Baton Rouge sensation switches to Motown from Atlantic Records, where YB released four studio albums.
NBA Young Boy – Release of album
Given that Motown, which is part of the Universal Music Group, houses YB’s Never Broke Again collection for releases as part of a global joint venture agreement struck last year, there was already some familiarity with Motown.
The Never Broke Again group has already had two albums issued by Motown, and on Friday, October 28, they will release their third album, Nightmare on 38th Street.
YoungBoy’s shift to Motown
NBA YoungBoy’s shift to Motown will be formalised in 2023, when he plans to release music on the label. He has already achieved four top 10 projects on the Billboard 200, which is more than any other artist in 2022, so for the time being, he will keep flooding the streets through Atlantic.
Variety reports that although the agreement’s parameters were kept under wraps, the bidding war was deemed to be “competitive.” Earlier this year, YoungBoy made hints about signing with Birdman’s Cash Money Records for $60 million, but it appears that agreement has fallen through.
Ma’ I Got A Family mixtape
Nicki Minaj and Yeat contributed to NBA YoungBoy’s Ma’ I Got A Family mixtape, which was released last week and was produced by DJ Drama.
He will have surpassed JAY-Z on the list of musicians that have the most entries on the Billboard 200 chart if the project reaches the Billboard 200, which is widely expected to happen. Hov and YoungBoy are presently tied with 25 entries each.
The 23-year-old has pledged to deliver a whole 10 projects to fans before 2022 ends, so he doesn’t appear to be planning to slow down just yet.
He accompanied a screenshot of an iPhone Note that read, “Fun challenge ’10 cassettes 1 year??'” with, “I’m finna be on 6 you think I can do it?”
According to Luminate, the YB album has received 29.04 billion on-demand streams in the US.
