MAKJ and JYYE – Promises
Reflecting on the things that have occurred over the past 12 months, “Promises” looks for ways to better ourselves for the coming year and make it one worth remembering. The release sees MAKJ link up with JYYE for a second time on Armada and features deep vocals weaving throughout suspenseful builds and arpeggio-driven drops. “Promises” is a follow-up to the MAKJ hit “Green Light” which became EDMunplugged’s Track of the Month in October 2020.
“‘Promises’ mixes the MAKJ sound everyone is used to with the sounds of JYYE to bring together one of my favorite collabs I’ve done.”MAKJ
“It was a lot of fun working together with MAKJ on this tune as we have amazing chemistry as creatives. ‘Promises’ is one for the books; I hope our fans love it as much as we enjoyed creating it.”JYYE
