Republic Records signee Coi Leray is taking over TikTok and social media with her single, “No More Panties.” After dropping a remix featuring Lil Durk last month, the Atlanta rapper says its overwhelming watching her song climb up the Billboard Hot 100 chart week by week.
“My label is happy, my fans are happy and the world is starting to know me for me and who I am as an artist,” Coi tells ESSENCE. “It feels like I’m getting closer to being a major, major superstar.”
“No More Parties” was released at the end of January and was recently certified Gold by the RIAA this week. The track currently sits at #26 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, which in part helped earn Coi the title of Billboard’s R&B/Hip Hop Rookie of the Month.
Coi Leray followed that up with her single “BIG PURR (Prdd),” featuring Memphis rapper Pooh Shiesty. Earlier this week, she played the leading lady in Mooski’s “Track Star” video.
Up next, Coi is preparing to release her debut project in May to follow up her 2020 EP, Now or Never.
“That’s what we’re aiming for. I’ve been working with so [many] people and been making so much new music,” Coi says, enthusiastically. “This is my first debut project. I’ve been saving all my platinum songs for my project. So I just can’t wait.”
She continues, “The world just needs to get ready for me to stay here and not go nowhere. The world just needs to get used to this little butt because I’m not going to stop shaking it.”
