Yashi - If I Had My Way

Posted 7 years ago
Tags: Yashi , Club
Producer:
Jim Jonsin and Rico Love
Album:
Promo Single

The younger sister of defensive lineman and future NFL Hall of Fame candidate Simeon Rice, Chi-town native Yashi had originally followed the athletics path as a scholarship track & field star for the Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville Salukis.  During her junior year, however, she discovered that music was her true passion and ended up signed to her big bro’s own label,  Lucid Dream Entertainment.  On new single (and Booth debut) If I Had My Way, she teams up with hitmaking duo Jim Jonsin and Rico Love (The Greatest, Shone, Single Girl) to express her desire for a special man.  Yashi’s alto vocals will definitely draw comparisons to certain other soul songstresses (Chrisette, Jazmine, and Melanie come to mind), but Jim & Rico’s beat helps her stand out from the pack.  Whether or not she succeeds in hooking that fella, Yashi should have no trouble wooing a classic R&B fanbase.  The only question that remains is, can her big bro can pick up distribution as easily as he did sacks on the football field?
