[embed width="600"][/embed]


Ghanaian/German soulstress Y'akoto's "Diamonds" is a smooth excursion into golden R&B with vocals that couple Macy Gray's raspiness with pop staccato choruses. Watch the vintage photo-shoot video for the track above, check out an interpretive dance clip for older single "Tamba" below and look out for Y'akoto's debut album Baby Blues out 3/23.
