YEAT ANNOUNCES NEW SINGLE “MY WRIST” WITH YOUNG THUG OUT FRIDAY, MAY 26
Yeat announced the new single “My Wrist” on his socials yesterday.
This is the second collaboration between the duo, following “Outside” from Yeat’s prior album 2 Alivë.
25 MAY 2023 (TORONTO, ON) — Fresh off his explosive North American tour and ahead of a run of European festival dates, rap phenomenon Yeat has teamed up with superstar Young Thug for new single “My Wrist.” Produced by Pi’erre Bourne, the track threads dissonance and distortion together into an undeniably bouncy beat while Thug and Yeat careen through their verses. Dotted with the duo’s signature ad-libs, the song is as propulsive as one would expect from the superstar collaboration.
“My Wrist” comes in the wake of AftërLyfe, Yeat’s acclaimed album from earlier this year. The record-shattering album marked Yeat’s highest album debut to date at #4 on the Billboard 200 chart. Receiving an impressive 30M global streams within the first 24 hours alone, the album release was also Yeat’s largest streaming day for his entire catalog with a staggering 60M total combined streams. The blockbuster project, which currently has all 22 tracks surpassing 1M streams on Spotify, sold nearly 55,000 album equivalent units in its first week of release.
After breaking through in 2021 when “Gët Busy” exploded on TikTok, Yeat earned co-signs from the likes of Drake, Lil Uzi Vert, and Young Thug — and quickly amassed superstar-worthy statistics of his own. In 2022, he clocked more than two billion streams and sold more than 2.1 albums globally, cementing his spot among rap heavyweights whose career will only continue to ascend as the years go on. Recently, he had his highest album debut to date with AftërLyfe at #4 on the Billboard 200 chart. Receiving an impressive 28M streams within the first 24 hours alone, the album release was also Yeat’s largest streaming day for his entire catalog with a staggering 60M total combined streams. AftërLyfe marks Yeat’s third entry into the Top 10, with previous projects Up 2 Me at #6 and Lyfë at #10.
