KYLE's Light of Mine album arrives on his 25th birthday, May 18, and now he's shared another preview of the highly anticipated debut. Bringing along 2 Chainz and Sophia Black, "Ikuyo," which roughly translates from Japanese to "here we go," sees the California rapper branching out even further.
Following the release of the super-fun video for the Kehlani-featuring "Playinwitme," the latest taste of Light of Mine has Black building up to KYLE's catchy hook with a Japanese pre-chorus. It's a low-key affair, but that all changes when 2 Chainz brings his high-energy delivery with another fantastic guest verse.
Despite his happy-go-lucky image with songs like "iSpy," KYLE recently revealed to HotNewHipHop that Light of Mine focuses on his experiences with depression,with the record structured like a book. "This album is kind of a step-by-step instructional guideline of how I overcame my depression, and how you can overcome yours, if you just listen to my story and hear my experiences.”
