Although his TrapHouse Jodeci project was scrapped, Indiana-to-California artist Y.E. Ali has steadily been working on its replacement project Private Suite for quite some time now. Following a variety of loose offerings (“Thigh Kisser,” “Cashin’ Out“), the musician formally reveals the first single from that project, “Used To.”
Featuring Atlanta upstart Kevin Pollari and produced by Toronto’s Burd & Keyz (Tory Lanez, SonReal), the song follows in the same trend of the recent “alternative” sound of R&B that artists like Bryson Tiller and Tory skate in with the greatest of ease, but wit ha style that’s distinctively Y.E. While there’s not timetable for the release of Private Suite, Y.E. Ali delivers a song worthy of holding fans over until its release.
