Hey there, thoughts on Yalee’s “Momma Sorrows” Video?


Ohio-born rapper, Yalee, has returned with a brand new video for his single, “Momma Sorrows,” which was premiered today with HipHop Vibe. The video features a guest appearance from Yalee’s own mother, who also provides featured vocals on the single. Speaking on the experience, Yalee says, “My mother on a song like this with me was beyond a blessing and to speak on a topic about what my generation is facing was needed. Too many mothers losing children they’ve birthed to hate.”

The song can be found on Yalee’s debut album, 1v1 You vs the World, which is available now across all digital streaming platforms.

“To me there’s a difference between making just good music and making music that speaks to people. Conceptually when putting this album together, I wanted my listeners to realize and relate to real life issues and know that they are not alone; with bullying, being hated on, being disregarded, feelings of suicide, feelings of keeping deep personal secrets locked up inside because nobody cares, or would ever understand.” – Yalee

The album Lyrics written 100% by Yalee and every song was produced, mixed, engineered and mastered by Tjamz.

Yalee lived in Dayton, Ohio until he was 19-years old when he decided to move to the east coast to pursue his dream in music.  Yalee was born in to a generation of musical talents from great grandparents, grandparents and his parents.  His mother who sings in a gospel group known as The Ditto Girl’s has opened up for national artists such as Marvin Sapp and Rance Allen.  His father, a rapper, shared a stage with the late great Tupac Shakur in the early 90’s.

Able to jump between R&B and hip-hop in a Chris Brown style, singer, songwriter, and performer Yalee launched his career with Remember My Name, a mixtape that featured a cover of Rihanna’s hit “Stay.” A year later, the mixtape track “Pretty Girl Dance” was released as a single, while 2015 saw the arrival of “Pretty Girl Dance, Pt. 2,” featuring Fetty Wap on the remix. Subsequent singles “Kick Up & “Friends with Benefits” arrived in 2016, with the latter two also appearing on Yalee’s 2017 EP, 10 Hours Away: You Was Never wit Me Sleepin in My Buick.

Yalee released his first debut album August of 2019 with hit songs like, “Mommas Sorrows”, a song that expresses how senseless killings are on the rise and encourages his generation to find love, respect and to walk in the light.  His heartfelt “I Miss You” track is a tribute to his late grandmother who battled with cancer and her life was cut short by a tragedy. “Fake Smiles” has taken his listeners by storm as it is a universal song that is relatable to all generations, cultures and races.  This song speaks about needing a healing from the toxic secrets kept inside because we feel like nobody care, understands or that we are in our predicament alone.  These and other tracks carry a positive message to find healing, compassion and love for our fellow man and to find self-love.  Yalee’s 1V1 You vs the World album speaks to everyone everywhere in the world.
