YUNGEN RELEASES 'MIND ON IT' FEATURING JESS GLYNNE
Platinum-Selling, UK Rap Hit-maker Yungen, returns with his second official single Mind On It, featuring award winning, Multi-Million Album Selling artist, Jess Glynne. Produced by Yungens long-term collaborator, ADP, the pair go back to back, capturing the songs summer essence in all its glory.
Since selling out his headline UK tour at the end of 2017, reaching Top Ten with the Yxng Bane assisted Bestie (the video now sitting on 29 million views) & performing across the world, Yungen has been locked in the studio working on new music. Revealing how that time in the studio brought about the chemistry that created Mind On It, Yungen says, “ADP, let me know he was working on a sick idea for me, so I went in the studio late that night and he’d already started the beat. I laid my verses really quick, which is always a good sign! We didn’t have the hook on it for ages because we knew it sounded potentially like the next single and we wanted it to be perfect. Then I finally got in with Jess and she absolutely nailed it straight away!”
Maintaining his domination of UK rap’s commercial space, the South Londoner showcases effortless charm and witty punch lines that drive home his maturity and rise through the ranks of the UK undergrounds hierarchy.
From grafting in his earliest freestyles on SBTV, Link Up & GRM, to now conquering the charts, being nominated for a MOBO and performing at the O2 for Jingle Bell Ball, it’s fair to say Yungen’s ambition to sit in pole position is solidified in his teaming with Jess Glynne.
With Mind On It set to take over clubs, radio and festivals across the year, Yungen smoothly delivers the line “wanna know where I’ve gone, tell ‘em that I’ve gone clear” ...and based on his last 6 months of succes, it’s hard to argue that statement.
