Azu Yeché releases an uplifting retro-soul tune, entitled, “Be That Guy”

Azu Yeché is a singer-songwriter based in London, England. Not too long ago, he released an uplifting retro-soul tune, entitled, “Be That Guy,” produced by Azu and Tony White.

“Don’t tell me what I can’t be, don’t bring to me your limits, don’t tell me what I can’t do. Lord knows it’s not a secret, centuries, centuries of oppression, centuries, centuries of repression. Go on and be that guy, the one you want to be. Go on and be that guy, the one you dreamed about. Don’t tell me not to dream big, talk about the situation. Stop telling me to hold back, it’s not in line with my ambition.” – lyrics

‘Be That Guy’ takes inspiration from the socially conscious soul music of the 1960s and ‘70s. What initially comes off as a musical soul-pop tune reveals itself as a powerful anthem speaking directly to those who’ve been oppressed throughout history. The rousing tune’s irresistible groove and vocal arrangements elevate it to a song of hope in these trying times.

Subject matter aside, “Be That Guy” is a hook-laden soul-pop confection that invites repeated listens. It is no wonder that Aretha Franklin’s page posted Azu Yeché’s special cover of her civil rights classic, “Respect,” a few months ago. Furthermore, “Be That Guy” follows Azu’s previously released single, “Plastic Life,” and his sold-out London show at The St Pancras Old Church.

“Belonging to a minority group can sometimes feel like a limitation in the world we live in. And this song is simply encouraging people to still live their best lives despite some of these injustices we continue to face.” – Azu Yeché explained
