Described as a soothing mid-tempo dancehall tune, WYD is the latest from rising star Royal Blu. WYD is produced by Cobessssss who is credited for his work with international star Popcaan. It combines the classic ’90s dancehall drums with elements of pop, further underscoring the newest sounds emerging from Jamaica. WYD is a subtle reminder to ‘go with the flow’ in potentially romantic situations.
“Sometimes you’re in a relationship and it ends up becoming something more,” Blu said. “The track acknowledges how easy those interactions can blossom into being official without the added pressure.”
Fresh off the release of the visuals for his single Hype, Royal Blu continues to make his mark on the scene as one of Jamaica’s most versatile artistes.
Royal Blu’s music varies in different genres, moods, and emotions. You’ll find that his sound is a big fusion of what is relevant and at the forefront of modern music, mixed with his Jamaican accent and delivery. His songs can tend to have a calming tone, with thought-provoking lyrical content, aligned with smooth melodies effortlessly flowing over a relaxing instrumental. His goal is to properly express and address the issues that he and his generation face locally and on a global scale. Whether it be on record or on stage, his aim is to infuse live music and computerized sounds to artistically deliver concepts in the music.
He is currently working with popular producer J.L.L (credited for work with Chronixx, Sevana, Jaz Elise, and more) to compose his sophomore album, slated for release this year.
WYD is available now via all digital streaming platforms and is being released by LA-based label, Delicious Vinyl Island.
