Johnny Yukon – Rounds / Sleep

posted by: Arjun New Music Daily
New Johnny Yukon!

In March we were introduced to Johnny Yukon via his gorgeous tune “Don’t Play,” which has held a permanent residence in my most played songs of 2015. Now part of the 1234 Creations collective, the singer-songwriter has released a follow-up single. “Rounds / Sleep” is a sprawling, hybrid of a song. The first half gives me shades of Justin Timberlake. The second half sounds heavily inspired by Drake.

Overall, this sounds like the type of music Justin Timberlake would have made if he grew up listening to Migos, Drake, and Jaden Smith, and honestly it’s incredible.


About a month ago, frequent Jon Waltz producer NOVA dropped an excellent cover of “Don’t Play” on his Soundcloud. Peep it below. Sorry for saying “peep.”
