Ycee Shares New Laidback Single, “Gold”

His second single of the year

The unceremonious end of the working relationship between Ycee and former label, Tinny Entertainment created some doubts as to the artist’s trajectory without his trusted machine. Ycee, though, has handled the split impressively, by setting up his indie platform, delivering a handful of winning guest verses, as well as dropping new music. He follows the release of rap-heavy “Balance” with a new single, “Gold”, his second single of the year. And unlike the debut, it features a laidback, pop-centric vibe synonymous with “Juice”, his biggest single till date.

Singing “there’s gold on my wrist and neck” repeatedly on the hook, Ycee uses “Gold” to reiterate the affluence he’s amassed since breaking out. His verses feature cocksure lyrics that are half-sung and half-rapped over the beat Beatsbykarma produces to the swing of dancehall and the grit of hip-hop, mixing cloudy piano chords and steely drums to create a bop.
