YUNGTREY has a nifty little production on his hands with “Made The Love.” Recently the pop world got hooked on an easy-going Island sound typified by Rhianna’s forays towards reggae and furthered by the Latino flow of J Balvin and Willy William’s “Mi Gente.” If you take some of that energy and drop it down to a pop-soul lilt with a trap off-ramp, you’ll have an idea of the realm in which this song exists.
It’s by rapper and songwriter Anthony Dumas, who hails from Houston, Texas. He only recently (April 2018) started dropping tracks on his SoundCloud. “Made The Love” has the ultra-crisp programmed drums, what sounds like subtle auto-tune and just a hint of a reverbed vocal layer. It sounds more sleek than the typical Instagram-hip-hop fare, but just as bold. It’s bangin’ like that girl you’re going to meet at the beach, tasty like the apple pie your boy hooked you up with at no charge, satisfying like how you thought the City towed your car but it turns out you just didn’t see it there. It’s music where you look stone cold on the outside, but you’re smiling deep down. And you can’t wait to see her.

Hey there! Great to chat with you. Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Well I go by the name of Yungtrey, but you an just call me trey.
Can you give us a brief history of your musical career?
I’ve been singing and writing sons since the age of 6 and I started rapping and recording sons at 11 years old. Then I started to drop songs on SoundCloud in April of last year.
How did you come up with your name? Is there a meaning behind it?
Trey is my middle name and I just added yung in front of it to give it that rapper appeal.
Do you write your own music? Can you tell us a bit about your writing style?
Yes I write all of my music. I like to listen to the instrumental of a track before I write so I can make up a flow and catchy melody. I usually think of a catchy hook then write my verse afterwards.
We’re really into your new song Made The Love! Can you tell us a bit about it?
Well in my opinion I feel like made the love is the best song I’ve made till this day. It’s a typical love song for everyone to vibe to. The song was made for my girlfriend.
