Listen to the Premiere of 'Betta,' A Hot Collaboration From Yung L, Wavos & Liana Bank$

"Betta" is a hip-swaying, love-encouraging summertime track.

Yung L and Wavos really did it with their latest track. With the addition of Liana Bank$, "Betta" is bound to advance your summertime romance.

"Betta" is a culmination of electronic-pop, afrobeats, spirit-lifting lyrics, and strums from a bass guitarist who knows exactly how to please the soul.


Nigerian artist, Yung L, incorporates his Nigerian roots in this very modern track. Wavos' new wave, post-punk flavor facilitates more diversity to the instrumental, and Liana Banks adds just the right amount of soul and R&B attitude to further reiterate the message of the song.

Wavos shared with us a piece of the process and the birth of their collaboration: "Yung L and I started the song by emailing ideas back and forth, and we had a finished version but it was missing a female perspective on it. I reached out to Liana and she delivered it perfectly."

"Betta" is about moving on, and seeking what one deserves. "This song is for the summer. It's the perfect time to leave that girl or guy who isn't treating you right and find someone who will love you betta," said Yung L.

Listen to the premiere of "Betta" below. You may find yourself putting the track on repeat.

"Betta" is now available on Spotify and iTunes.
