Yaya Bey - Remember Your North Star
Jun 22, 2022
80
On a hugely satisfying LP, Yaya dances precisely between a lo-fi mixtape and shoomping R&B. The light vocals and delicate production might sink into one another were it not for a sharpness to the writing; especially in its explicit moments, Bey’s lyrics split through the seamless beats with a bite. ‘RYNS’ is not content with simply being an amiable, slick record and pushes comfortably forward without sacrificing an ounce of smoothness. In the reggae, R&B, and soul departments, Bey is working to full capacity with an infectious ease. It is the ease that comprises her outward and inward healing.
