“I would say my style could be
described as if Adele and Kanye had a baby, and Drake was my cousin,” says Yaysh.
As brash as that statement is, the singer/rapper can back it up. One spin of her
single “Wild One” brings to mind the aforementioned superstars, with producer
R8dio setting her pop-encrusted vocal melodies and funky rap verse against a
backdrop of stuttering rhythmic patterns. The hip-hop side of her vocal delivery
might have been honed on the streets in freestyle ciphers, but “Wild One” proves
that Yaysh’s musical style is far more diverse to be pigeonholed into one
specific genre tag.
On the personality front,
Yaysh is as outspoken as her music is eclectic. “Music these days has become so
watered down and almost non-individualized,” says the Boulder, Colorado native.
“I have such a big mouth that I need somewhere to put all my vibe, my heart and
music is a huge vehicle for that.”
Now based in LA, Yaysh
explains why she wants to represent a new kind of sex symbol. “I don't look like
a model but I am sexy, and I’m going to propagate the shit out of that and my
open sexuality. I'm kind of ordinary, extra ordinary, but my soul shines so
fucking bright that my sexiness is a complete sexiness; rather than just the
flesh. I'm sexy because I know myself."
A bold balance of talent and
attitude, Yaysh is the exact musical force the pop landscape needs right now. “I
want people to feel free when they hear my music and almost a little embarrassed
or stripped cuz my shit is just real and inescapable, magnetic, and delicious.”
Music fans will get a chance to envelope themselves in Yaysh’s world when her
album drops later in 2016.
