Yebba Music Music Career

Abbey became first known for her backing vocal performance on Chance the Rapper’s SNL performance of the song “Same Drugs” in 2016 and releasing her debut single “Evergreen” in 2017.

In 2017, when she performed a song called “My Mind”, she revealed that she was co-signed by Ed Sheeran’s label.

After the official release of her debut single “Evergreen,” Yebba said about the song, ” I grew up doing music in my dad’s church from a baby, so I’ve spent about a seventh of my life on the front row, besides my momma, and right behind my dad’s organ.

Church has always been a place of honesty, questioning, and family. So after we saw mom’s suicide, and that sense of family seemingly dissolved, a building I had become entirely estranged to seemed like the only place I could go.”

Later the same year, she collaborated with Sam Smith on the song “No Peace”, which was released through Sam’s 2017 album The Thrill of It All.

In 2018, Yebba collaborated with Zane Lowe to release her debut music video for her debut single “Evergreen”, which was done so with support from Apple Music and Beats 1.

Lowe stated about the music video, “YEBBA is an artist in every sense of the word, and working together to bring her vision to light was truly remarkable. She has one of the more powerful and exciting voices to come along in years, and we are excited to introduce her to the world”.

In 2019, Yebba was nominated and won her first ever Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance of the song “How Deep Is Your Love”, alongside PJ Morton at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards.

Yebba is also scheduled to appear on three songs from Mark Ronson’s upcoming album Late Night Feelings.

In April 2019, she appeared as a guest vocalist alongside The Staves for Mumford & Sons’ live performance of the song “Beloved” on The Jonathan Ross Show.
