After announcing that he has recorded over 400 songs in preparation for the selection process for his debut album titled ‘22’, Yaksta released the first single. The single Alchemist, produced by Hapilos Records, features Yaksta’s signature style and showcases his undeniable talent as a musician. The lyrics to the song is profound and encouraging, leaving a positive long-lasting impression on listeners. 

‘Alchemist’, represents the protagonist of the story, Yaksta, using the elements of life to create wonders. He notes, “The song is about elevation, the things I’ve been through, and the things I’m now achieving in abundance”. Based on the success he managed to amass over the years, the ‘Bush -Lawd’ believes the chemistry within the studio and among his colleagues lead to him “creating wonders out of nothing”


When asked about the significance of releasing ‘Alchemist’ first from his 18-track album, Yaksta explained, “Initially, it wasn’t the single set for release, but the video was shot and completed first. Since it already aligns well with the direction of the album, we decided to run with it. Additionally, the message in the song, is one of growth and elevation, so being able to acknowledge my blessings is always a great start”. He added in reference to his album, ‘22’, “We are all the protagonists of our story. This single, like many songs on the album, will surely make an impact on people who understand spirituality as it has a blend of gothic, modern reggae, and dancehall with a twist of trap”.

Yaksta rose to prominence with the single, ‘St. Mary’, which was released in May 2019. He is known for singles such as ‘Ambition’, ‘Hype & Brik’, ‘Asset’’ (Fowl Coop), and ‘Controversy’ to name a few. ‘22’ is his prelude album, which is set to be released on February 24, 2023 through distribution giants, Hapilos. “22 will be distributed and marketed by Hapilos. It will be made available on all major streaming platforms, so I look forward to the support of my fans worldwide. I am also looking at new markets and garnering new fans, based on the fusion of several genres on the album”, said Yaksta. 

The official album launch party is slated for Tuesday, February 21, 2023, at Mandela Park in Half Way Tree with live band performances from Beenie Man, Chronic Law, Monifia, and Yaksta himself. Everyone is invited to attend.
