INFO: “The Takeover,” is the lead single from the forthcoming Y-Love LP. The song explodes with African rhythms and clever wordplay, featuring Jamaican dancehall artist Tj Di Hitmaker, and super star comedian/actor, Andy Milonakis (MTV/Jimmy Kimmel). The influence of the street is palpable as influences by new artists like Major Lazer and Nicki Minaj combine seamlessly with classic hiphop wordplay from Y-Love. Producer Diwon (mastermind behind Shemspeed Records) skillfully blends Middle Eastern beats with clubbed-out hip-hop, giving the record an entrancing worldly sound ready for the dance floor. Y-Love explores a variety of styles, from dance and world to pop, to express his underlying message of harmony: “Unity builds the world, all divisions destroy the world.” The Takeover music video is the first collaboration by these artists and lets the fans really feel like they are right there with the artists, it’s up close and in your face and the video editing takes a spastic ‘dj scratch and blend’ style creating an ADHD reggae hip pop video destined to motivate the masses.
