YBSA (Your Beauty Stands Alone) is an alternative R&B song about love and beauty. The distinctive, richly textured, velvet voice of Sam Jones, glides effortlessly between the characteristic groove of Joe Dworniak’s bass line and production creating an unmistakable iLEVEL sound!
Originally sitting on the edge of the BritFunk era and underground scene, iLEVEL released 2 albums via Virgin Records. ‘Give Me’ & ‘Minefield’ reached no.5 & no.11 in the Billboard R&B and Club charts under license to EPIC.
Their sound fuses their diverse musical interests, influenced by their love for funk, soul, jazz, reggae, hip-hop and pop.
The video was shot in London as the UK lockdown started to lift and celebrates the beauty of love and friendship with a cast made up of family & friends.
“What a tune … it’s so good to hear these guys back together again and making music. It’s a beauty! Wow! …that voice, that beautiful voice of Sam” Gary Crowley BBC Radio London
This Alternative R&B catchy tune is sure to lift us all out of our lockdown blues and get our summer groove on the dance floor!
