Yungin Yu – Westbrook @yungxnyu
After local success on his single “SeaTac”, Yungin Yu drops his 4th single “Westbrook” on August 9th to SoundCloud. The single pays homage to the Houston Rocket’s newly acquired point guard, Russell Westbrook. With a mixture of melodies and autotune, Yu’s intentions for the track were a carefree, summer single that listeners could bump to. The track was produced by the up and coming producer, Dopelord Mike.
Yungin Yu is a 20-year-old artist from Seattle, WA, who came onto the local scene earlier this year. Yu began writing music at the age of 13 after listening to Chance The Rapper’s 𝘈𝘤𝘪𝘥 𝘙𝘢𝘪𝘯 mixtape. His other inspirations vary from older artists such as Elton John, Nelly, Michael Jackson, and Usher, to new wave artists like Jay Critch, PnB Rock, Bryson Tiller, and Drake. Taking from his inspirations, the style of music Yu wants to achieve is a combination of catchy melodies and lyricism. From the new wave west coast sounds accompioned by a melodic flow inspired by the east coast, Yungin Yu hopes to create his own waves in the music world.
