How would you describe your latest pop obsession? Have you been finding any good songs or need a new, catchy rhythm to recommend to your friends? Don’t look any further. We have YAZ for you! She may look familiar to you from TikTok, but the British singer/songwriter is here to stay! She just released her latest single called ‘Anymore,’ and it has left us with a craving for more!
Get To Know YAZ
YAZ started posting lifestyle and makeup videos on her YouTube channel back in 2016, so looking back at her content is a fun time capsule! She keeps making these videos while also adding her music-related content for fans to enjoy. Our favorite videos from her channel are her annual birthday vlogs. She has been filming them ever since she turned 14, and they truly show her growth as a YouTuber. We can’t wait to enjoy her next vlogs!
En-route To Stardom: ‘Mr Valentine’ & TikTok
‘Mr Valentine,’ YAZ’s debut single, was a hit! The single goes through the process of falling head over heels for someone. YAZ got inspired from the first time she met her boyfriend, and since his middle name is Valentine, it couldn’t have been more fitting! She was in charge of directing the music video for the track, showing some cute shots of Paris that will make you fall in love (with the city and with the song, of course).
The song became viral on TikTok, becoming the sound of thousands of videos on the platform and over 4.5 million views on #mrvalentine. In order to celebrate her first huge milestone as a music artist, YAZ posted a special lyric video with some of the TikTok videos that featured her song and gave credit to the creators. The song now has over 2 million streams on Spotify and three different remixes. Such a successful debut!
‘Anymore:’ Your Next Favorite Pop Song
The electronic, catchy beat surrounded by YAZ’s vocals on her latest single truly check all of our boxes! This song is the opposite of what ‘Mr Valentine’ tried to represent. ‘Anymore’ is about the feeling of letting go. The feeling of passing by your old favorite spots where you used to meet your favorite person while remembering those happy memories, but feeling empty as they aren’t next to you, well… anymore.
The music video truly puts these words into clips that capture the fun times and the lonely moments, making a perfect connection with the lyrics. The colors and the overall aesthetic are so amazing and so fresh! Our favorite part of it has to be the pre-chorus. During this part of the song, we can see YAZ standing at a bus stop, making a lyric association with the lines “I’m standing in your street, waiting by the bus stop, where we used to meet…” So, so good!
