The rising Irish rapper turns on his seduction mode for his new track, featuring the UK-Cyprus based singer.
Born of Jamaican and Nigerian parents and raised in Ireland, JyellowL’s upbringing has drawn on all three origins to create a distinct sound. The Dublin-based rapper “learned from his Jamaican grandmother how to be himself in a world that wants to force you down a particular path”. This experience has forged his lyricism and songwriting, which often delve into personal and global issues and call for political change. His debut album 2020 D|vision, which manifested JyellowL’s intention to put Irish rap on the map, was nominated for Irish album of the year at RTÉ Choice Music Prize Awards.
After a string of singles, the rapper now returns with “Appetiser”, featuring North London via Cyprus singer-songwriter Antigoni. The track, designed for dancefloors, uses a raw sample and trap percussive elements, allowing the two artists to sing and rap about dangerous flirtations and seduction. It drops on his very own newly established JYellowL Records Ltd.
