American hip hop recording artist from Mobile, Alabama, Jeremy Biddle, known professionally as Yung Bleu release a new song ‘Shoe Box’ featuring Jeezy off his aticipated album project “Moon Boy.” Expected July 23, 2021.
The Alabama native will take the show on the road when his “Moon Boy Tour” kicks off Aug. 26 in Minneapolis. The 38-date North American trek runs through Oct. 9 in Seattle. Moneybagg Yo and Kodak Black team up on “Angels Never Cry,” while Chris Brown and 2 Chainz join Bleu on “Baddest,” for which he also released a video. Two artists that didn’t make the album are Chloe Bailey and Wale. According to Yung Bleu, his former label Columbia Records didn’t clear the songs.
Three singles were released before the album. The lead single, a remix of Bleu’s October 2020 single, “You’re Mines Still,” featuring Drake, was released on October 16, 2020. The second single, “Baddest,” a collaboration with Chris Brown and 2 Chainz, was released on June 11, 2021. The third and final single, “Way More Close (Stuck In A Box),” featuring Big Sean, was released on July 9, 2021. On July 6, 2021, Bleu revealed the album’s title, release date, and cover art. The tracklist then showed on the vinyl edition on July 14, 2021.
In addition to the platinum-certified hit “You’re Mines Still” with Drake, the star-studded set includes appearances from John Legend, H.E.R., Kehlani, and Big Sean. The 15 tracks also feature Jeezy, Davido, Gunna, and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie. The anticipation for the song began when Chloe Bailey shared a cover of “You’re Mines Still.” The brief cover went viral and Yung Bleu extended an invitation to work on music together. Shortly after, Bailey, Bleu, and Wale were sharing snippets of themselves in the studio together.
The artist, unfortunately, aired his grievances out this past week when he didn’t end up getting nominated for Best New Artist at the BET Awards. Surely, most people were confused by his exclusion, given that he’s had just as good of a year as any of the other nominees, if not better.
