New Music: Johnny Yukon – ‘Roll Up’

Rising star Johnny Yukon has generated buzz with songs like “Laptop,” “Malibu Feels,” and “Paper.” Now, the burgeoning 21-year-old from Warrington, Pa., is ready to “Roll Up” with a new single, premiering exclusively on Rap-Up.

Inspired by his move to Los Angeles, the summer-ready banger allows Johnny to flex his skills over an atmospheric beat with trap influence produced by HERB, Tru, and Yukon himself.

“All I do is roll up,” he sings. “All I do is swerve to the left and swerve to the right / Swerve to the girl, only hear for one night / Swerve to the girl who gets me high / All I do is roll up.”

Yukon opened up about the song’s vibes and inspiration with Rap-Up. “‘Roll Up’ is honestly one of the first songs I did when I moved out here [to Los Angeles],” he explained. “It brings me back to my east coast roots and reminds me of everything that has changed in the past two years since I’ve moved. It’s also just one of those ones I made with the homies that’s always a vibe.”

“Roll Up” follows Yukon’s buzzing “Laptop” single, which was produced by Drake’s “Fake Love” beatsmith Frank Dukes, as well as his new songs “Malibu Feels” and “Paper.”

The track also lands as Johnny gears up for The Fate of the Furious soundtrack, for which he wrote four new songs featuring the likes of Young Thug, Jeremih, Lil Wayne, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Yachty, and 2 Chainz.

Yukon has written for various artists in the past, including Jennifer Lopez and Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Love Make the World Go Round”). Listen to his latest vibes below.
