After co-writing BTS’ debut single “ON” and going platinum and Billboard #1 status, emerging singer-songwriter Krysta Youngs is increasingly using her lyrical talents to shape her solo project. Youngs, who has appeared in productions released through Spinnin’, Armada, DimMak, Lowly, Sony, and Trap City, recently put pen to paper for “MENTAL BREAKDOWN,” a fluid, pop-leaning number with on-trend percussion work. tropical. His 2022 original debut, “MENTAL BREAKDOWN” lyrically explores the emotions associated with, in his own words, “loving someone who isn’t right for you.” Through this lens, Youngs says the song embodies “the realization that love has a life of its own. It breaks you down and spits you out, but only if you let it.
Accompanied by a brightly colored visual that somewhat resembles Tove Lo’s “Habits (Stay High)” video in its narrative beat, “MENTAL BREAKDOWN” finds Youngs courting aesthetic fantasy in a contemplative context. In the past, Youngs’ work has composed soundtracks for shows like MTV The real world, sell sunset, Million Dollar Beach Houseand keeping up with the Kardashiansand “MENTAL BREAKDOWN” adds to his robust resume with personality and easy-to-listen appeal.
