Yo Gotti Signs GloRilla To CMG Records

The news comes as her hit single “FNF” has been in the Billboard Top 100 for 5 weeks in a row.

GloRilla is here to stay! On July 5, the rapper officially became a part of CMG Records, Yo Gotti’s record label.

The news comes as the rapper recently gained mainstream recognition for her hit single “FNF” released last Spring. The track has been on the Billboard Top 100 chart for the fifth week in a row, with rappers such as Saweetie being rumored to jump on a potential remix.

GloRilla is joining the roster of artists making up CMG Records, which includes Moneybagg Yo, 42 Dugg, EST Gee, Blac Youngsta, Blocboy JB, and more. GloRilla is the fifth artist to be signed to the record label this year, according to Complex. R&B artist Lehla Samia, rapper Lil Poppa, 10Percent, and Mozzy are recent signees. 

“GloRilla is a natural-born star – she has a different sound and approach that’s needed in hip-hop right now,” Yo Gotti told Billboard. “It’s one of the quickest rises that I’ve seen in my career because she only dropped in late-April and now she has the hottest cultural records in music. Glo is hungry for success and determined to win. We look forward to watching her grow as an artist and reach her full potential.”

GloRilla shared the news on social media. In a video, she is seen boarding Yo Gotti’s private jet alongside friends. Aboard the plane, Yo Gotti hands her a contract, a chain, and a bag filled with cash. The bag was filled with $500,000, according to Complex.

“I’ve put in years of hard work to get this point and I’m blessed to sign with the hottest label in music with CMG,” she told Billboard. “I manifested this moment and trusted my talent even when others didn’t. I’m grateful for Gotti for believing in me and I’m not gonna let up. Trust that I have more new heat on the way.”

On Instagram, she added that she was proud to be “the first female rap artist on the label.” Congratulations GloRilla!
