Lil Uzi Vert is one music act who has grown his following and his songs and collaborative verses will get you talking. The rapper tells Billboard Magazine that his most viral hit, “XO Tour Llif3” was released on Soundcloud in a group of songs that were “just throwaways” while he was on tour with Bryson Tiller and The Weeknd.

“All of a sudden we see a giant amount of streams coming in, so we raced to get the record out on the proper digital streaming platforms,” Julie Greenwald, Atlantic Records chairman and COO adds. “It exploded. I mean, there was no one in here who said, “That song’s going to stream 20-odd million times in the first week. We’re good, but not that good.”

Uzi follows up saying, “I was speaking authentic on “XO Tour Llif3.” Anyone can relate: I was in a dark space, so I went with it. That’s how I made the album. I just got that feeling: These are the songs, that’s it.”
