Yaya Bey Closes Out The Year With Double Single

Listen to 'the evidence' and 'crying through my teeth'...

New York artist Yaya Bey has shared dual single, ‘the evidence’ and ‘crying through my teeth’, via Big Dada.

Teasing a forthcoming project in the new year, both songs are harmonically lush scores to a turbulent period for the singer, one marked by transitions, grief and financial strife. On ‘the evidence’ and the organ-infused ‘crying through my teeth’, Bey’s lyrics diarise her emotional dissonance without ever devolving into self-loathing.

These songs continue the restorative premise of last year’s debut album ‘Remember Your North Star’ and follow-up EP ‘exodus the north star’, artfully, and tenderly, projecting a vision of hope rooted in the communal welfare of black women.

Tune in now.
