The rapper has been releasing a steady stream of new material since he was released from prison and put under house arrest.
‘Yaya’ sees the star rapping and singing entirely in Spanish and comes accompanied by a music video that sees the rapper dancing with a number of bikini-clad women. The video ends with a title screen that reads: “FOLLOW @6IX9INE IM A GOOD GUY.” Watch it below now.
6ix9ine shared the news that another track was on the way with his followers on Instagram, captioning a since-deleted video of him speaking: “NEW MUSIC VIDEO THIS FRIDAY JULY 3RD.” In the video, he spoke about his plans for his final days of house arrest and beyond.
“I have about 34 more days til house arrest is over, about 34 more days and the ankle monitor comes off and the king of New York is back on the street,” he said. “I’m gonna give you all one more music video.
“Just picture this, right. I’ve been on house arrest. I broke a whole bunch of records […] I have the Number One record in the world, from house arrest. I’ve been shooting all the music videos in my living room. I”m gonna give you all one more music video. Picture the noise I’m gonna make when I’m outside.”
His latest single ‘Trollz’, which features Nicki Minaj, scored him his first US Number One upon its release earlier this month (June 12). A portion of the proceeds from the track were donated to The Bail Project Inc, who help people on low incomes who can’t afford to pay bail.
After ‘Trollz’ hit the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, 6ix9ine boasted that he is “unstoppable”. He made the claim in a celebratory video posted to Instagram, which saw him popping a bottle of champagne and repeating his brag. “YOU CANT STOP ME. YOU CANT BLACKBALL ME. DIDNT I TELL YOU!!!!!!!” he captioned the post.
However, a week later, the track had suffered “the biggest fall for a #1 debut in Hot 100 history”, according to Twitter account @chartdata, when it fell from the top spot to Number 34.
