Listen to IYO's Single "2AM"



*F%#@ The Algorithm is a music playlist curated by KILJOY magazine for your listening pleasure. At the end of every month these songs are put into a playlist for your binging necessities.



Since the, "new music algorithm" hasn't been good at bringing you music from new artist, I've decided to bring you some new music. Today I bring you IYO and his single "2AM", which is the second leading single from his newest album aftrthewake! Upon first listen, there are obvious influences of anime culture within the song. It makes sense because 2AM takes cues from the popular sub-genre of hip-hop called "Hyper-pop" and alternative hip-hop. Hyper pop is a mix of hip-hop, electronic, and dance music and is popular among the younger generations of music listeners. IYO does a perfect job marrying the melody of his vocals with the high-intensity beat.


IYO is fresh off performing for the KILJOY Magazine release party as well as performing on the freestyle rap series BarzonWheels. All this happened off the strength of his album. Iyo has been working hard on breaking the mold to get his music out there. With about 35k Spotify listeners and over 30k hours streamed, I would say the IYO is closer to breaking the mold than anyone may realiz. Steam the single 2AM below as well as stream aftrthewake on Apple Music.

Counting up my cash that shit ain't enough

picking up buy bag that shit ain't enough

counting up my stack that shit ain't enough
