Yung Citizen | About
A new artist on the music scene, Christopher “Yung Citizen” Williams blends his own interpretations of Hip Hop, R&B/Pop to create original music that will reach deep into your inner spirit and move you to a sublime consciousness to believe in oneself and always pursue your dreams. Founder of his own media company, Citizenship Music Group, Yung Citizen’s ultimate goal is to create timeless music that inspires and motivates the world to follow their dreams.
Some of his musical influences have been Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Ryan Leslie and Pharrell Williams. While still in high school he remembers listening to N.E.R.D. and being so inspired by both Pharrell and Chad Hugo having to courage to create music that was somewhat outside the mainstream and DIFFERENT.
Citizen finds himself wanting to travel in those same footsteps and blaze a trail unique sound. In early 2015, Citizen released his first single “Power People” which speaks to encouraging and empowering people of every persuasion and ethnicity to take back control of their life’s journey and achieve their dreams and destiny. With this track Citizen stayed true to addressing real world issues that face our communities and challenge all of us to take ownership to work toward positive solutions.
