Yuna & DJ Premier Marry Boom Bap & Soul On New Collaboration “Places To Go”

It’s been a minute since we caught up with the lovely Yuna. But today we learn that the Malaysian soulstress is readying her third studio album, Chapters for a late spring/early summer release. And in preparation for the album’s arrival, she’s relinquished the collaboration that you never knew you always wanted: “Places To Go,” featuring the one and only, DJ Premier on production. Yuna’s lilt floats just above a hallmark boom bap beat, provided by one of its principal architects, marrying hip-hop and soul like few before them; a blissful union, indeed.
