More Yasmin!

Apologies for the delay between posts. The combination of a food coma from the holiday and ridiculous amounts of school work has made it difficult to make some blog posts. I'm back, though, and will be posting more regularly (at least until finals).

Yasmin's debut single, "On My Own"

Anyway, back to business. As I posted before, I am a huge fan of new London up-and-comer Yasmin. She was amazing in Devlin's "Runaway" and now she's out with her debut single as a solo artist.

Her official music video is finally out, and I thought it best to share it here and get the word out. She's already getting some attention in the UK, so hopefully the US follows soon. This is me doing my part in spreading her sheer awesomeness.

One of the best up-and-coming young artists out of London is Yasmin. The 21-year-old has made a name for herself as a DJ, spinning for the likes of N.E.R.D., Eve and Taio Cruz. She is now making the transition to R&B/Trip hop singer/songwriter, and her voice has been heard singing the hook on Devlin's hit "Runaway."
She has now set her sights on a solo career away from the turntable, and is in the process of making her debut singing album. Off the 2011 record is her first single as a solo artist called "On My Own." The song features strong R&B influences with a touch of electronica and catchy hip-hop beat. Her lyrics are simple but thoughtful while her lovely voice conveys her message competently.
This is a solid first effort from the young Londoner, and it should get people in England and across the world to take notice. She is a real talent and seems to possess a musical ear well beyond her ears. "On My Own" is a fantastic song with great musical aesthetics that stands out from the usual Top 40 hits we hear over the radio. While questions will be raised on whether she can make a name for herself on this side of the pond, nobody can deny her talent and creativity.
