Back in December, Ye Ali shared the third installment of his Private Suite 3 series. The project presented 16 tracks and enlists JAHKOY, DCMBR, Lyfe Harris, and others for features. He just recently dropped the official visual for “Backrubs,” the sensual DCMBR-assisted. In the new video, Ye Ali delivers his smooth verse about an old fling while he’s surrounded by beautiful women:
I heard Alexis married ol’ boy, I thought I would feel a way, but I’m just happy for her/ ’Cause I met somebody special, ain’t you happy for us? You still text me time to time, guess you needed more/ I met her in Toronto on tour, couple drinks, couple laughs, it’s a blur/ But it was love at first sight, at least I’m pretty sure. What’s your address, baby girl? I’ma send the car/
Aside from his own music, Ye Ali has been seen recently in the production credits for projects like Jack Harlow’s That’s What They All Say on the Chris Brown-featured “Already Best Friends” as well as Fetty Wap and Monty’s You Know The Vibes cut, “Way Past 12.” He also recently grabbed a shiny new Platinum plaque for his contributions on “Stranger Things” by Joyner Lucas and Chris Brown, his first placement ever in his career.
In a recent sit-down with REVOLT from this year, Ye Ali delved into an important lesson he’s learned about being in the studio that he carries with him:
Play your role. Sometimes if you have certain people in the studio, you don’t need to do everything. Maybe you don’t need to top line. Maybe you need to do clean-up duty. Rebounds and hitting the boards. I think of it as sports. The hustle players, like Draymond Green, matter because he does the things Steph [Curry] and Klay [Thompson] don’t do. Sometimes you need to be the glue guy who finishes a line someone can’t finish. You don’t need to be the guy who writes the whole song. I learned I don’t need to take the reigns to fully improve everything.
