Last week, Slim K set bedrooms ablaze with his Nice & Slow 51 mix. One of the tracks heavily featured was “Thigh Kisser” from Y.E. Ali, a track the self-proclaimed Traphouse Jodeci lent to OG Ron C & Slim K. Well, the returns on the inclusion of “Thigh Kisser” have been so big, Y.E. Ali decided to release the original version of the D. Sanders produced cut on his Soundcloud page.

The California by way of Indiana product is finding his way in this rather new realm of R&B where the most repetitive sound is an emotive, druggy, sexualized and trap inspired one. He’s already scrapped what was to be Trap House Jodeci and instead is putting the finishing touches on Private Suite 2, which as of this writing had only seven tracks, none of them being his breakthrough single. Y.E. Ali’s vocal patterns don’t lift off the beat. Instead they just nestle and snug their way into your head to a point when you’re repetitively singing the chorus. This first happened when I heard “Thigh Kisser” and happened again with “Tingz”. Don’t worry, I think we’ll be dealing with Y.E. Ali for a little while. Stream the original version of “Thigh Kisser” below.
