Gucci Mane is back with his newest single release, “Wake Up In The Sky,” alongside Bruno Mars and Kodak Black. This marks the first collaboration between the three labelmates. “Wake Up In The Sky,” produced by Bruno Mars, DY, Tre and Tarentino, comes off the heels of last month’s “Kept Back” featuring Lil Pump. Both tracks, as well as spring’s release of “Solitaire” featuring Migos, will be featured on Gucci Mane’s forthcoming studio album “Evil Genius.”
Today’s new release follows Gucci Mane’s most recent album “El Gato: The Human Glacier,” which was the follow up to the 2017 Gold certified studio album “Mr. Davis,” featuring 3x platinum smash hit single “I Get The Bag” ft. Migos. “Mr. Davis” followed the May 2017 release of “DROPTOPWOP,” highlighted by the blockbuster single, “Met Gala (Feat. Offset).” Produced by Metro Boomin, the mixtape was included on a number of year-end lists, among them Noisey’s “The 100 Best Albums of 2017” and Complex’s “The Best Albums of 2017” which hailed the collection as Gucci Mane’s “most darkly compelling collection songs in years – and easily his tightest project.”
Gucci Mane is currently featured in GQ’s September issue and recently presented the “Best Collaboration” award at the 2018 VMAs. Back in March, Gucci Mane covered one of four exclusive covers of The New York Times Magazine for their “25 Songs That Tell us Where Music Is Going” spread.
