It's all flash and croons in the new video for "Wake Up in the Sky."
The Mars-produced track, presumably taken from Guwop's upcoming Evil Genius project, first dropped back in September and ultimately peaked at No. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100. DY, Tre, and Tarantino also contributed production. Mane and Mars previously linked for the "That's What I Like" remix back in 2016.
Speaking with Zane Lowe when premiering his Lil Pump collab "Kept Back" on Beats 1 over the summer, Gucci Mane explained how his creative approach on Evil Genius differs from his previous work.
"I went in with Metro, I did a bunch of songs with Southside. [Honorable] C.N.O.T.E.," Mane said. "I just really wanted to just have a chance to almost make a mixtape worth of songs with all the producers that I like. I picked maybe, like, 60 or 70 songs. I usually just take 20 songs and put them out but this time I really recorded a bunch of songs and then picked through them." He added that he kept recording until the label told him to turn in the album, at which point he started picking the best of the batch.
Both Gucci Mane and Bruno Mars are also set for headlining tours this fall.
