Yung L shares details for sophomore LP, ‘Yaadman Kingsize’

Featuring guest appearances from Wizkid, Shank, Seun Kuti & more

For the second year in a row, Yung L has decided to hit the ground running in the early days when the music industry is traditionally just warming up. In January 2020, he released ‘Juice & Zimm’, a 7-song tape which he rolled out as a “playlist” project. In addition to flaunting his already established abilities at mashing afropop and dancehall into catchy songs, the tape also included pan-African guest features, including Tanzanian singer Vanessa Mdee, Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie and Nigeria’s Tay Iwar.

To start off 2021, the singer has announced and shared the details for his sophomore album, ‘Yaadman Kingsize’. The follow-up to his well-received 2017 debut, ‘Better Late than Never’, is set to drop on January 29th. It will comprise eleven tracks, including “Operator” released last December, and the Wizkid-assisted remix of “Eve Bounce” off ‘Juice & Zimm’, which dropped back in May. The album will feature guest appearances from Afrobeat scion Seun Kuti, legendary Nigerian singer Shank, British-Tanzanian artist Tiggs Da Author, Sudanese singer/producer Sammany Hajo, and more.

In the Instagram post announcing the album, Yung L called ‘Yaadman Kingsize’ his “Best project yet”, drumming up our expectations considering how formidable his debut LP and follow-up projects have been. You can pre-order the project here while we await its drop later this month.
