We’ve been fans of bay area artist, Xiomara, since we first got wind of her bluesy “So Fresh So Clean” Outkast cover back in 2014. With her first full-length project, Seven Nineteen, dropping today, we’re amped to share the Amerigo Gazaway produced album bonus cut, “YDKJ Pt. ll”. Pieced together from a studio session with some of San Francisco’s best musicians, the producer utilized live instruments to sample and create a backdrop for Xiomara’s soulful vocals to shine.
A staple of the Bay area’s hip-hop scene, Xiomara delivers a genre defying 9 songs debut reminiscent of her influences Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, and Nina Simone among others. Download the free single #YDKJ Pt. ll above and grab the full album #SevenNineteen below.
