Born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, Yalee knew that his town couldn’t hold his dreams, so he left for New York City the day he turned 21. In his upcoming EP, 10 Hours Away, he mentions how he’d drive around New York to network and sleep in his car to make his dreams come true.
In 2013, he launched his career with Remember My Name, a mixtape that featured a cover of Rihanna’s hit “Stay.” A year later, the mixtape track “Pretty Girl Dance” was released as a single, while 2015 saw the arrival of “Pretty Girl Dance, Pt. 2” featuring Fetty Wap on the remix, which has been one of his biggest songs to date garnering over 1.5 m youtube views.
Today, the video premiere we have is Yalee’s first single “Friends With Benefits”. Check out his video below and be sure to grab your 10 Hours Away copy when it drops on February 3rd on Google Play or iTunes.
