Discovery: Ya Minko

Ya Minko is a bi-lingual African R&B artist whose new track Pacing has a clear message in any language.

By Graeme Smith

Pacing is about finding the strength and patience to maintain a long distance relationship. Ya Minko tells the story in both English and French which adds a fresh element to a familiar contemporary R&B style. The chorus, with its marching beat, is killer too and hooks you into the track.

Ya Minko was born in Gabon and is now based out of Washington D.C. Pacing is an astonishing introduction to his music for me and I look forward to hearing more. Check it out for yourself below.
