TOKiMONSTA has collaborated with Nigerian-American R&B duo VanJess on a cover of Floetry's 2002 hit "Say Yes," turning the chilled-out original into a full-on dancefloor banger. “The original ‘Say Yes’ was a song that encompassed the deeper meanings of openness and love," says TOKiMONSTA. "Though the pandemic has been challenging, I felt inspired to tap into that introspection and reinterpret this song with the help of the incredible VanJess. It’s my first real dance record and I’m excited to share it with the world." You can listen to that, and Floetry's version, below.

You can catch TOKiMONSTA on tour later this year, including shows in Seattle, NYC, DC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Vancouver. She'll also play Lakewood, PA's Elements fest in September and Puerto Vallarta's Lights All Night in November. The Seatle, NYC and DC shows are with Rochelle Jordan, Biicla, while L.A. also has Rush Davis x Kingdom on the bill. All dates are listed below.
