Video: YNW BSlime – “One Step” ft. YNW Melly
The Prodigious Teen Talent and His Brother Head to Africa in a New Video
“His debut is sure to have middle school dances on smash.” – Pitchfork
“12-year-old rapper YNW BSlime didn’t drop his first song until July 2019 with ‘Hot Sauce,’ but the young artist’s profile is already on the rise” – Genius
“At just 12 years old, Florida rapper YNW BSlime is already making waves. The younger brother of YNW Melly stands out through his youthful voice and good sense of melody, putting together bright, thumping songs about the streets, getting money and the girls on his mind.” – XXL
“One thing that you’ll pick up right off the bat is that this kid has a solid voice. Like his older brother, YNW BSlime knows how to utilize the depth of his vocals to truly come across as a melody king.” – HotNewHipHop
YNW BSlime has an ear for melody and an expressive singing voice that would be impressive for someone twice his age. Teaming up with his brother YNW Melly, BSlime shares “One Step,” his new video single. Finally sharing the long-anticipated source of a snippet Melly shared on Instagram last year, BSlime and Melly implore the listener to move their bodies as they float atop a dancehall-inflected beat. While Melly applies his singular melodic sensibility to the song’s hook, BSlime impresses during his verses, dancing between the syncopated rhythms as he pledges his devotion to his latest fling.
In the video, BSlime heads to Africa with his girlfriend, enlisting the help of a guide to find lost treasure…which turns out to be a bedazzled “YNW” chain. The currently-incarcerated Melly appears in CGI form, his face appearing on various surfaces to sing the hook. Exhibiting an easy chemistry between the two musical brothers, “One Step” is the latest earworm-y single from BSlime’s upcoming Slime Fever project, following the plaintive “Just Wait” (1 million views) which finds BSlime processing his brother’s legal troubles, theromantic “Luv U,“ and the none-too-serious “Freestyle LOL” (3 million YouTube views),
Starting from the moment when Melly encouraged BSlime to stop playing Fortnite and come join him at the studio, Melly has always had his little brother’s back. But BSlime doesn’t stand in anyone’s shadow. Released in July 2019, BSlime’s first single “Hot Sauce” caught fire on social media, racking up over 1 million plays in less than 24 hours of release. The budding star built a massive following on YouTube and SoundCloud, generating nearly 82 million domestic streams and 35 million video views in the past 12 months off the strength of follow-up hits like “Slime Dreams” (20 million streams on Spotify). Last winter, BSlime shared his debut project BABY GOAT, which racked up over 63 million streams, earned positive notes in Pitchfork and HotNewHipHop and featured appearances from Melly and Lil Tjay.
When he’s not making music, BSlime loves to play basketball, eat ice cream, and dominate Fortnite on his XBox. Stay tuned for Slime Fever, coming very soon…BSlime season is approaching.
