Video: Yung Pinch – “Sail Away” (Prod. by Charlie Handsome & Wheezy)
The Huntington Beach Rapper Looks to Grow His Sizable Following With the Partially-Animated New Video, Premiered by HYPEBEAST
Bringing a beach-ready pop sheen to contemporary Hip-Hop, SoCal melody master Yung Pinch is ready to convert his cult following into mainstream recognition. Sharing a new slice of ear candy, Pinch releases “Sail Away,” his latest video single. Floating over a bubbly instrumental complete with arpeggiating guitar and trap percussion courtesy of producers Charlie Handsome (Post Malone, Travis Scott) and Wheezy (Young Thug, 21 Savage), Pinch invites the object of his affections to join him in his whirlwind rise through the music industry. In the video, directed by Lone Wolf, Pinch carries a bouquet of roses to the beach, driving in an animated paper cut-out of his convertible and sailing in his newspaper boat. Premiered by HYPEBEAST, “Sail Away” is an intimate and creative portrait of the young artist, and a potent peek into his world view. Earlier in 2018, Pinch shared the honeyed “Smoke & Drive,” which samples Weezer‘s “Island In The Sun” and features appearances from fellow Cali hitmakers blackbear and P-Lo, and cashed “Big Checks,” a celebratory jam with a guest spot from YG.
Explains Yung Pinch, “This song means so much to me. There’s so much emotion and real life in it that’s so relatable right now. I knew I had to do a visual for it and I knew it had to translate that same feeling the song gives, so I hit this kid Lonewolf that I’ve had my eye on for a while. I came up with a couple ideas then we linked up and shot it and he ended up turning it into a masterpiece. Perfect vibe to lead into the release of #4EVERHEARTBROKE 3 on Valentine’s Day! Also get your tickets now for my tour starting 2/15 in Austin, TX!”
Representing “Bluntington Beach,” California, Yung Pinch blends R&B hooks with melodic rap flows into a fresh new strain of danceable hip-hop. The 20-year-old OC artist has been making steady waves, having opened for Post Malone, Young Thug, Ty Dolla $ign, Nate Dogg, Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti, and more. Accumulating millions of streams since the drop of his 2017 #FREEYUNGPINCH EP, including over 8 million Spotify plays on “When I Was Yung,” a mainstay on the service’s Clout Culture playlist, Yung Pinch is building an unstoppable momentum as he hurdles towards his next project, sure to be his biggest yet. Catch Yung Pinch on his headlining All 4 The Love Tour, which commences in Austin on February 15th.
