Single & video available now

Atlanta-based Grammy nominated Queen Of Da Souf rapper Latto drops turn-up anthem “FTCU” featuring Grammy nominated GloRilla & Gangsta Boo via RCA Records. Directed by maliaSHUTup, the accompanying visual shows Latto and Glo showing out and going up in the club. This release follows Latto garnering two Grammy nominations for Best New Artist and Melodic Rap Performance for “Big Energy (Live).” Recently, the 3x AMA nominee and 4x VMA nominee also presented at both respective shows in addition to being announced with the honor of the Breakthrough Artist Award for the 2022 Variety Hitmakers.

In March of this year Latto released her critically acclaimed album 777 that debuted in the top 20 at No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 200 chart and top 10 at No. 6 on the Billboard Top Rap Albums chart. Her latest project includes the electric single “Wheelie” featuring 21 Savage, her top 10 Billboard-charting hit single “Big Energy” (plus the “Big Energy (Remix)” with Mariah Carey and DJ Khaled) and her melodic track “Soufside,” which paid homage to her roots in ATL. Latto also released “Pussy,” a reply to the overturning of Roe v. Wade. She recently went on her first headlining tour this past year, the 777 Tour, and she just wrapped up being a guest on Lizzo’s The Special Tour, which has a second leg starting next year that she’s already confirmed for as a guest.

For the past two years and counting, Latto’s made it known that she’s the one you bitches hate, but they can’t get past. To start off 2021 , Latto released “The Biggest,” the first official release under her new moniker, which explained the 23-year-old rapper’s reasoning for the stage name change, her intentions and moving forward with this new phase of her career. Following that with the release of her hit RIAA-certified 2x Platinum single “Big Energy” in September 2021 has made Latto inescapable. She went on to make history with the single as the first female rapper to ever have a No. 1 record at pop, rhythm and urban radio with the same single. Overall, she’s also the first female artist in 12 years to accomplish this feat, joining the company of Rihanna (“Rude Boy”), Alicia Keys (“No One”), Beyoncé (“Irreplaceable”), Mary J. Blige (“Be Without You”) and Mariah Carey (“We Belong Together”), the last five to previously achieve this.

With over one billion streams worldwide across all platforms and accolades continuing to rack up from her success, it’s clear that Latto has set the stage to become a global superstar.
