YUNGEN RELEASES BRAND NEW ‘PROJECT PURPLE’
Platinum-selling, rap hit-maker Yungen is back with his first project in four and a half years: ‘Project Purple’.
Strong collaborations from both Dappy and Angel feature on the project, as well as songs produced by the talented ADP, Jay Weathers, G.A. and E.Y.
Featuring the previously released, hypnotic track ‘Pricey’ (currently sitting on over 2million Spotify streams), this project showcases both Yungen’s strong rap skills and his softer, more meaningful side.
Yungen said: “I’ve called this release ‘Project Purple’ following on from my previous coloured projects ‘Project Black & Red’. I use colours to describe the mood of the project. ‘Purple’ is all about my growth, which is packed with the wisdom, ambition, devotion & peace I have gained in the last 4 years.”
2017 was a huge year for him. He released the platinum selling single ‘Bestie’ featuring Yxng Bane, which marked his first UK Top 10. It has scored over 35 million views on YouTube to date, currently boasts over 54 million streams on Spotify and received huge radio support from the likes of Radio1, 1Xtra and Capital.
The South London rapper also had a whirlwind of a summer. From performing at this year’s Capital Summer Time Ball, to showcasing his collaboration ‘Intimate’ live in Ibiza with Craig David. 2018 also saw Yungen release the single ‘Mind On It’, featuring Jess Glynne and produced by his long term collaborator ADP.
Yungen’s previous project ‘Project Black and Red’ featured Wretch 32, Krept & Konan and Sneakbo. It saw him nominated for ‘Best Newcomer’ at the MOBO Award’s, and resulted in him being shortlisted on 1Xtra’s ‘One To Watch’ List.
‘Purple’ truly showcases the fantastic success the South-London rapper has had so far. From his early days of freestyling on SBTV, Link Up and GRM, to now having over 1.2 million monthly listeners on Spotify, Yungen is maintaining his domination of UK rap’s commercial space with his distinctive style and unmissable wordplay. Yungen really is gearing up for what looks like his most successful year yet.
