Soulful vocals and dark production collide for this addicting new heat.
There is a fascinating side of pop music now, existing totally out of booming dark production and soulful autotuned vocals, born largely out of the ascensions of the OVO Crew, Travis Scott, and of course, the godfather of this sound, Kanye West. Perfect for dark nights and walking through a dead city at 3 AM, YL Vision’s latest track is smooth and brooding.
“Masterpiece” is great work from a largely unknown artist, but I am willing to bet that this anonymity will be short-lived. Hailing from Toronto, it makes sense that YL could come up very quickly, as the 6 is rapidly pumping out r&b talent. His vocals are gently strained and topped off with the perfect amount of autotune for good measure. Onlyxne’s instrumental is also an impressive feat, slowly knocking with ominous background vocals and trancey drums.
Stream “Masterpiece” here. Enjoy great work from an artist bound for stardom.
