Fuck Yo Feelings
Loma Vista Recordings
Robert Glasper, legendary genre-bending, and multiple Grammy and Emmy-winning artist and producer, has released his newest project Fuck Yo Feelings, a collaboration with such top-tier standout artists and collaborators as Yasiin Bey, Herbie Hancock, Andra Day, YBN Cordae, Terrace Martin, Baby Rose, Bilal, Buddy, Denzel Curry, Mick Jenicks, SiR, Rapsody and more.
Fuck Yo Feelings’ opener, “Intro”, gives insight to the rest of release, often repeating “fuck yo feelings”. The bare beat in the background gives an abstract, imaginative feel that sets the tone for the whole project.
“Aah Woah” is a soulful, motivational, and inspiring piece, that is also quite contemplative.“Not a failure, just an alternate to success/Your perspective is weakened by emotion” hits home as listeners can relate to this at any point in their life. The distant vocals make listeners feel as if they are attending a motivational speech.
Fuck Yo Feelings is for those who appreciate complexity and enjoy the imagery of abstract art. Its fragmented layers are met somewhere in the middle, and fuse with soul and experimental harmonies, touching upon jazz and R&B. It can be difficult to follow at times; however, it has a calming nature that makes one contemplative and inspired.
