Yonas Michael – “Love is Legal”

“You just make me touch myself. I ain’t asking for no help. Yeah, I like you with ya clothes on but you look better when naked. Let’s get nasty, girl, we ain’t gotta be classy.” – lyrics

‘Love is Legal’ tells the tale of a guy who eases his way into the heart of a woman he desires to be with romantically. His razor-sharp game, “I don’t wanna pay a buck for love. I just wanna cuddle, kiss, and hug”, has her rethinking her plans. Also, the song contains a relatable storyline, relationship raps, and a charismatic instrumentation produced by Puga.

“Echoes of Prince and Pharrell can be found laced within this delicately created fantasy amusement park for romance. Sweetly seductive, naughty and slick, ‘Love is Legal’ showcases Yonas’s trademark rhymes and falsetto melodies with an assurance that belies the lyrical content.”

Yonas Michael’s musical influences include  N.E.R.D, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Biggie Smalls, Jimi Hendrix, Prince, and Bob Marley. ‘Love is Legal’ is his most revealing and evocative work to date. Also, it was written and recorded between Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Philadelphia.
