AboutGloRilla:

In the Spring of 2022, the world got their first real taste of femme fatale GloRilla on her viral hit single “FNF (Let’s Go)”. The track not only became the song of the summer with over 44 million Youtube views, 23 million spotify streams and boast a remix featuring Latto and JT–  but also gave us a glimpse of the rhythmic and intoxicating skills GloRilla possesses. She followed up “FNF (Let’s Go)” with another hit single, “Tomorrow 2” featuring hip-hop heavy weight Cardi B. The track  debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, #1 on Apple music and has accumulated over 25 million Youtube views in just 3 weeks. GloRilla’s rapid success has garnered her the “Breakthrough Artist” Award at the 2022 BET HipHop Awards and an American Music Awards Nomination for “Favorite Female Hip-Hop Artist”.

Born and raised in the North Memphis neighborhood of Frayser, Tennessee, Glo first started rapping in high school, inspired by Chicago’s Drill movement with Chief Keef at the helm. She worked odd jobs over the years, rapping on the side, before dedicating all of her time to rapping in 2021—dropping cuts like “Westside Baby” and “Gang Nem” along the way. 2022 has been a landmark year for Glo, following her featured bars on “FNF (Let’s Go), her growing success reached the ears of  CMG figurehead Yo Gotti, who readily took her under his wing and signed her to his label.  Glo is gearing up for a busy Fall, with the release of her debut EP “Anyway’s, Life’s Great…” dropping November 11th. The sky is the limit for the Memphis Princess, as she navigates the start of her career and is headed straight to stardom.
