Budding star SAFE has taken his hustle to new heights. 2019 has proven to be quite a successful year for the Toronto recording artist and there’s still a ton of new music on the way.
On the heels of the release of his own new highly anticipated project, Stay, SAFE is now one of several guest appearances on the new album from Compton-based rapper YG, 4Real 4Real (Def Jam Recordings/Universal Music Canada). The alt-R&B singer is featured on “Play Too Much,” produced by 1-O.A.K.
Other guest features on the project include, in order of appearance, Tyga, Jon Z, Valee, Boogie, Meek Mill, Arin Ray, Rose Gold, Kamaiyah, G-Eazy, RJ, Mitch, Ty Dolla Sign, Day Sulan, DaBaby.
“At the mere age of 21, SAFE has utilized his love of true R&B and soul music, influences from his Eritrean roots, and his pure, raw talent to catapult his career from working at the OVO store and making music with Halal Gang, to now being on the top of the Billboard and iTunes charts on a song with Khalid and with his own solo project.”
4Real 4Real is YG’s fourth studio album to date and follows a high profile appearance on Ellen where he performed his hit single “Go Loko” (with Tyga and Jon Z).
The new album builds on the extraordinary year that the multi-platinum YG experienced in 2018, centering on the August release of his third album, Stay Dangerous, Top 5 follow-up to his critically acclaimed Still Brazy, hailed by the New York Times as “an artisanal, proletarian Los Angeles gangster rap record.”
The certified gold album Stay Dangerous was preceded by its first official single release in June, the triple-Platinum #1 smash “Big Bank” featuring Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz and Big Sean. It’s already one of the biggest single successes of YG’s career.
With his single “Go Loko,” YG is looking at one of the biggest records of his career, as the single has topped over 40 million streams in its first two weeks out. The viral “Go Loko” video has over 20 million views to date.
The latest video released in support of the album is for the DJ Mustard-produced “In The Dark.” Check it out below.
“After facing an entire bottle of tequila, YG travels to hell and does battle with the demons that await him. Some of them can dance really well, even when they’re covered in blood.”
