Toronto singer Carol Marie presents the new music video for “Yayo”, the new single off of her 2022 EP titled Monte Carlo Hotel.
Directed by Tristan Laughton and produced by NOS, Carol Marie’s new single comes on the heels of visuals for “Chasing Chains” the breakout track from the Monte Carlo Hotel EP which gave fans a first look at the poetic songstress. Born in Toronto, Carol Marie was raised on Weston Road, a road mentioned in Toronto native Drake’s 2016 song “Weston Road Flows”, and his 2018 song “God’s Plan”. A road that would later be the place where Carol Marie fell in love with music and was introduced to some of her biggest inspirations like Drake, Ella Fitzgerald, Pressa, Nina Simone, and Billie Holiday.
Carol had this to say about “Yayo”, “Yayo is inspired by Tony Montana, the character from Scarface.” “It’s about being in love with someone who has no limits.”
