Big-name singers beware; K-Young, the rising R&B star who brought us Summer Love (Remix) back in July ‘09, is hard at work on a mixtape that he’s confident will be Better Than Your Album. How does the West Coast up-and-comer plan on toppling the titans? Judging by inaugural leak If You Only Knew, his strategy is all about catchy hooks, body-moving grooves and the occasional well-placed guest feature. Here, emcee/producer David Banner serves up a scorching brass/bass-driven beat (complete with dizzying electronic accents) as Young pays tribute to a female clubgoer with a “...billion dollar body” and some jaw-dropping dance moves to boot. On the back end, Banner steps out from behind the boards to offer a second opinion on the shawty in question, concurring with the headliner: “She’s flyer than a motherf*cker.” Better Than Your Album (Vol. 1)‘s release date has yet to be announced – keep it locked to the Booth for all the latest!
