Youngn Lipz has announced his debut album, ‘Area Baby’
Youngn Lipz, the prodigious, APRA Award-winning RnB & Hip-Hop artist from Western Sydney has announced his debut album ‘Area Baby’, due out on the 6th of August. Since his burst onto the scene in 2019, YL has taken Australia and the world by storm with his blend of melodic Hip-Hop and street R&B. He’s achieved several platinum and gold records, and achieved co-signs from global rap heavyweights such as Ebro Dardan, Tuma Basa and Charlie Sloth. With the release of his forthcoming album, ‘Area Baby’ Youngn Lipz is set to deliver one of the most hyped and biggest local records of 2021. It’s gearing up to be a deeply autobiographical project, delivering the purest and rawest form of Western Sydney to the world.
Across 15 tracks, ‘Area Baby’ features previously released singles ‘Misunderstood’, ‘Silent’, ‘Everyday’ and ‘Say It’. It also features unreleased cut, ‘Misunderstood Pt. 2’ featuring North West London rapper M Huncho. Off the back of a string of strong and his most introspective singles to date, the project is set to be one of the diverse sounding and thematic projects to date. Our favourite so far from Youngn Lipz, ‘Broken Home’ sees the 22 year old artist at his signature best, deeply moving, honest and mature, he reflects on his upbringing and the various struggles his family faced.
On the creation of the album, he stated, “In Australia – Western Sydney in particular – ‘The Area’ is what we call our hood, our ends. This album is inspired by my life, surroundings and general come-up in this environment. Everything I’ve seen and been a part of – friends, family, the ups and downs. But this story isn’t just about the past, it’s about where I’m at now and where I’m headed, too. I hope that people listening to this project understand this is my story and there’s no other way around it. I’d want anyone that’s listening, who ever doubted themselves or doesn’t think they can go anywhere or be something, to know that as long as you believe and put in that work, you’ll get there.”
