Soulja Boy - Yahhh! feat. Arab

Single Review by Michael Slevin | 23 Apr 2008
Single title: Yahhh! feat. Arab
Artist: Soulja Boy
Label: Collipark Music/Interscope Records
Release date: Out Now

Following on from the success of Crank That (Soulja Boy), Soulja Boy is back with his pal Arab, and this time, rather than telling you to watch him dance, he documents a regularly-occuring problem for rising stars: unwanted fan attention, and how to deal with it. In essence, this boils down to shouting YAHHH! in their faces, barking and making funny noises at them. The first time you hear this, you’ll find it hilarious. On subsequent listen, the humour will fade, but the fact that this is a well made tune won’t. The pulsing synth backbone and simple drum loops never get boring, and if the expertly crafted, conversational lyrics don’t get you, then the dismissive chant used throughout will. An excellent second single from a deservedly rising hip-hop star, listen to this, but don’t be surprised if you find yourself being ruder to people than usual. [Michael Slevin]
