Episode 235 - “Believe In You”

by Yo! Majesty

You got this.

In the mid-2000s heyday of MySpace, Yo! Majesty rose quickly to digital fame in America (they played both Coachella and South by Southwest) and abroad (they signed to U.K. label Domino Records, now home to Arctic Monkeys, Hot Chip and Animal Collective). The frenetic electro-pulse and raw carnality of their 2008 debut Futuristically Speaking...Never Be Afraid felt fresh and inspired at the time (and in many ways still does today).

The New York Times profiled Yo! Majesty alongside Santigold and Kid Sister; NME hailed them as one of America's best new acts; Spin wrote them up multiple times. Most profiles mentioned a few well-trod talking points: They were lesbians, they rapped explicitly about sex and more broadly about God, and their live shows were wild affairs that occasionally saw Jwl stripping off her top.

Now, with the upcoming release of YO! MAJESTY’s sophomore Album “Return Of The Matriarch", they will be sure to capture the rest of the world... Mature lyrics and realness is what we know Yo! Majesty for and best believe they keep it real... "Too real", says Shunda K. The Album will be an independent release and available for download and exclusive physical copies will be sold on the group's upcoming world tour.

"It's divine timing; it's the right time. Everything is falling into place for us," Shunda says. "We know the game, we have the formula down pat. So there ain't nothing to it but to do it." Stay tuned...
