01 MAY 2024 (TORONTO, ON) – Today, Moneybagg Yo announces the official release date for his highly anticipated forthcoming album, SPEAK NOW out Friday, May 24th via CMG/N-Less Entertainment/Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada. SPEAK NOW marks the Memphis native’s eleventh solo project, following last year’s 22-track offering Hard To Love and 2021’s A Gangsta’s Pain, which spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and earned recognition as one of the biggest hip-hop debuts of the year. SPEAK NOW represents a brand new era of Moneybagg Yo, which sees him as an artist and creative coming in to his own at the height of his career. See announcement HERE

The first single from SPEAK NOW, “BUSSIN” featuring New Orleans ascendant ROB49, released back in March kicking off the new era. “BUSSIN” was first teased in a clip posted by Moneybagg Yo doing the Ceiling Challenge - watch HERE. Upon posting, the video generated a huge reaction online, garnering over 20M views on Instagram in just 5 hours, and quickly rising to #5 on Twitter trending. Prior to “BUSSIN”, Bagg reminded fans of his knack for songwriting craft with Hard to Love, a sprawling mixtape that included engrossing tracks like “F My BM,” “Quickie,” the RIAA Gold-Certified “On Wat U On” featuring GloRilla, “Motion God,” “Keep It Low” featuring Future, and “Ocean Spray,” a track that served as the first single and received support from Rolling Stone, Billboard, XXL, The FADER, and more. 

In just a few years, Bagg has cemented himself as one of the most versatile voices in hip-hop — a rapper’s rapper with an ear to the club and the streets. Beyond the undying love he receives from his hometown, he’s been celebrated by critics and fellow rappers alike. He has been nominated for Billboard Music Awards and iHeartRadio Awards, received acclaim from publications like Pitchfork and the New York Times, seen his collaboration with Yo Gotti, Mozzy, and Lil Poppa, “Big League,” chosen as the official song of the 2022 NBA Finals, and collaborated with A-list stars including Future, Lil Durk, Polo G, GloRilla and many more. 

Much of Moneybagg Yo’s appeal is in the way he effortlessly blends street sensibilities with the glow up of a modern trap star. Since breaking through in 2016, he’s gone on to quickly become one of the most celebrated rappers in his generation and beyond. In 2021, the Memphis native hit a major career highlight securing his first No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 chart with critically acclaimed project, A Gangsta’s Pain. The album, which moved over 110K units during its first week of release and earned the title of one of the biggest hip-hop debuts of the year, was also No. 1 on the Top R&B / Hip-Hop Albums chart and Top Rap Albums chart in the first week. This also marked Bagg’s eleventh time charting, and specifically his fifth release to peak within the Top 10. Now, he is RIAA certified 3X platinum for both “Wockesha” and “Time Today”, and certified platinum for “Go” (with Big30) A Gangsta’s Pain and Time Served. All these accolades and more prove that Moneybagg Yo has earned his spot as a respected rap titan at the peak of his powers.
