British-Turkish Afrobeats rapper B Young drops a brand new single “Come alive” featured along with an official video
The new single “Come alive” is a conceptual and passionate track that provides a hint of Afro-wave and dancehall combined with his indulgent and signature sound. An explosive track with a perfect summer vibe, “Come Alive” is the lead single off B Young’s forthcoming full-length debut album Differences.
B Young is best known for his breakthrough single, “Jumanji“, released via Columbia Records, which peaked at number 13 on the UK singles chart. Its follow-up, “079ME“, peaked at number 23.
Proving his ability to write and perform a timeless hook “Come Alive” is another unique display of B Young’s rich and delightful vocals, switching from skippy melodic rap to a more extensive singing style throughout the track. This dynamic approach, matched with the romantic vibe that B Young portrays, really expresses the distinctive talent at his disposal.
B Youngs declares: “browsing through YouTube and I came across the producer INQBOI, he’s very cold. This beat specifically ticked all the boxes for the perfect summer vibe. I did what I always do. Zone out in my bedroom studio, let the feelings guide the melodies and lyrics, then mix it all on the spot.” After letting his feelings guide the music he landed on the concept “about the low-key women that have a wild side to them, and really know how to enjoy and come alive when the times right.”
The video literally transports the viewer to this satisfying setting. The charming performance from B Young and additional characters, also boasts dramatic views and ideal villas.
B Young is a true pioneer for melodic rap in the UK and he is innovating once again with this stylistic track. One for the summer and a building block towards the upcoming album, Differences.
