@YoungstaCpt & @shaney_jay’s Upcoming Album ‘Suffer For Beauty’ Is Now Available For Pre-Order

By @SeptemberEleven on 03/06/2023 in Article

YoungstaCPT and producer Shaney Jay are about to follow-up their 2021 collaborative project ‘Dreams Don’t Pay Bills’. The upcoming project is titled ‘Suffer For Beauty’ and the duo released the first single, ‘Benni McCarthy’ last month. 

“Our first project was Dream Don’t Pay Bills which I like to call the pandemic mixtape,” YoungstaCPT says. “The title of this next project is ‘Suffer for Beauty’ and it’s amazing how all this is happening to us a nation, whether it’s load shedding or looting or corruption and violence, we deal with a lot of recurring trauma as South Africans and then being in the entertainment industry comes with its own set of trials.”

YoungstaCPT shared the project’s artwork when announcing the pre-order. Breaking down the project’s title, YoungstaCPT said: “We’re living in a Tik Tok generation where music only lasts 15 seconds and fans expect you to drop something new on a weekly basis not knowing the process of what goes into it, from mixing, mastering, promoting, touring, music video rollouts etc. which all cost money. So as artists, and me personally being independent, we are under a great deal of pressure to feed our audience which comes with a lot of strain and struggle but when you hear our music or see our visuals it sounds great and looks beautiful so that’s what I’m highlighting with this project, the amount of pain we go through to emerge on the other side and deliver something beautiful..”

Shaney Jay added, “You can expect a whole lot of different vibes, hard raps with an international touch as well.”
