Atlantic recording artist Gucci Mane has officially announced today’s release of his eagerly awaited new mixtape. “DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR” includes the recently released singles, “Love Thru The Computer (Feat. Justin Bieber),” “Backwards (Feat. Meek Mill),” and “Proud Of You,” all available for individual streaming and download. In addition, both “Backwards (Feat, Meek Mill)” and “Proud Of You” have been joined by new companion videos, streaming now at the official Gucci Mane YouTube channel HERE.
“DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR” arrives hot on the heels of last year’s acclaimed “EVIL GENIUS,” available for streaming and download HERE. The album includes such hit singles as “I’m Not Goin’ (Feat. Kevin Gates)” and “Solitaire (Feat. Migos & Lil Yachty).” The two tracks are accompanied by hugely popular companion videos: “Solitaire (Feat. Migos & Lil Yachty)” currently boasts close to 11 million individual YouTube views HERE, while the “I’m Not Goin’ (Feat. Kevin Gates)” visual has drawn more than 13 million views HERE.
As if that weren’t enough, “EVIL GENIUS” also includes the blockbuster single, “Wake Up In The Sky,” alongside Bruno Mars and Kodak Black, available now for streaming and download HERE. The track’s official companion video, directed by Mars, has proven a true phenomenon, now with over 270 million individual views HERE.
Gucci Mane heralded the arrival of “EVIL GENIUS” with a high-profile TV appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! (streaming HERE), featuring live performances of “I’m Not Goin’” – joined by Kevin Gates – as well as the album-opening highlight, “Off The Boat.”
“EVIL GENIUS” marks Gucci Mane’s first full-length release since his prolific 2017 culminated with the acclaimed “EL GATO: THE HUMAN GLACIER.” That album followed the RIAA gold certified “MR. DAVIS,” highlighted by the 3x platinum hit single, “I Get The Bag (Feat. Migos),” recently certified platinum by the RIAA and joined by a massively popular companion video, now boasting over 376 million views at Gucci Mane’s official YouTube channel alone.
“MR. DAVIS” was preceded in May 2017 by “DROPTOPWOP,” featuring the blockbuster single, “Met Gala (Feat. Offset).” Produced by Metro Boomin, the mixtape has been included on a number of year-end lists, among them Noisey’s “The 100 Best Albums of 2017” and Complex’s “The Best Albums of 2017” which hailed the collection as Gucci’s “most darkly compelling collection songs in years – and easily his tightest project.”
Among his many high profile media appearances, Gucci Mane – who presented “Best Collaboration” at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards – has been cover star for an array of publications, including GQ and The New York Times Magazine’s March 2018 “25 Songs That Tell us Where Music Is Going” feature.
