Lil Yachty ‘Michigan Boy Boat’ Album

Featuring rappers from Detroit and Flint, Lil Yachty’s new mixtape, ‘Michigan Boy Boat,’ is out now! And trust us, it’s 40 minutes of pure fire. In between developing a heist movie based on the card game Uno, a series for HBO Max, diving into crypto currency, partnering with Reese’s Puffs cerealremixing the ‘Saved by the Bell’ theme song, and becoming a TikTok fave, let’s just say he’s been busy.

LILHUDDY “America’s Sweetheart”

LILHUDDY (aka Chase Hudson) released a brand-new song and accompanying music video, starring TikToker Charli D’Amelio. “America’s Sweetheart” is a departure from his first two singles, showcasing a softer side to Chase’s artistry. Powerfully emotional in both his lyrics and instrumentation, the track highlights the vulnerability he implements into his music.

“This is the most personal song I have written and released to date. It was inspired by the worst night of my life and all of the emotions I felt as I overcame such a difficult time. I’m looking forward to sharing a more vulnerable side of myself and hope this song can help anyone else going through a challenging time as well.” – Chase
