YB is an Arkansas-born artist whose evocative music expresses his love for God while painting vivid pictures of his life and the obstacles he overcame. He recently released a successful project called ‘WINGS OF AN ANGEL [Deluxe]’, and he quickly followed this release up with ‘JUDAS’, a poignant 3-song offering that contains both smooth R&B sounds as well as banging, crisp hip-hop sonics.
The project opens with “HEART ON MY SLEEVE”, which provides an atmospheric, airy soundscape as YB delivers memorable vocals as he injects his verses with melodic, R&B influences. Next, “ICE COLD” transitions into a harder, booming hip-hop style with clean percussion, ominous keys, and booming 808s. YB provides a highlight vocally with potent, sharply-crafted verses that match the energizing feel of the instrumental. Lastly, “YOU DON’T KNOW” provides a strong closer with textural, wide-ranging synths laid out atop infectious percussion, with YB delivering vocals that immerse the listener in the song’s elegant feel.
