, this is YPNTY’s first full length studio album.
The aptly named “Late Nights. Early Graves.” is a journey through the spectrum of overindulging in that which is pleasurable. This begins with him basking in the bravado of being at the top of his game and feeling bulletproof with the aid of sex and substances; but ultimately culminates in him drowning in the aftermath of it all.
This album is dark and daring, but it is also meant to serve as an exercise in self- reflection for anyone who can relate to having too much of a good time and then living with the consequences.
Late Nights, Early Graves officially drops tomorrow on ALL major streaming platforms. Click HERE to pre-save and you won’t even need us to remind you again.
The highly anticipated collaboration between the RnB visionary YesPlsNdThnkYou and the Hip-Hop powerhouse Mvula Drae has finally arrived.
‘Outchea’ is an introspective look at the internal struggles we all face as individuals, as artists, as human beings. It is also an ode to the unflinching spirit of persistence, even when faced with demotivation and depression.
YPNTY approaches the track with a reserved delivery in the beginning, slowly building up to a vocal crescendo by the end of his verse. Mvula Drae then elevates the song to new energetic heights with his signature rap cadence and impeccable lyricism.
The production on this track was a joint effort between YPNTY and GSoul (Aka Garth Soul). YesPlsNdThnkYou laid down the basic melody and chord progression and GSoul rounded it off with punchy drums and a thick bassline, which sits beautifully beneath the haunting synths.
The explicit album version of the track will be released on all major streaming platforms, including Spotify on the 30th of August 2019.
There is also a short film/music video releasing in September, directed by Pappa Brown Films, which beautifully compliments the song.
