GloRilla Announces The “Anyways, Life’s Great” Tour Hours After First Grammy Nomination
What a past couple of months it has been for Memphis artist Gloria Hallelujah Woods, better known as GloRilla. In July, she was offered a record deal by C.E.O./Artist Yo Gotti to be a part of his record label “Collective Music Group.” The track that took her career to new levels, “F.N.F.,” has been streamed over 50 million times on the charts since July and has officially been remixed by Latto and J.T. from the City Girls. Last month her song titled “Tomorrow 2,” featuring platinum recording artist Cardi B debuted at number 3 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart. The music video was released in September and has received 45 million views in two months. In October, GloRilla took home an award for Best Breakthrough Artist and performed at the B.E.T. Hip Hop Awards making it her television performance debut. While at the award show, she told the world that she would be releasing her Collective Music Group debut E.P. titled “Anyways, Life’s Great…” on November 11th. Earlier this week, she was featured on a new episode of the podcast “A Million Dollaz Worth Of Game” hosted by Gillie and Wallo. The episode has surpassed over 600,000 views in a few days, and clips from the interview have gone viral on social media. On Tuesday, it was announced that she received her first-ever Grammy nomination. Her hit single with HitKidd, “F.N.F.,” is nominated for “Best Rap Performance,” going up against Kendrick Lamar, Doja Cat, Gunna & Future, and more.
For an artist who is just blowing up, GloRilla has accomplished things many can’t in a long career. Although she started rapping in 2013, It wasn’t until 2018 that she dropped her first music video, “146 Freestyle“. Shortly after, she released her independent debut E.P., “Most Likely Up Next,” followed by her 2020 “P Status” project. She had been working and perfecting her craft for a while, but when she met HitKidd last year, things began to take a turn for her. She and one of her best friends, Gloss Up, the South Memphis rapper now signed to Quality Control, went to a musical showcase where they both performed and met Hitkidd. He placed the two in a group with three other female emcees, K Carbon, Slimeroni, and Aleza. After putting the collective together, HitKidd produced the girl group’s first and only project, “Set The Tone.” The notoriety from this project eventually led to her being featured on fellow Memphis artist Duke Deuce’s track titled “Just Say That,” which was released as a single for his album “Crunkstar. Shortly after, GloRilla and HitKidd cooked up the song we all love, “F.N.F.,” and the rest has been history since then.
Yesterday morning, GloRilla announced on instagram she will be embarking on her first headlining tour. The tour is named after her Collective Music Group debut EP, “Anyways, Life’s Great…”. Tour will be kicking off on January 27th, in Charlotte, North Carolina at The Underground.
