Undeniably one of the definitive voices coming out of the Houston music scene, Yung Pooda continues his steady ascent to the top with his new infectious single, “Drop.” Produced by Grammy-winning duo Cool & Dre, “Drop” is available on all music-based platforms today via It’s A 10 Records HERE.
The new song is already showing signs of being a bonafide hit. His hometown, Houston’s top hip-hop radio station, 97.9 KBXX, known as The Box, will premiere the record this Friday at 3PM. “Drop” finds the Houston-based artist back in his hit-making element with an up-beat offering that exemplifies his sleek signature style with a lyrical punch. The offering features a sample from Ice Cube’s iconic, “Today Was a Good Day.”
The braggadocious banger arrives on the heels of his most decorated single to date, “Forever Tippin” featuring DJ Chose. Since its 2021 release, “Forever Tippin” charted on Billboard’s Mainstream R&B/ Hip Hop Airplay Charts and was the #1 most added record at Urban Radio. To date, the official video has garnered 5+ million views on YouTube and the positive responses to the song resulted in Yung Pooda being the #2 most discovered artist on Shazam—a significant benchmark that few independent artists can claim.
With each release, Yung Pooda has continued to gain new fans and reach new heights with his music and riveting performances: he performed on BET’s Hip Hop Awards Rap City Special (Watch: BET Hip Hop Awards) relaunch and most recently on an episode of YO! MTV Raps Wild ‘N Out. Pooda has also demonstrated the depth and range of his lyrical caliber and versatility of his flow with a tantalizing freestyle he performed in studio via AMPD Official where his spin on Moneybagg Yo’s, “Said Sum” went viral.
The Houston hit-maker is poised to make a bigger mark in the 2022 musical landscape with “Drop” and much more to come.
