Towards the end of 2016, individual members of The Internet announced that they were pursuing solo careers and exploring their personal music tastes in other directions.
Shortly after that, lead singer Syd Tha Kyd announced that her debut solo album, “Fin” would be dropping early February and today, her first solo single, ‘All About Me’ premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio Show with supporting visuals.
‘All About Me’ may give you preconceived ideas regarding the song’s content, but it’s not what the title suggests. It’s a trap-tinged tune produced by The Internet’s Steve Lacy with Syd singing about the reciprocal faith and confidence between her and her clique. The visuals support this with cameos from Tyler, The Creator, Hodgy, and other members of Odd Future.
During a recent interview on Pharrell’s OtherTone radio show, she mentioned it would be more mainstream than people are used to, but still distinctly her. If ‘All About Me’ is the first taste of what the rest of her album will be like, we know we’re in for a treat.
