Yaya Bey returns with double singles, “the evidence" and “crying through my teeth”

09 November 2023, 12:23 | Written by Tyler Damara Kelly

New York's Yaya Bey has shared a double single, consisting of two new songs "the evidence" and "crying through my teeth." She first debuted the latter track with a COLORS session following her EP, Exodus the North Star.

Yaya Bey uses her music as a restorative practice that pulls no punches in its sharply-written perspective, speaking to the many sides of herself and the nuances of living as a Black woman in America. In the case of both new songs, they are deeply felt streams of her consciousness that speak to her own resilience in the face of a trying period of her life.

"crying through my teeth" is a slow and savoury reflection of maintaining a strong will in the face of grief and financial hardships. The second half of the double single, "the evidence," which also arrives with a new video, rings out as a heartening affirmation of that same resilience, with Yaya Bey rhythmically uplifting herself to stay on course.
