Tyla Yaweh has released his anticipated sophomore album, Heart Full of Rage 2 today via Epic Records/London Entertainment. Along with the new album, today Tyla shared a documentary detailing his inspiring come up as well as detailing the making of the album, giving insight into the songwriting and recording process. Watch the documentary now below.
Among many highlights on Heart Full of Rage 2, he joins forces with Chris Brown on the single “City of Dreams.” Otherworldly keys wrap around glitchy claps as Tyla’s melodic verses give way to the chantable chorus, “I got one life to live, I want to live in the city of dreams, I got one night to give, I want to live in the city of dreams.” Meanwhile, Breezy shows up for the occasion, picking up the pace and flexing his instantly recognizable falsetto. Stay tuned for the official music video, coming soon.
Heart Full of Rage 2 ignites one anthem after another. Last month, he unleashed the massive “SUMMER VIBES,” one of his most magnetic and melodic singles to-date, with no shortage of energy and charisma. Elsewhere across the album’s 16 tracks, he teams up with Yung Bleu on the groove-laden “Hips Don’t Lie,” while Ty Dolla $ign pulls up with smooth West Coast flavor on “Stuck.” Elsewhere, Tyla locks into a hypnotic back-and-forth with Dej Loaf on the luminous “Lighters Up.” Then, there’s “Rockstar Nights” where he and Toosii join forces on a banger tailormade for afterparties. The album concludes on the frenetic, yet emotionally charged finale, “New York Ave.” His unpredictable flow alternates speed and cadence only to collide with an undeniable and confessional chorus. Along the way, Tommy Lee even leaves a hilarious voicemail you need to hear to believe, a call-back to Tyla’s 2020 hit single “Tommy Lee” [feat. Post Malone].
Heart Full of Rage 2 picks up where Yaweh left off on his 2019 breakout debut, Heart Full of Rage. The ten-track project notably boasted the platinum “High Right Now,” in addition to knockout collaborations with French Montana and the late PnB Rock. Since then, Yaweh has shared a slew of critical and fan-favorite anthems and has generated over a billion streams. Notably, notched his first Billboard Hot 100 hit with the platinum “Tommy Lee” [feat. Post Malone], served up the gold certified “Stuntin’ On You” [feat. DaBaby], and further collaborated with names like Wiz Khalifa, Gunna, Morray, RMR, Trippie Redd, and more. He performed to sold out arenas on tour supporting Post Malone world-wide and raged on some of the globe’s biggest festival stages, from Rolling Loud to Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, and beyond. Along the way, Yaweh has received a wide variety of critical praise, with Billboard highlighting him as being “undoubtedly on the precipice of stardom”,” NME calling him “emo-rap’s next icon” and Wall Street Journal Magazine calling him one of the “Biggest Rising Talents In Hollywood.” Perhaps Complex put it best during Yaweh’s run of buzzing singles: “The Orlando rapper has already proved that he knows how to perform with the best of them, and [his next album] looks to bring any of the stragglers that are still sleeping on him to attention.”
Heart Full of Rage 2 ups the ante in every way, boasting an exciting array of collaborators and exploring all the different shades of RAGE (an acronym Yaweh lives by: Release All Good Energy). It dives further into the budding superstar’s influences., mixing his signature melodic cadence with rock and emo, pop, and hip-hop sounds for an album that is uniquely Tyla Yaweh.
