The unique musical genius, YUNG Citizen, decided to unleash a wave of his emotions, knowledge and pain onto outstanding first track ‘Browne’s Ferry” from project Formula I! Heavy beats and insightful lyrics make the tune magnetic to the ear. The heavy melody reflects all the trials and tribulations weighing on YUNG Citizen’s heart and how life felt like it was suffocating him, but he overcame it all. The project is raw, uplifting and reflective discussing
real-life issues: difficult upbringings, a young black African- American man in the education system and many more. The track is relatable and medicinal, as many fans have struggled with these issues, YUNG Citizen is the voice for the youth.
The soulful beat surrounds fans with the truth; it mirrors the diverse cultural neighbourhood he grew up in. At the beginning of the track, YUNG Citizen’s voice almost sounds distorted; YUNG Citizen’ was lost, in a constant battle with life. Still, the song progresses positively; he encourages himself, reminding fans of their destiny; every pain must come to an end and put trust in God. Music is his protection and calling.
When asked about the song, YUNG Citizen states, “Brownes Ferry” is the first track from YUNG Citizen’s newest project titled Formula. “This project is my way of figuring out how this music ‘thing’ works, and what part it will play in my life. So I thought I would take people back to the beginning, where it all started for me-Brownes Ferry.”
Behind the beat, YUNG Citizen introduces a soulful sound to incorporate his earlier memories of the diverse and cultural neighbourhood he grew up in. From a lyrical perspective, he allows his audience to take a closer look into his life and upbringing. “One of my favorite lines from this song is ‘On a swivel, looking both ways cause I’m always woke’. It’s so powerful to me because of the experiences I’ve had growing up as a child and now as an adult African American male. I’ve always felt like I have to be super aware of my surroundings, but also looking both ways so I can continue to move forward in life in a positive manner.”
YUNG Citizen continues to strive to the top and is not the artist to sleep on! He is the next bigthing! Be sure to check out for this project ‘Formula I’.
