Since his 2019 debut, the Latino pop artist YXani has garnered plenty of hype with his intrinsically evocative signature style. His latest release, Son Igual, is a downtempo RnB ballad that lets sun-kissed tones bleed into the mix as a contrast to the melancholic undercurrent that flows right through this modernist contribution to the airwaves.
Unilingual English minds may not be able to easily abstract the meaning from the Spanish lyrics, but that does little to harken the emotional intensity of the stylish and soulful release.
YXani’s latest single, Son Igual, is now available to stream on Spotify.
