Taken from his forthcoming project Seasons Change Feelings Change early next year, today’s (and final) premiere for Yahya’s new single “Everything You Want”.
Defying convention at every step, Ahmed Yahya pulls inspiration from many corners of the musical spectrum as well as personal experience, his blend of unorthodox heritage and innovation peel back ever more layers and “Everything You Want” emerges as no exception. Taking a soft punk rock aesthetic with playful guitar licks and heavy-set drums, YAHYA contrasts bold, gritty vocals as he expresses the frustration of growing apart from relationships yet having a bond too deep to simply throw away. YAHYA echoes “I love you too much just to leave, she got a hold on me” – a never-ending battle to relight the desire for love.
Growing up in the United States, YAHYA naturally gravitated towards Hip-Hop but developing his sound using cuts from trap, R&B and rock, his 2020 hit project Is It Too Late To Miss You showcased a clear flair for diversity in his vocals and instrumentals.
