Drilled-out versions of past hits such as Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger” (“Outside”) and Offset’s Cardi-collab “Clout” (“Rap Sheet”) appear on Young Devyn’s sophomore project.
When making her latest project, Young Devyn says she set out to tell the “story of that relatable everyday girl who is making it out. ” She put it the work to make sure her mission was accomplished. “I took my time out to just pay attention to everything from the production, the lyrics, the storyline, the tracklist— just everything to make sure that it was concise,” she says.
On Baby Goat 2, she taps into the sound of her hometown, while staying in touch with her roots and also showcasing her vocals. “Like, it's not like I'm just doing one type of sound throughout the whole project. It's just different things, but it all makes sense,” she says proudly.
It’s safe to assume that her eclectic listening habits as a child may have had an influence on the artist she is today. “I didn't really have a favorite genre growing up, because I was always exposed to so many different types of music early on like soca, pop, hiphop, reggae, even gospel,” she says.
Young Devyn’s hard work has been paying off, because more and more eyes have been on her. The likes of Nicki Minaj, Offset and The New York Times have also been peeping her game. Although she’s already gotten recognition from some of the biggest artists in music, she’s not letting it get to her head. “ I don't think that anybody owes me anything,” she says. “That is why I'm always super humbled when artists do show me love. Cause I'm never entitled or think that anybody should know me.”
