If your high vibe hip hop playlists aren’t hitting the same, the enlivening energy and unique lyrical depth in ShelovesYj’s latest single, WOAH, will prove to be a worthy playlist staple.
It’s so much more than your average hedonist hip hop track. While many artists use their high vibe tracks to brag about their excess and dominant personalities, there’s a far more vulnerable side to WOAH. With lines such as “every day I try to find the light, got a lot of pain inside, just gotta keep smiling because the demon will rise”, the sense of realism is resounding. And honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever connected with a hip hop in quite the same way.
At the age of just 16-years-old, the Ontario, Canada-based freestyle artist is proving to be a force to be reckoned with.
The official music video that premiered on March 6th is now available to stream via YouTube.
