YAHZARAH DOES HER BALLAD!
Funky, sultry, original, sassy, sexy and eccentric are just a few of the adjectives I'd use to describe the soulful musician Yahzarah a.k.a Purple St. James. After chatting with her a few times at past events, I feel confident in stating that she is definitely a handful! I dig her frank honesty, and the fact she is comfortable being herself. What you see is what you get. I have posted about Yahz many times in the past, so I won't bother discussing her origin. She's back with a new album worth your attention, so lets get into it. Her new project is called "The Ballad of Purple St. James" and this is a solid album. The combination of Nicolay and Phonte's production works well with Yahzarah's vocals. The lean 13 tracks total on the album leaves no room for filler, which is greatly appreciated. Every song has a purpose, and adds to the overall theme. Yahz keeps it in the Foreign Exchange family by only utilizing Phonte and Darien Brockington for guest appearances on the joint, which are two of my favorite tracks.

If you have never checked for Yahzarah in the past, this is good place to start. Don't sleep! For fans this is a no-brainer, so make sure you support this quality music. Save the illegal downloading for the wack suckaz...

@PurpleSkyyys - I agree! Yahz is good people too. She is very humble and down to earth, with a rich spirit. The new video is very fresh.
