Rich Brian has returned.
The Indonesian-born, Los Angeles-based 88rising rapper has unveiled 'Yellow', his first release since 2018's Amen, and the standalone single, 'Watch Out'. Right off the bat, it's apparent that 'Yellow' marks the dawn of a new era for Brian, showcasing his maturity since the release Amen. It's an extremely creative piece, with its piano-led melodies, and at times choir-esque sections and easily stands out from the rest of Brian's discography.
The production on the track, led by famed producer Bekon, is astonishing to say the least, with its layers of classical and operatic music that force listeners to re-visit the track, and Brian's past releases, making them take his work more seriously.
Rich Brian may have started off as a meme, but he's bloomed into a legitimate musician with a bright future ahead of him. If his next record is anything like 'Yellow', expect fireworks.
