Know Yourself: @Yanah_I Releases New Single, “The Root”!


Closing out Black History Month and Reggae Month, one of our favourite Recording Artists Yanah emerges with new music for 2019! A song that’ll wake you up, she releases “The Root“! Produced by Kone, Yanah celebrates Melanin and the Mother Divine, reminds us all that we are Kings and Queens, and we should always remember where we’re coming from. Know yourself and your history, never let them white wash your brain! Accompanying the new music is a visual brought to us by C.

Artwork provided by Mikhail DeGale, check out “The Root” below, and share with a friend. Show us some love on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
