YG REVEALS NEW MAY 24th RELEASE DATE FOR 4REAL 4REAL, VIA DEF JAM RECORDINGS
NEW SINGLE “GO LOKO” NETS YG CAREER-HIGH STREAMING TOTALS WITH OVER 30 MILLION PLAYS & 15 MILLION VIEWS
YG FOLLOWS UP ‘BOACHELLA’ TRIUMPH WITH ROLLING LOUD FEST IN MIAMI; BETX SET FOR JUNE 21st DURING 19th ANNUAL BET AWARDS WEEKEND
Multi-platinum Bompton-based rapper YG reveals a newly scheduled May 24th release date of 4REAL 4REAL, his aptly-titled fourth album via Def Jam Recordings. The new album features YG’s brand new single “Go Loko” featuring Tyga and Jon Z. Both join YG in the viral VIDEO, which premiered in advance of Cinco de Mayo weekend and has over 15 million views to date, YG biggest-ever music video launch. The track – with over 30 million streams to date – boasts career-high streaming totals for YG, as the artist continues to see new peaks in popularity.
The countdown to the release of 4REAL 4REAL is on as YG stole the show at this past weekend’s Rolling Loud Festival in Miami. He is confirmed to perform at the BETX Experience on Friday June 21st, alongside Meek Mill, as part of the 19th annual BET Awards at L.A. Live, the weekend of June 20-24th. And he took the outdoor stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week for a performance of “Go Loko” with Tyga and Jon Z. Watch their live performance HERE (which has earned over 1 million views).
YG recently made his performance debut, as second bill headliner, over both weekends of ‘Boachella,’ with surprise guests 2 Chainz, Big Sean, A$AP Rocky, Ty Dolla $ign and Tyga, hailed by the Los Angeles Times as “…One of the fest’s finest rap sets to date.”
The arrival of 4REAL 4REAL builds on the extraordinary year that YG experienced in 2018, centering on the August release of his third album, Stay Dangerous, Top 5 follow-up to his critically acclaimed Still Brazy (2016), hailed by the New York Times as “an artisanal, proletarian Los Angeles gangster rap record.” Stay Dangerous was preceded by its first official single release in June, the double-platinum #1 smash “Big Bank” featuring Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz and Big Sean, one of the biggest singles successes of YG’s entire career.
