Yung L And Wizkid Are The Best Of Both Worlds On ‘Eve Bounce’ Remix

Posted on

Part of a group of young musicians diversifying Nigerian music, Yung L made a concerted effort to document his artistic growth with the release of Juice and Zimm, his 2020 extended play teeming with soulfully-distilled riddims and ear-worms cut in his distinct mellow patois meets neo-rock cadence that ultimately reads like a confessional. Songs like No Worries, Island Thing, Too Much, and Eve Bounce flowed in the overarching honesty-laden trajectory of the project. Now, building on the momentum of Juice and Zimm, Yung L is putting out a T.U.C produced remix for Eve Bounce, featuring none other than, Wizkid, whose attention he has been gunning for on social media since the latter praised the record.

On the remix, the glinting sounds that open the original song are thickened to allow Yung L to lay a typical emotive verse over the soft thrumming beat. His ode to the muse is tinged with attraction and want, rightly explaining his desires. By the time Wizkid gets to splash his vocals on the song, the ambiance is slowed down for a markedly refined expression of interest that allows dancehall and Afrobeat to find a spot of confluence without watering down their elements.
