R&B NEWCOMER YAS VW SHARES DEBUT SINGLE “WEKANESS”

R&B SINGER YAS VW SHARES HER SOARING DEBUT SINGLE 'WEAKNESS'

UK songwriter Yas VW steps into the forefront with her contemporary take
on R&B, revealing her debut single ‘Weakness’ set for release Friday 25 th
September.

Describing her sound as Jhene Aiko meets young Janet Jackson, the 21-
year-old artist paints pictures with her music, telling honest stories of young
love, from both her own unique experiences and observing close personal
relationships. “‘Weaknesses’ is a song that focuses on the brokenness of a
person I love” she states, “their perspective on our relationship is now guided
by their fear of possibly being hurt again and in this song I am telling them I
can bring them back to strength if they let their guard down.”

Growing up in London, Yas VW AKA Yasmine Vaughan-Williams was
raised on a musical diet of 80s and 90s R&B and cites her early influences as
greats such as Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Brandy, Mya and
Aaliyah. Having learned the guitar and piano at a young age – as well as
dancing – her creative flair was obvious and led her to perform locally at
festivals and gigs around the city. Although still very much in the early stage of
her career, Yas has already played in some historic venues such as The Ritzy
and Royal Festival Hall in South Bank and has worked with some of the
best creative minds in the business including singer-songwriter Sons of
Sonix (Ty Dolla Sign, Trey Songz), You Know Who (Chris Brown,
Gashi), and Jason Julian (Bibi Bourelli, Stefflon Don).
