Sex, drugs, break-ups, and money. Now-a-days, that’s all we hear on the radio. Rarely we get that one song from an artists that’s so different, yet the artist cannot keep up with it. They fall back into the mainstream pattern.
Enter Domnic Harrison a 21 year-old musician from Doncaster, UK. With the stage name Yungblud, he entertains thousands around the globe with his intriguing sound and style. With his blend of hip hop, alt-rock, ska, and pop. Yungblud is a storm of his own, and he’s only getting started.
His sound isn’t the only thing drawing fans in. His words are just as captivating. Yungblud is known for being very open about his mental health and struggles that he faces. With songs like “Medication”, “Loner”, and the newly released “Parents” the rapper holds nothing back. Yungblud takes music to another level, tackling the topics of Depression, Anxiety, Bi-Polar Disorder, and Paranoia. With inspirations like Lady Gaga, Marilyn Manson, and Eminem, it’s no surprise that the young rapper speaks whatever is on his mind.
Yungblud is the type of artist that will be featured on both Pop Top-40 radio as well as Alt-Rock radio, which is rare for artists. His collaboration with Pop-Star Halsey, 11 minutes, put him on the map in mainstream radio. Since then, he has blown up. He recently released a song “I think I’m Okay” in collaboration with fellow rapper MGK and the drummer of Blink-182, Travis Barker. This song is expected to crush alt-radio numbers sending him cross platform.
Other than his multi-genre music, Yungblud expresses himself through his unique style. With a Masculine Androgyny, Yungblud can rock anything from a dress to a suit and no one dares to question it. His music and style together makes seeing him an experience in its own.
With an expected album later this year and a current tour, Yungblud is a force to be reckoned with.
