The club-friendly tracks on See Me are influenced as much by rap vet Chuck D as by new artists like Major Lazer and Nicki Minaj. Producer Diwon (mastermind behindShemspeed Records) skillfully blends Middle Eastern beats with clubbed-out hip-hop, giving the EP an entrancing worldly sound ready for the dance floor. Y-Love explores a variety of styles, from dance and world to pop, to express his underlying message of harmony: “Unity builds the world, all divisions destroy the world.”
Lead single “The Takeover,” featuring Jamaican dancehall artist Tj Di Hitmaker, explodes with African rhythms and clever wordplay, while “This is Unity” sends the listener on a sonic tour of the Middle East with its Moroccan melodies and Hebrew chorus. The title track features, pulsating rhythm and surreal vocals from upcoming superstar Ido Z. It is followed by “Move On,” the pop hit that will have Young Moneyfans wanting more.
