B Young’s reputation as one of the UK’s most gifted singer-songwriters continues to grow with a slew of hit songs including Jumanji, Been Wavey, 079Me, Gucci Demon and Wine.
Last year he dropped his debut album Differences, which reflects the melodic rapper’s signature blend of Dancehall, R&B, Hip Hop, Afrobeat and Bashment with his unforgettable hooks. Standout tracks include Come Alive, Lightwork and Justin Bieber.
Of Turkish Cypriot heritage and hailing from Hackney, in multi-cultural East London, the 27-year-old has chalked up over 200 million streams, and more than 2 million single sales.
As fans in Britain and abroad are increasingly finding out, B Young remains as captivating on stage as he is in the studio.
To date, he has performed over 400 live shows, including festivals such as Wireless, Kultureland in Toronto, Afronation, Fresh Island, Asian Network live and the One Africa Show in Wembley Arena. He sold out his first UK tour in 2021 and will be headlining the Tokyo World Festival later this month.
He returns to London at the end of September, where he will be playing at the capital’s hippest new venue HERE, which is located four stories beneath Soho’s world-famous Denmark Street in Central London.
Part of Outernet London, a commercial and residential development project more than ten years in the making, HERE describes itself as the “first venue to be purpose built in Central London since the 1940s.”
The 2,000 capacity, 25,000-square-foot space will host live gigs and club nights. You can be among the first to sample HERE by going to see B Young, who plays there on 28 September – full details below.
