R&B Artist KAYTA Releases Soulful See U Later On "TY"
Since KAYTA’s arrival on the R&B scene last year, she’s delivered five sultry singles to swoon over. Her latest, “TY,” is classic KAYTA — it’s slinking and sexy like all her past releases but there’s something new to this one. It’s like KAYTA 2.0. It’s got a more matured sound to it in both the vocals and the production — it’s her best work yet.
“TY” blooms from the very beginning with synth sparkles and woozy electronic warbles, steady punches tracking a beat-laden basis for KAYTA’s drawl to skim on. The arrangement has an underwater quality to it, the fresh pop of skin breaking the surface or bubbles gathering and fizzing in groups, a sort of clear tone that resounds throughout the track. For the most part, “TY” slinks along a steady thrum interrupted only by those slick beats, but there are moments when “TY” is urged on by KAYTA’s soulful vocals prodding for a new level of energy and affect here and there. Ultimately, “TY” is a fleeting R&B gem designed to drown in.
