Likybo Releases Debut Album “Only Up From Here”

This year has been one for the books indeed but instead of allowing the effects of this year to suppress him, Likybo pushed through and delivered new music all year! The emerging Oakland artist is here with his first official full-length project titled, Only Up From Here. This project not only showcases why Likybo is the next artist from Oakland to make it big but his versatility as an artist. Rather it’s him treating a track as an open diary like he did on the opening song “Remember Me Like This” to serenading the ladies with his vocals on “LOF” to bass-heavy records such as “Road Run”. Likybo is the kind of artist that just when you think you’re going to box him into a particular sound or label him as a particular “rapper”, here he comes with something new showing off more of his hidden musical talents. 

“This is my debut album. I call it an album due to the length of the project and the versatility I delivered on this album to show everybody that it’s only up from here! I want people to know when it comes to this music especially the music I deliver, I’m talented AF! You don’t have to like me as an individual but one thing that’s for sure you can’t deny how good my music is” – Likybo

While Likybo has just released his debut full-length album he’s already working on his next project. Inspired by JaRule’s classic hit record “Between Me and You”, Likybo will deliver a full R&B project titled, “Between Me and You 2”. This project is slated to release in February 2021 where he will touch on his relationship problems as well as others. “I’m planning to drop the R&B project in February sometime with a new sound along with the Likybo everybody fell in love with”, stated Likybo.

Only Up From Here is out now and available on all streaming platforms. Be sure to stream his new album and stay connected with Likybo on social media (@likybo) for all updates.
