Let’s Start Here has been earning acclaim from fans and critics alike including Rolling Stone, which called it “as cohesive a project as any artist has released in the streaming era.”
Yachty said the album marks a reset for his career. “I’ve changed my dynamic. This album and on, I’m creating music a whole lot differently,” he told Ice Box.
