k-os (also known as Kheaven Brereton) has enjoyed much acclaim from his fourth studio album Yes!, featuring guest appearances from Emily Haines of Metric & Murray Lightburn of The Dears. With it’s innovative sound, Yes! made waves with “4,3,2,1” (hip hop’s response to Feist’s “1,2,3,4”) and other standout tracks such as “Burning Bridges” “Uptown girl” and “Eye Know Something, which he performed at this year’s Vancouver Winter Olympic Games.
