Is Ycee Finally Ready To Make His Comeback With “Aunty Lovina”?

Is Ycee Finally Ready To Make His Comeback With “Aunty Lovina”?

One of the many things I’ve noticed about the industry is how vital a Patoranking collaboration is.

There’s just something about Patoranking that makes everyone wanna be on a song with him. If as an artist, you don’t have a song with Pato, or as a new artist you make an album without Pato, then you’re not ready.

Well, last week, homeboy Ycee released his own Patoranking collab, “Aunty Lovina.” Maybe he’s finally ready to stage his long-overdue comeback? That remains to be seen.

What we can however ascertain at this moment is that Ycee just dropped a bop. Is this a song worthy of the hype, though?

Aunty Lovina” taps from the street vibe that the mainstream has had an influx of in the past couple of years. For one, it’s a shift from the seemingly alternative elements he’s been trying to infuse with his largely afro style for a while now.

Ycee is a talented artist. He’s versatile, too. That’s why in 2015, he was rapping on an atilogwu beat, and then the next week he was doing “Omo Alhaji” like he’s a pro. What followed is a labored release of his first project, “The First Wave.”

While “The First Wave” was quite a success, the momentum died around that time and he could never recover for a second wave.

In the five years that have gone by, Ycee has dropped an album that went under the radar. He’s also collaborated with a couple of guys, attempted a comeback more than once, and even tried to play the hip-hop head card.

But Ycee is more than just a rapper with flows. Lucky for him, he has a smash hit in “Juice

” that befits his status and establishes him as one of the guys out there with so much potential to still be something great.

Maybe a new album will do him some good. Maybe not. But he can’t give up now, can he?

Patoranking  “Aunty Lovina” with its uptempo instrumental, is reminiscent of the tunes that rocked the streets in and around 2018.  We all know the industry has moved on from sounds like that, and is now interested in laid-back vibes. But if there’s anyone that can make it work, it would be Patoranking.  The beat is perfect for what it’s for. Ycee and Pato take turns to simp for a hesitant girl, Lovina, in the club thereabouts.  Pato rapped on the hook and didn’t even sing any melody that could distract the flows Ycee was bringing on the verses. Ycee spit some fire, sure. Basic stuff, no lyrical exceptionality here, just normal flows in Pidgin and English.  The highlight of the lyrics is probably where Ycee referenced his 2018 hit with DJ Consequence, “Loud Inna Benz.”  With the scarcity of bangers in the industry currently, “Aunty Lovina” has an edge and could easily become a new street anthem.  Otherwise, it’s just another song that doesn’t give Ycee any upper hand in the game against new guys like Omah Lay, Rema and OG’s like Burna and Wiz. Also, four minutes is just too long!
