Billboard music awarding winning hip-hop artist, Silentó releases his long-awaited debut album Fresh Outta High School. The 12-track project features stand out singles “Thinking About You,” “Wild,” and “Talk To Me.”
Since bursting onto the hip-hop scene with his global hit, “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” in 2015, rapper Silentó has blossomed into an international music sensation. The 20-year-old Atlanta, Georgia native has spent the past three years touring the world and working on his new album. Fresh Outta High School celebrates Silentó’s meteoric rise in the music industry and showcases his eclectic musical tastes.
Fresh Outta High School draws inspiration from a wide-range of musical genres such as hip-hop, pop, dancehall, and electronic. Tracks like “Rumors,” “Numbers,” and “Loving You” all have heavy pop/electronic resonance. “Issa Vibe” and “Watch Me Part 2” are reminiscent to Silentó’s earlier sound. The fun, youthful tone of Fresh Outta High School was recognized by the renowned hip-hop publication The Source, who shared an exclusive stream of the project last week.
Silentó proves that he’s more than a one-hit wonder with Fresh Outta High School. Songwriter, producer, and engineer, J’Rell The Inkkwell is at the helm of the production on the project. The Atlanta-based producer has collaborated with the Grammy award winning production duo J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League (Rick Ross, 2Chainz, Gucci Mane) and creates a diverse soundscape for listeners. Silentó’s lyrical content is comparable to popular artists like Rae Sremmurd, Chance The Rapper, and Jeremih. On “Wild” he raps, “Send the dates in a contract/Need em I need em need racks/I’m giving back to the community/This the way we show unity.”
The music video for his third single, “Talk To Me” was featured on XXL. They wrote, “After jumping into the game with such a big splash, Silentó has more success in sight.” “Talk To Me” has nearly 1 million views since debuting in June. At just 20 years old Silentó displays tremendous range as an artist on his debut studio album. The self-proclaimed, Mr. Billion Views will surprise fans and naysayers with the 12-track project.
Silentó’s debut studio album, Fresh Outta High School is available now on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Tidal, Amazon Music, and Google Play. For more information about Silentó please refer to the social media links below.
