Today, burgeoning R&B singer/songwriter Zyah Belle unveils her debut album Yam Grier today via Guin Records. 

Listen to Yam Grier HERE.

Of the album title, Zyah shared, “Yam Grier is representative of a woman that is reclaiming her time, agency over her body and voice through the generations. Inspired by Pam Grier’s fierceness that she emoted in her prominent 70s blaxploitation roles. Yam Grier is the embodiment of a woman who has finally come into her own, unapologetically.

The 14-track album takes listeners on an empowering journey of self-love and discovery. Whether it be the witty bad b*tch energy of “Not the One,” or the melodic and vulnerable “Spiritual Bath,” Zyah’s confidence radiates throughout. Yam Grier also boasts features from some of Zyah’s frequent collaborators Tempest, AJ Claire, Jay Wile, Mindy, Nate Curry and Jordan Hawkins on the album’s focus “Back To Back,” which floats on clean guitar through a laidback beat.

Zyah’s initial infectious singles “DND” and “Not The One,” garnered praise from VIBE, BET, Uproxx, MTV, Noisey  and more, and anointed the singer as one of People Magazine’s “Emerging Artists You Should Be Listening to All Summer Long.”

She also recently debuted the first episode of her “Road to Yam Grier” docuseries. The multi-part series takes fans behind the scenes to witness Zyah’s album develop from start to finish. Viewers are let in on some of Zyah’s most intimate moments with interviews woven in with those that impacted her journey and the struggles she overcame to get to where she’s at. Watch HERE.
