Trendsetter is so excited to be working with rapper ILoveMakonnen on his latest single, “Spendin’ (feat. Gucci Mane).”
As his first official release in over a year, the Grammy-nominated multi platinum singer, rapper, and innovator set out to create a song that was one thing─ fun. With an upbeat vibe and an infectious beat, the Warner Bros Records signee did just that, rapping about fancy cars and the seemingly endless luxuries money can buy.
He says, “I made ‘Spendin’ to be a fun song that you can play anywhere. It’s about spending money on things you love and spending time with people who hate you. People always like to hate when you’re spending.”
ILoveMakonnen teams up with megastar Gucci Mane on the track, who jumps in for a verse. “Spendin’” follows their previous collaborations, “Cash Cash” and “Take it Easy.”
More new music from ILoveMakonnen will follow in 2019.
Since 2014, singer, rapper, and artist ILoveMakonnen has engaged and enchanted listeners everywhere with his psychedelic musical patchwork of hip-hop, indie, and alternative. This maverick first made international waves with “Tuesday (feat. Drake),” garnering his first RIAA Platinum plaque, earning a GRAMMY® Award nomination for “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration,” and racking up 150 million Spotify streams and counting. He’s followed up that breakout success with a string of energetic anthems, including 2017’s Mike WiLL Made-It-produced “Love (feat. Rae Sremmurd),” which earned widespread acclaim from Pitchfork and The New York Times to The Fader and VIBE, and was featured by Billboard as one of the “100 Best Songs of 2017.”
Most recently, ILoveMakonnen collaborated with close friend Lil Peep before he passed away in late 2017, co-writing the track “Sunlight On Your Skin” that became Lil Peep and XXXTENTACION’s posthumous hit “Falling Down.” Having self-released several EPs over the course of the last year, ILoveMakonnen is now returning to the spotlight on the Gucci Mane-assisted “Spendin’.”
