Locked in and laced up tight rapper Yonas is back with another powerful track, his new single “Good Day,” designed to not only help get listeners through quarantine, but to also introduce the #GOODDAYCHALLENGE to social media.
The challenge encourages fans and music lovers to utilize the video capabilities of Facebook, Instagram, Tik Tok, and Twitter to share with others how they’re remaining optimistic in the course of the Coronavirus pandemic. Yonas’ goal is to bring a little joy into this anxiety-inducing plight.
Yonas shares, “That’s what I’ve been trying to do with my music from the beginning. Make the harsh realities a little easier to digest. Hide the medicine in the candy.”
From an early age, Yonas was involved in music. A hyper kid, his parents made sure he participated in activities like drum lessons and violin lessons, studying both jazz and classical music. Later, he took up sports, but eventually chose to pursue music.
He began attracting attention in 2009, with the release of his New Golden Era EP, followed by his single, “Shy Kidz,” featured on Fuse TV and MTV. In 2012, his mixtape, The Transition, exploded across digital platforms amassing beaucoup streams and downloads, sending the rapper on a cross country tour to SRO crowds.
Now with more than half-a-billion streams, Yonas’ music frequents iTunes and films, like The Place Beyond the Pines, with Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, along with sharing the stage with other stars of the hip-hop hierarchy, such as Macklemore, Wale, Juicy J, Ryan Lewis, Gorilla Zoee, Logic, and White Panda.
“Good Day” opens on a bright pop-flavored piano rolling into an infectious rhythm, as Yonas’ persuasive tones deliver buoyant lyrics, while radiant backing harmonies imbue the tune with buoyant hues. With his inimitable flow and contagious cheerfulness, Yonas infuses “Good Day” with happy-go-lucky energy spotlighting the sheer pleasure of being alive, no matter what the circumstances.
With “Good Day,” Yonas escorts listeners on an enthusiastic musical expedition, providing sunshine during an otherwise taxing situation.
