Arkansas-bred artist YB has shared a new EP called ‘JUDAS’, fresh off the release of his recent successful album ‘WINGS OF AN ANGEL [Deluxe]’. An engaging set of 3 songs that continues to explore YB’s characteristically powerful and uplifting sound, ‘JUDAS’ presents a variety of soundscapes including smooth R&B and hard-hitting hip-hop, giving the listener a dynamic journey full of potent moments. He flexes his skills as both a singer and rapper here as well, transitioning seamlessly between catchy melodies and heavy, captivating flows.
“HEART ON MY SLEEVE” presents a diverse, colourful opener that brings in an atmospheric, R&B tinged backdrop for YB’s memorable vocals. “ICE COLD” turns up the energy in a gripping manner with appropriately icy keys, slapping percussion, and booming 808s. YB’s verses are electrifying, as he weaves together flexible rhyme patterns with ease. Lastly, closer “YOU DON’T KNOW” lays down powerful, soaring synths and a driving rhythm section that provides a solid foundation for YB’s sharply-crafted verses.
‘JUDAS’ makes for a strong offering from the rising Arkansas artist, who recently released his full-length project ‘WINGS OF AN ANGEL [Deluxe]’, and continues to move at a fast pace with the release of the engaging ‘JUDAS’.
