Meet Portland’s very own “R&B prodigy with a taste for real-world honesty”
TYuS has been on the scene for about a year or so, generating a nonstop fan-base all while releasing various loose singles . He’s reached just about 78K followers on Soundcloud and is ready to hit the ground running with his new EP, “Never Forget.”
After weeks of promotion back in October, the fast-rising prodigy shared an early stream of his début project, “Never Forget,” before it finally went live on iTunes .
TYuS’s “Never Forget” EP gives us 9 total tracks with two features; Valentino Lucas and Cassow. We meet V. Lucas on track 5, “Never Forget,” and fellow Portland talent Cassow right after on, “Between Us.”
“Stay,” is by far my absolute favorite track! It gives me this unforgettable high school, puppy love vibe. Nostalgia, to say the least. The mixup of this track encompasses everything needed to make an R&B love song a hit.
I also thoroughly enjoy “Faye,” and “Shapes & Sizes.” With just one full listen of this EP, I was immediately hooked and humming along to certain parts of each song my next time through.
Seriously, it’s that good!
This EP has that unconscious, head bob power to it. TYuS gives me a little TyDolla$ mixed with Chris Brown, Bryson Tiller and Partynextdoor; all amazing artists and equally unique in their own ways. For TYuS to be able to recreate the sounds and techniques of each of these artists all while putting his own spin on it and making it his, is super dope!
TYuS has definitely mastered one of many ways to bring life to an art many people feel has died.
I can’t wait to see what else TYuS has in store for the R&B world.
