Yabou – Gone To Waste


Yabou is a singer/songwriter who made his professional solo recording debut in 2018 with the single “Miss You.” That track introduced a talented young artist from Stuttgart, Germany with a genre-bending sound and a knack for writing hit songs. That first single currently has over 280K spins on Spotify. He followed in 2019 with “No Bad Days,” a song that now counts its streaming numbers in the millions.

A soulful singer with keen Pop sensibilities and the chops to slide smoothly through R&B slow jams Hip-hop grooves. Yabou works with producers around the world to create infectious grooves with an edgy yet mellow sound. He matches that vibe with warm vocals, memorable melodies and a cool, laid-back attitude.

“Gone to Waste” is the brand new single from Yabou, released worldwide to all major streaming services on April 22, 2022. The song is the first single from the singer’s forthcoming album. Produced by Dutch beat maker Dave Nunes, the track opens on a minimalist lo-fi groove and soft ambient keys. The singer steps to the mic and the beat drops on a funky drum and natural bass rhythm. An electric piano and a guitar join the ensemble. They lay down a smooth Jazz mood as Yabou delivers the tale of a love affair that is better off in the past.

It’s about accepting that it’s healthier to let go instead of lying to yourself and your partner to make it work somehow but also about breaking free/moving on in life.
