Yoshi Flower comes back with the latest track “Validation”, out now on Rock Mafia/Interscope Records. Earlier this year Paper Magazine named Yoshi Flower as one of their 100 names worth getting to know in advance. Check out the video shot in Southern California, HERE
The up-tempo, electronic/trap tune begins with Yoshi delicately singing “you’re so beautiful to me, can’t you see,” however, the song is not as sweet as his voice sounds. His lyrics debate the constant feeling we seek out more than ever in the era of social media – “validation.” Although the internet allows us to easily connect with others and access endless information, the dark side can be unsettling. Yoshi goes on to sing “I just spent a ticket on these new dress clothes, you’re not impressed though…just searching for validation…” The nostalgic visual, directed by Alex McDonnell, serves as a metaphor for how everything comes full circle. We’re all on a constant ride of wanting acceptance from one another. Yoshi ends the track the way he began, singing, “but you don’t need no validation. Baby ‘cause, you’re so beautiful to me, can’t you see.”
Last year Yoshi Flower signed to Interscope Records, released his debut mixtape titled, American Raver, toured with blackbear, Elohim, SG Lewis and opened for Dua Lipa. This year, he played his first 5-city headline tour, a string of showcases at SXSW and just last week, wrapped up a sold-out tour opening for K-Rap group, Epik High. Additionally, he released “Dirty Water,” which premiered on HYPEBEAST and led to L’Officiel calling the track a “demonstrative of Flower’s ability to transcend multiple genres of music, as he continues to elevate his eclectic sound by blending hip hop with electronic-pop, creating music that is not only of the moment but is uniquely his.” Yoshi continues to work on new music and is set to play Lollapalooza in August.
