Today, Atlanta rap-crooner YFN Lucci releases his introspective album Wish Me Well 3 on Think It’s A Game Records/Warner Records. Best known as a Southern hitmaker, Lucci grows into a deep and versatile artist on this record — a rapper with soul, heart, humor, and wisdom. Get it HERE.Wish Me Well 3 feels like a passing of the crown. Legendary DJ Bigga Rankin serves as Lucci’s muse throughout, offering sage advice and preparing him for the bright lights. Lucci stares down that stardom, sometimes reveling in it, other times struggling with its demons. On bluesy songs like “Man Down,” “Back And Forth,” and pensive single “September 7th,” Lucci pours out his soul. “I swear I used to have a heart, it went ghost on me,” he raps on the latter track. A slew of diaristic Southern MCs join him, from legends like Jeezy and Boosie to promising up-and-comers like Yungeen Ace and Jackboy. Elsewhere, Lucci leans into the sensual and seductive —the “Wet” remix returns in all its X-rated glory, while “Both Of Us” is a lush tapestry of R&B featuring Rick Ross and Layton Greene. In the companion video, directed by Edgar Esteves, YFN Lucci showers love on his leading lady, Reginae Carter. Watch it HERE.“Wet” was a defining moment for Lucci, who’s been on a tear all year. The song quickly racked up 100 million TikTok views, 135 million streams, and 23 million YouTube views on the music video. Plus, it emerged as the #1 most-added song at Urban Radio upon arrival. He cranked up the NSFW-ness with the “Wet” Remix with the “Queen of Da Souf” herself Mulatto, as well a WET Remix Pack featuring Bigga Rankin, Jada Kingdom, and more. Wish Me Well 3 showcases the multitudes within YFN Lucci, who can seamlessly weave a club record like “Wet” into a stirring, sobering body of work.
In the world of music (or any artistic field for that matter), one of the biggest challenges, and most significant things for any creative to do is to find their voice. This task can be harder and harder today with the amount of sheer noise (and access to it) at large. Yet, people somehow persevere and YFN Lucci is one of the living proofs of this, blessed with the confidence in his own sound.
His seventh mixtape is filled with a great amount of heat that’s undeniable. Laced with a ripping 21 records, The Atlanta rapper has secured musical contributions from acts like Boosie Badazz, Rick Ross, Jeezy, Yo Gotti, Mozzy, Mulatto and more.
