Critical Praise:

“Eerie, bright and hyper-violent, [‘Envy Me’] revels in the dichotomy of Calboy’s delivery and is one of the reasons it’s an off-kilter hit.” – Rolling Stone

“Not only had Calboy improved his melodic delivery and descriptive storytelling, but the track’s somber piano-driven beat felt like the perfect accompaniment for his emotive vocals.” Pitchfork

The Video:

Last week, Chicago up-and-comer Calboy dropped the star-studded Wildboy EP, featuring the Platinum-selling smash “Envy Me.” Today, Calboy shares the video for “Love Me,” a heartsick new trap ballad from the project. Emoting atop echoing vox, airy synths, and thumping percussion, Calboy melodically reflects on his turbulent background, worrying that his past might keep him from finding a woman who will stand by his side: “I’ve been trapping, got this weight on me/I need time for fixing, can you wait on me?/Stay 100, never change on me.” The new video gives a glamorous glimpse into Calboy’s illicit trade, as he retreats to his trap house with his crew, counting cash and cooking weight with some femme fatales, including Chicago R&B starlet Ann Marie.

Opening with “Envy Me,” which currently sits in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 and Spotify’s US Top Charts, Wildboy is a coming-out party for the 19-year-old rapper–the moment where he transforms from a prospect to an all-star. Featuring appearances from Meek Mill, Young Thug, Yo Gotti, Lil Durk, Moneybagg Yo, and Polo G, the Wildboy EP arrives via Polo Grounds Music / RCA Records.

Profiled as one of Billboard’s 2019 Chartbreakers and currently managed by Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers Management, Calboy experienced a meteoric rise since the release of his single “Envy Melast summer. Currently sitting in the Top 40 of Billboard’s Hot 100 and Spotify’s US Top Charts, “Envy Me” is buoyantly melodic and packed with hooks, but also tinged by the violence of Calboy’s hometown. “Envy Me” racked up more than 300 million streams on all platforms, including 88 million views on its YouTube video. Recently surpassing 115 million Spotify streams, the song adds an additional 515k streams every day on the service.

The Background:

A self-taught singer and musician, Calboy started making rap music at the age of 12, influenced by the sounds of drill heroes like Lil Durk with poppier fare like Ed Sheeran. As he began to master making his own instrumentals and songs on Pro Tools, Calboy became involved with YOUmedia, the Chicago public arts program with notable alumni like Chance The Rapper. At the age of 16, Calboy started the Paper Gang Inc. imprint, with some help from his mother, and eventually his music began to catch on in Chicago, reaching the ears of G Herbo, who boosted Calboy’s single. In August 2018, Calboy shared “Envy Me,” which became a Billboard Top 40 hit off the strength of a viral dance craze. Now signed to Polo Grounds/RCA Records, Calboy is ready to take the next step on the ladder to stardom.
