Toronto artist Friyie has been having a great year, and has been making great moves to push his career forward.
His latest release is the featureless 9-track Before the Flight which was released through the ANF Collective on June 26, 2020. The project made a prominent debut on the iTunes Canada Hip-Hop/Rap charts, and has seen strong numbers on other platforms as well including Spotify. Just recently, Before the Flight passed the 400K stream count, and currently sits just over 420K streams, and counting.
Before the Flight follows Friyie’s 2019 ANF: Ain’t Nothing Free and was preceded by official singles “Paper Cuts” and “Dividends.” Fri also dropped two other tracks that we’re featured om the project including the D1wav-assisted “Kente Cloth” which just passed 150K streams on Spotify, and the more recent “Elastics” which is just shy of the 50K mark. A video for “Kente Cloth” was posted to popular UK platform GRM Daily on June 14 and has been viewed just shy of 60K times since.
In terms of Before the Flight videos, so far Friyie has dropped videos for the Visual BLVD-powered “Ride With a Real One,” the RXSH Hour Film and CA Cinematics-powered “Flawless,” and the most recent, “Paper Cuts,” directed by Justin Serran.
The new project is available on various digital streaming platforms including Apple Music, Spotify, and TIDAL.
In other Friyie news, the “Money Team” rapper recently changed his Instagram name to ANF2⏳, suggesting the project sequel is on the way. He also posted in May with the caption: “#ANF2 Coming Soon.”
