It’s been a cold winter for many of us, especially in Toronto where everything is locked up and COVID restrictions only seem to be tightening up further to kick off 2021. Last year, we were introduced to Canadian artist YaYa who really only turned to music once this pandemic made him move home from playing College Basketball in Houston. With his initial love being temporarily taken away from him, YaYa took matters into his own hands with his impressive debut “Change” that we covered last year. This dark R&B cut was only an introduction to what YaYa is capable of, to cap off one of the wildest years in history he blessed us with his second single titled “Ease The Pain” which shows a more lyrical use of his silky smooth vocals. While his catalog may not be deep, there’s no denying the raw talent he possesses.
YaYa’s voice is truly remarkable, each track he drops he is proving he is ready to become a household name in his city and beyond. With production coming from Miler and the track being engineered by Losh, this song sounds incredibly crisp as his vocals cut through a simple string pattern that’s paired with an absolutely booming 808. While “Change” was definitely a slower, more conventional R&B track, his latest showing that Yaya really is not about to be boxed in and the range in his sound. On his latest single, YaYa brings you into his world and carefully the light of the end at the tunnel he sees that continues to push him towards greatness while fighting through the pain. He may not be starting 2021 the way he anticipated this time a year ago, but YaYa has set himself up for a strong year to continue his path to stardom.
