OVO’s Baka made quite the entry with his anthem Live Up To My Name, and fittingly New York talent Abby Jasmine switches it up for her version, Long Live
The lighthearted track mirrors her personality well, it’s really one for the ladies to sing along to and the guys can appreciate. Maybe it’s ‘cos shes cute, or maybe it’s her energy, but she definitely has a standout vibe…that has garnered her a fair following, and as cool as the track is, it was a really smart decision to flip the standout line from Baka’s original, to, “he said I look like Riri when I’m smokin’ on a bean”, and no doubt girls across the globe will feel that one. Only criticism is the timing, it might have done better last summer than when the audio released, in November, but that doesn’t mean this can’t do what it needs to, and regardless..it’s a good start to the year for an act with plenty of talent and charisma to match.
She also followed up Long Live with the hype ‘Bless Yo Trap’
A strong personality and voice, the potential is most definitely there for her to cement herself as one of the more notable acts breaking through this year, and I would not be surprised (after a project under the belt), if she’s in talks for next year’s XXL Freshman cover.
