Though this is the singer’s Booth debut as a headliner, K-Young has amassed considerable reader acclaim for his hook vocals on Nipsey Hussle‘s Roll The Windows Up, Yung Berg‘s With You, and Hot Dollar‘s All Night Long. Sent to radio last week, K-Young’s latest solo single finds him searching for Summer Love with whom he can enjoy all his favorite warm-weather pastimes, from beach cruising, to barbecue picnics, to simply basking in the bright sunshine. This version, recorded for inclusion on DJ Rockstar and DJ Ill Will‘s forthcoming mixtape of the same name, features fellow West Coast native Ya Boy, who reveals that even the most hard-boiled street soldiers need love on his memorable closing verse. Complete with a synth-heavy beat by Young’s Magic Ink production team, this record is sure to get love—and-spins—throughout the remaining summer months. Though both K-Young’s debut album and Ya Boy’s The Facelift lack distribution and solid release dates, there’s a good chance that will change before August rolls around.
