YoungBoy Never Broke Again has teamed up with fellow rap superstar, Nicki Minaj for their new single, “WTF” today via Never Broke Again / Motown Records. Frequent collaborators since 2020’s “What That Speed Bout,” the duo’s third single doubles as a warning to ops in the industry, hangers-on, and internet trolls. The track is taken from YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s forthcoming sixth album, Don’t Try This At Home, due April 21.
“Who the fuck these new faces? Around inside my business,” YoungBoy raps over a bluesy guitar line and infectious beat. “I don’t remember that face at all, they weren’t with me in the trenches.” When Minaj chimes in, she makes it clear where she stands. “Cross YoungBoy then you cross the queen, all them internet games turn boys to memes,” the hitmaker warns. “Keep sleeping on the team, we gon’ pause your dreams.”
“WTF” follows recent singles “Next” and “Demon Party,” which will all feature on the 23-year-old’s forthcoming sixth studio album Don’t Try This At Home, due April 21. 2023 has been a typically prolific year for the rapper, who only dropped his previous project, I Rest My Case, in January. That album became YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s fifth consecutive top 10 hit on the Billboard 200 when it debuted at #9.
With more than 30 billion total streams and 109 RIAA-certified releases including three platinum or double platinum albums, YoungBoy Never Broke Again is one of hip-hop’s heaviest hitters. He is particularly dominant on YouTube where he is the #1 most-streamed artist of all time with more than 12 billion views. As the rapper readies the next chapter of his career, “WTF” is a reminder that he’s only just getting started.
