Rising talents YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB and tmdistant have joined forces to create one of the most impressive collaborations that we’ve seen so far this month.
Through an upbeat production that fuses elements of indie and alternative pop, ‘Did It My Way’ highlights to listeners the importance of embracing our self-worth. Elaborating further on the inspiration behind the track’s empowering message, YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB explains:
“I guess I’m a nice person who always tries to help others out when I can and even when I can’t sometimes, and that really hasn’t worked out in my favour. People tend to take advantage of that and I know it. I used to let it slide, until recently, when I realised that I wouldn’t get where I want in life if I didn’t put myself first. This song is about that realisation.” – YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB.
Aside from the fact that both YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB and tmdistant have already picked up widespread tastemaker praise over a relatively short space time, these two musicians have also grown significant fan bases – with each artist amassing more than 250k career streams to date.
I was immediately captivated by French artist YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB’s new single ‘Young’ purely from the lyricism. This is such a beautifully constructed slice of alt-pop that carries so much substance within the words sung.
The 21 year-old talent is not only a singer and songwriter but also a producer and mix engineer. Combined with a skill for writing impactful songs, you can expect to hear a lot more from this magnificent performer.
“‘Young’ is about feeling lost, desperate and demotivated while being told that you got your whole life ahead of yourself and that you’ll never be happier. That is definitely how I felt when I wrote it. I think I needed to hear these words, and I needed to hear them from myself specifically, because when all is crumbling around us the only person we can really rely on is ourselves. Through this song I tell myself that things are going to be fine and that I need to hold on, but I also give myself a reality check and pretty much force myself to acknowledge and even embrace my insecurities and weaknesses.”
