JYellowL capped off what was globally an unpredictable and challenging year in 2020 with his critically-acclaimed debut album 2020 D|vision, which was nominated for Irish album of the year 2020 at the RTÉ Choice Music Prize Awards and debuted at number 2 on the official iTunes album charts as well as number 1 in the hiphop category.
The album served as a timely soundtrack and breath of fresh air for an overwhelming year, manifesting JyellowL’s intention to put Irish rap on the map as a force to be reckoned with on a global front. The Irish Times highlighted the “clever word play and precocious wisdom” of JYellowL’s 2020 D|vision, while Hotpress magazine heralded it as a body of work that “consistently hits the mark” and others described the album as reminiscent of P.M Dawn and The streets.
JyellowL emerged into the changing world of 2021 with a string of new releases and collaborations coming to fruition.
The next phase in his blisteringly fast rise is envisioned as ‘Yellowszn’. Listeners can expect a series of EP’s that JYellowL is calling ‘shades of yellow’ and which will reveal and explore new sides to him musically that haven’t been shown before.
The horizon is limitless for an artist like JYellowL who continues to unleash music that connects a multiplicity of origins and cutting-edge collaborations, while shaping his own distinct and undeniable voice.
