The Transition 2: Bright Lights, Big City – YONAS


As promised, YONAS released his new, highly anticipated mixtape, The Transition 2: Bright Lights, Big City, today. The project really represents his progression as an artist from his beginnings as a more strict lyricist to a much more versatile rapper who can get on almost any type of track. The Transition 2 sees YONAS tackle fun songs with upbeat production while still making the lyrical, inspirational tracks that longtime fans can appreciate. Standout tracks include the Moosh & Twist-assisted Roller Coaster, Die Young (Freestyle), and Never Let You Down. You can check also out the previously released music video for one of the project’s singles, Girls of Summer, here. Overall, this is a great new effort from YONAS. Although this summer includes releases from J. Cole, Wale, Kanye West, and Jay-Z, YONAS definitely has a project that many, many fans will have on repeat all summer long.

Pocket Full of Dreams – YONAS


YONAS released this new song today entitled Pocket Full of Dreams. The track is really upbeat, and has summer anthem written all over it. I wouldn’t really call this strictly a rap song, as YONAS sings a lot and the beat feels like a mash-up of a few different genres. Overall, I think it shows YONAS’s versatility and broad appeal as an artist. He really has something for everyone, especially on this song, and all of you should check it out below. Pocket Full of Dreams should appear on YONAS’s upcoming album, The Transition 2: Bright Lights, Big City, which is slated for release on June 25.
