Lil Yachty dropped his fifth studio album “Let’s Start Here” on Friday (27th January) and it is now streaming on all major music platforms globally.
He had revealed earlier that his new album will be an alternative psychedelic rock-type project with live instrumentations. He is going in another direction according to him and he has high hopes for his work, describing it as “It’s alternative, It’s sick..” in an interview with Ice Box the previous year.
This album will be Yachty’s first major solo work in the new genre, although he collaborated with Kevin Parker’s Tame Impala in 2021 on a remix of “Breathe Deeper” which had positive reviews.
Lil Yachty has reportedly co-produced all the tracks on ‘Let’s Start Here’. And designed the album cover using AI.
The album cover shows an eerie corporate boardroom with a bunch of executives in suits with distorted faces.
Lil Yachty collaborates with a team of co-producers including Justin Raisen, Sad Pony, Patrick Wimberly, Jacob Portrait, Nick Hakim, Magdalena Bay, and Jam City. Vocalists include Foushée, Diana Gordon, Teezo Touchdown, and Justine Skye. Ben Goldwasser from MGMT is on the keys, Mac DeMarco and Alex G are the co-writers for the album.
‘Let’s Start Here’ partners with Lill Yachty’s own record label Concrete Records and also with Motown Records and Quality Control Music.
‘Let’s Start Here’ features 14 songs in its list and although I haven’t personally listened to the full album yet, some of the songs like “the ride” and “the BLACK Seminole” have a transient peaceful vibe that progresses into deep trippy basses which I found very enjoyable.
Reviewers from Stereogum maintain that the record is wholly indulgent and demands to be heard as a “cohesive whole”, which I’m looking forward to soon. The album peaks at the end with “REACH THE SUNSHINE” which is apparently a very impressive work.
Fans have begun showering praise on this new direction he is taking in his career with so many listeners sharing positive reviews through their social media platforms.
“Lil yachty took a risk with this album and he did not miss” according to tunesintern on Twitter. If similar reviews keep coming in, we might be looking at 2023’s first major hit record album.
