Multi-platinum recording artist Kevin Gates has announced the release of a new track, “Still Hold Up.”
Produced by longtime Gates collaborator Patrick Carmelo (“Pride,” “Find You Again”), “Still Hold Up” follows Gates’ recent blockbuster freestyle, “Always Be Gangsta.” Gates first unleashed the track – which now boasts over 4.5 million streams and counting – during an extraordinary appearance on Apple Music’s Beats 1 producer Charlie Sloth’s Fire In The Booth freestyle format.
As if that weren’t enough, 2020 has also seen the official release of one of Gates’ most personal tracks thus far, the powerfully romantic “Dreka.” Named for his wife, manager, business partner, and mother of his two children – affectionately known as#bossmaynedrek – is accompanied by a very special official visualizer.
Gates’ recent string of new music follows last year’s critically acclaimed blockbuster LP, “I’m Him,” available via Bread Winners Association at all music retailers and streaming services. The album proved a sensation upon its September 2019 release, arriving at #1 on both Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” and “Digital Albums” charts while also debuting among the top 5 on the overall SoundScan/Billboard 200 – Gates’ fourth top 10 debut thus far.
In addition, Gates recently teamed with VICE to launch1-800-KEVIN: The Kevin Gates Helpline, an inspirational new web series – co-hosted with lifetime best friend OG Boobie Black – offering advice and positivity to fans for everything that life throws at them.
