Music Review: “PULL UP” by Yume ft Tory Lanez

YUME, with an innate gift for music and entertainment, is quickly establishing her name in the industry. At the tender age of 13, she's already co-produced platinum and gold chart-toppers with producers Kaniel & Murphy Kid, including hits like Chris Brown & Young Thug's "Go Crazy" (#5 on Billboard's Hot 100), Drake & Kid Cudi's "IMY2" (#19 on Billboard's Hot 100), and NLE Choppa's "Jumpin" (#40 on

Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Song). Her work on Drake’s "Certified Lover Boy" even garnered a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album.

Yume recently unveiled a fresh track titled "Pull Up" featuring Tory Lanez. The song showcases the prevalent R&B style infused with the familiar autotune characteristic of contemporary music. The chorus is engaging, setting the stage for Tory Lanez's awaited verse. On X, previously known as Twitter, Yume revealed the track was created two years prior, stating, "This is the first song and video I ever made, grateful to Tory for his faith in me.”

Tory Lanez has been in the news concerning his trial over the shooting of Megan Thee Stallion. The Canadian singer, handed a ten-year prison term, will serve his time in a state facility after his bail plea was rejected. Fortunately, the music video with Yume was filmed before his sentencing. Yume's decision to collaborate with Lanez, given his recent controversies, prompted mixed reactions on her X post. A fan expressed concern, saying, "...Yume, reconsider this. It would be more beneficial to collaborate with Meg than Tory... As an independent artist, your career should be a priority, and associating with Tory's brand might not be in your best interest." Yet, some offered their backing: "Great tune. Continue your musical journey and #freetory." Regardless of the public's stance on the collaboration, witnessing young talents like Yume ardently chase their dreams is truly commendable.
