Yaya Bey: on the pisces moon

The second single from Yaya Bey’s upcoming EP, Exodus the North Star, “on the pisces moon” is a buoyant, reggae-tinged track about making the most of the love and time we have. “Two things for certain / the night is ours for the taking / the love is ours for the making,” she sings on the breezy tune. The artist says in a statement, “Exodus the North Star is my most vulnerable work to date. This is how I see joy and love in the world and what I aspire to feel and be. I have become an expert at turning my pain and grief as a black woman into music. Black people have a masterful way of telling our stories and sharing pain, but we’re also masters of joy and imagination. We have always been in a global conversation about how to alchemize our experiences and reimagine our circumstances. From the ties between Lovers Rock and R&B to Gospel and House. Our joy is a collective effort.”
