Billie Eilish certainly didn’t claim ‘Bad Guy’ as a title, but she made it hard for any other artists to make it their own. Up and coming RnB artist YXL AYO soulfully succeeded with their 2020 release.
Bad Guy is a return to form for YXL AYO. But this time, with producer Super Beats on side, he’s cooked up a melodic aural storm which the airwaves simply can’t ignore.
The transfixing grooving rhythms easily distinguish themselves as superior from the rest while YXL AYO will remind you why you fell in love with RnB in the first place with their vocals; the unfiltered and indulgent romanticism which you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.
