Sexyy Red took the world by storm with her viral performance of “Pound Town” with BoxedIn. The organic success of the clip earned co-signs across the board from City Girls, Cardi B, and plenty of others. However, it was Nicki Minaj who officially took the song to the Billboard Hot 100 after jumping on the remix. The momentum is high for Sexyy Red and it appears that she’s only getting started. With a massive co-sign from Nicki, it seems like there’s no better time than now to unveil a new project.

This week, Sexyy Red hit the ‘Gram where she formally announced her upcoming EP, Hood Hottest Princess. The St. Louis-bred artist’s forthcoming body of work will undoubtedly set the tone for what could be a fruitful year for her. Hood Hottest Princess will arrive in its entirety on Friday, June 9th. We could imagine that Sexyy Red’s latest project will have the summer on lock, especially since she’s bringing some heavy-hitting features along with her.

Sexyy Red Hood Hottest Princess Drops Friday

Although the original version of “Pound Town” won’t appear on the tracklist, the Nicki Minaj and Tay Keith-assisted “Pound Town 2” will appear on the project – an impressive fear for anyone’s debut EP. Additionally, she’ll be bringing along Juicy J, who appears on “Strictly For The Strippers” and Sukihana, who featured on “Born By The River.” Hood Hottest Princess will also include “Female Gucci Mane,” which arrived back in April. The tracklist consists of 10 songs in total.

Following the debut of “Pound Town 2,” Nicki and Sexyy Red sat down for an Instagram Live where the Queen rapper provided some encouraging words. “This is only the f***ing beginning for her,” Nicki said. “This is what I told her: yo, people like you. People like what you have to say, they like your sound. So, make sure a whole bunch of people aren’t coming around trying to help you do this and help you do that. Because mothaf**kas really want to hear that raw sh*t, you know what I’m sayin’? And we missin’ it after a while in rap and we love discovering new people in rap and stuff like that.” Check out the cover art and tracklist for Sexyy Red’s Hood Hottest Princess above.
