Yebba & A$AP Rocky Are Boundless On “Far Away”
Yebba and A$AP Rocky connect on “Far Away,” from Yebba’s debut album, “Dawn.”
That being said, where “Yebba’s Heartbreak” is a more murky and solemn piano-laden ballad, Yebba explores different sonic territory across her debut album. Dawn was preceded with singles like “Louie Bag” featuring Smino and “Boomerang,” both showing the range of her vocals and offering differing emotions. “Far Away,” on the other hand, finds Yebba connecting with everyone’s favorite non-Southern-Southern rapper, A$AP Rocky. Yebba takes her cue from Rocky, so it seems, as she begins, “Roll up all my ones, take my chances/Hit another blunt, watch the embers burn away/Pour a double cup, I’m dirty dancin’/What am I running from when I run so.”
Apart from a lean reference, there’s also a sort of psychedelic, alt-rock influence, that seems to creep in just as A$AP Rocky starts rapping, and it only proceeds to get trippier, before the music overwhelms the production once more.

I love shrooms, I might get that tattooed
Might just keep it cool, depending on my mood
The sun is rising, depending on my moon
Tell them boys back it up ’cause I’m finna act a fool
– A$AP Rocky
