Gucci Mane, Bruno Mars, and Kodak Black have released the new music video to their hit collab single “Wake Up In The Sky” from Gucci Mane’s forthcoming album Evil Genius due out later this year. The video, directed by Bruno Mars, and the track, produced by Bruno Mars, DY, Tre and Tarentino, mark the first collaboration between the three labelmates. “Wake Up In The Sky” comes on the heels of Gucci Mane’s previous release, “Kept Back” featuring Lil Pump, which the two rappers performed during this year’s BET Hip Hop Awards.
Evil Genius 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.”
Currently featured in GQ’s September issue, Gucci Mane will hit the road on the “Unusual Suspects Tour” alongside Carnage and Smokepurpp this fall – kicking off next month. Gucci Mane recently attended the 2018 VMAs where he presented the award for “Best Collaboration.” 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.
