*Yazz* (born Yasmin Evans, 19 May 1960) is an English pop singer, who remains best known for her 1988 UK number one single *The Only Way Is Up* Some of her records are credited to *Yazz and the Plastic Population*.

*Yazz* was born in Shepherd's Bush, London, to a Jamaican father and English mother. She attended Holland Park School, where she excelled at sports, including the 400 metres. She was also a member of the England under-19 volleyball team. Following a spell as a catwalk model, she scored a number of club hits after recording with the group *The Biz* in 1983. Her first commercial success came in early 1988, when she sang on *Coldcut's Doctorin' the House*.

It went on to spend five weeks at the top of the UK Singles Chart, eventually becoming the second-biggest-selling UK single of the year.

*We've been broken down
To the lowest turn
Bein' on the bottom line
Sure ain't no fun
But if we should be evicted
Huh, from our homes
We'll just move somewhere else
And still carry on
Oh
(Hold on) hold on
(Hold on) hold on
Ooh, aah, baby
hold on
(Hold on) ooh ooh aah
The only way is up, baby
For you and me now
The only way is up, baby
For you and me now
Aah
Now we may not know, huh
Where our next meal is coming from
But with you by my side
I'll face what is to come
Aah, boy I want to thank you
Yeah, for loving me this way
Things may be a little hard now
But we'll find a brighter day
Oh, yeah
(Hold on) hold on
(Hold on) hold on
Ooh, ooh ooh
hold on
(Hold on) won't be long
Ooh, yeah
The only way is up, baby
For you and me now
The only way is up, baby
For you and me now
Ooh ooh ooh
Talk about the only way is up, baby
Talk about the only way
Talk about the only way is up, baby
Talk about the only way
Talk about the only way is up, baby
hold on
(Hold on) hold on
Hey
hold on
(Hold on) won't be long
No no no*
