Following the Billboard Hot 100 success of his GloRilla-assisted “On What U On” and a minor delay to avoid the splashy release of Taylor Swift’s Midnights (The Til Dawn Edition), Moneybagg Yo has finally unleashed his Hard to Love: Heartless Edition mixtape.
Originally slated for a May 26 release, Hard to Love boasts pre-release singles such as “Quickie,” “Ocean Spray” and the aforementioned “On What U On,” which peaked at No. 56 on the Hot 100. Hard to Love serves as Moneybagg Yo’s first project since 2021’s A Gangsta’s Pain. The Memphis rapper’s fourth studio album became his first to top the Billboard 200, and boasted several Hot 100 hits, including “Wockesha” (No. 20), the Future-featuring “Hard for the Next” (No. 49) and “Time Today” (No. 31).
The Grammy-nominated rapper has always been a vulnerable lyricist, and fans can expect even more depth on Hard to Love. In an Instagram caption, the “Said Sum” rapper stressed that Hard to Love is “for [his] core fans, the streets! Not the industry.”
Moneybagg Yo has earned 27 Hot 100 hits, and five of his projects have reached the top 10 of the Billboard 200.
