Check out her new single 'fxck it then'...

Yaya Bey has signed to Big Dada and laid out plans for her new EP.

The songwriter's excellent 2020 release 'Madison Tapes' rightly won attention, and she's followed this by signing to the freshly relaunched UK stable.

Out on April 9th, new EP 'The Things I Can't Take With Me' is a stopping off point on her journey, and it's led by a brilliant new single.

Soft and soulful, the supple elements of 'fxck it then' are infused with a jazz sensibility that puts us in mind of those long romantic New York summers.

Out now, 'fxck it then' balances nimble beauty with explicit lyricism, as Yaya preens: "I'm a bad bitch..."

Morgan B. Powell directs the video, a Super 8 affair that features styling from Alexea Brown.

“The video was a true labor of love,” Yaya Bey says, describing the visuals as “an ode to hood joints.”

Tune in now.

'The Things I Can't Take With Me' EP will be released on April 9th.
