On a few rare occasions, you can witness the moment when an artist shifts gear and becomes global. That is what is happening with Yebba. Her latest track, Boomerang, is a tour de force, combing silky grooves in the verses with gut-punch power in the choruses. Abigail Elizabeth Smith, (born January 16, 1995) known professionally as Yebba, is an American singer and songwriter from West Memphis, Arkansas. She first became known for a backing vocal performance on SNL performance and since then has collaborated with Sam Smith, Mark Ronson, Stormzy, Ed Sheeran, and Drake. She enters her debut album, Dawn, into a crowded field of female, high-wire divas, but somehow has found her sweet spot. With Yebba you always get the feeling that less is more. She can blast her pipes, but more often than not, she uses calmness and subtlety to hammer home her message.
