YCEE – Abeg
Ycee memorialises the differing phases of a blossoming romance with focused reflection. Eschewing the stylistic pluralism that defined 2019’s Ycee Vs Zaheer, the Afro-fusion star settles on a minimalist pairing of neo-R&B and Afrobeats influences that complement his breezy lyrics, creating an immersive universe built around electro-influenced beats (“Abeg”) and smoky drums (“Anymore”).
‘Love Drunk’ is a 7-track album which details his storytelling with pointed clarity, pondering forgiveness on “My Ways” while gently riding the smooth waves of “Intentionally” to promise total devotion to a romantic interest and celebrating the warmth of love with a funky essence on “West Indies”. The mood here grows more intense, giving way to the braggadocious confidence of “Nu Riddim” and a sweltering reunion between Ycee and Patoranking (“Aunty Lovina”) that closes out the project. Ycee’s soothing voice is at its most urgent, guiding a sonic odyssey that meanders between the grieving ache of heartbreak, the lonesome anxieties of separation and, ultimately, the bliss of reconciliation.
Coming off Ycee’s latest studio album, ‘Love Drunk‘ is this well-crafted song titled ‘Abeg’.
