What are some challenges you find yourself enduring in the creation of a song?
Some of the challenges I face during my writing process is making my story more general so EVERYONE scan relate to it and not just myself.
Tell us about “I Miss U Grace” and the meaning behind it?
“i miss U grace” was really inspired by a girl named Grace. Looking back on our relationship I now see it was very lustful and lacking in trust which is explained in the first verse. In the second verse it starts with “Shorty wanna rock with me now that I am bossed up” and that’s a very general and true statement. Everyone wants to come back in your life when you start making moves and that’s when you see true colors.
What inspired you to write “I Miss U Grace” ?
Again, my inspiration for the song was a real relationship with a girl named Grace. The first verse is looking back on the relationship and the second verse covers the current relationship and her trying to be friends ans ignore all the lost love now my clout is up a little.
How does the title of the song reflect the theme of the lyrics?
The lyrics relate to the title in the sense it’s a reflection of the relationship. “Dancing on the city lights, looking at your eyes, and we’re loving on the fact that we’re ignoring all the lost love” is really a deep way of saying “I miss you.” because if we’re hanging out now, I obviously miss it.
What’s next for you, Yung Kaye?
Honestly when I think about what’s next for me I like to picture 100k streams across all platforms and maybe label interest. I am very new to the industry and have a TON of improvements to act upon, I know this year, 2019 will be a huge year for me as an artist. I just hope to pick up forward momentum and be steady growing. I have a show in LA in 5/16 so that could also be an opportunity for me.
