Towards the middle of last month, Rae Sremmurd superstar Swae Lee released two high-profile singles: “Won’t Be Late” featuring Drake and “Sextasy.” Now, Swae Lee is supporting and promoting the latter record by sharing its Chuck Grant- and Mike WiLL-helmed visual component.
Notably, “Sextasy” and its accompanying music video are being used to promote Swae Lee’s forthcoming solo album. Announced on Nick Cannon’s Power 106 radio show, Swae Lee’s new LP will reportedly drop before he embarks on his next major tour with Post Malone.
“By the middle of last year, I had put out so many songs that did good, but people were forgetting [about them],” Swae Lee shared with Billboard last December, opening up about the progression of his solo career. “It’s like they were trying to sleep on me. But that’s the natural cycle in the game: New, temporary artists come in, people think they’re amazing, and then they forget about the real artists and all the big shit going on. But I had to keep making songs and being consistent, just to remind them. A lot of people didn’t even know my full talents — they classified me as a rapper. Slim Jxmmi and my gang knew what I could do, so it was time for me to unleash everything.”
