Artist of the Week
Soulja Boy

Week 18 of 2021




Soulja Boy

Soulja Boy returned with a bang this year. He released a new banger "She Make It Clap" and the single blew up on the internet. It quickly became a new favorite among music fans, trending on Twitter and sparking a new craze of viral dance on TikTok.

The beat is infectious, the lyrics are perfect for revellers, and the music video is fun with a lot of twerking girls and cameos from famous guests like Chief Keef and Desiigner. The song was released following his record deal with Virgin Music.

It propelled the "Crank That" hitmaker back to No. 1 on Billboard chart. It jumped from No. 19 to the first place on the Top Triller U.S. and bowed at No. 4 on Top Triller Global. If the early chart performance is any indication, it's expected to climb up high on Billboard Hot 100.

While riding high on the success of his latest single, Soulja Boy is gearing up for his next studio installment. A follow-up to his 2015 album "Loyalty", the new LP was originally set for release in 2019 but it's delayed following his incarceration.

According to his manager, the rapper is now in a better place following his prison stint. "The jail just woke him up," the manager claimed in an interview with HipHopDX.

"He's moving different and the jail taught him a lot. I hate that it had to be jail to do that, but sometimes you can lead a horse to water, you cant make them drink it. Hes totally a different person, the cat is real respectful now and he looks at things differently. The cat told me he loved me the other day, he never told me that."

Besides a new album, the lyricist is working on a documentary. "More people want to deal with him now because he's not wilding out. He's on the grown man stuff. So, he wants to venture more into movies and stuff like that," the manager explained.

SOULJA BOY BIO

Ten million people have accessed to his MySpace page. Call it just another new act, but Soulja Boy is set to create a phenomenon with his 'Crank Dat Soulja Boy'. Not only is the song catchy but it also delivers a dance move that will light fire faster than Macarena or even Asereje. The move is so infectious and widely popular in southern United States that animated icons like Sponge Bob Square Pants, Winnie the Pooh and Barney are kicking it with Soulja style. But more prominent still, when you're fresh in the industry and you already got a dance adapted by someone as professional as Beyonce Knowles, then you know something is special within you. That's exactly what's happening to Soulja whose music video for the song is slated to come August 10. » more
