The collection follows last year’s top 20 rap hit, “Not For Long (Feat. Trey Songz),” the companion video has garnered almost 10 million views below:
To celebrate the release of “PSYCADELIK THOUGHTZ” B.o.B will be hosting several events in Atlanta this weekend, including a private listening event tonight, followed by B.o.B Presents: Bobwood Fest tomorrow night at 8pm on Edgewood Avenue.
The past half decade has seen B.o.B devoted to one mission, to erase genre boundaries while simultaneously expanding the breadth and scope of a distinctive creative vision. 2010’s “B.o.B PRESENTS: THE ADVENTURES OF BOBBY RAY” immediately established the ATL-based artist as a major force in popular music. The RIAA gold certified collection – which debuted at #1 on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 – spawned a streak of hugely successful singles, including the 2x-platinum certified, #1 smash, “Nothin’ On You (Feat. Bruno Mars),” the 3x-platinum “Airplanes (Feat. Hayley Williams of Paramore),” and the platinum “Magic (Feat. Rivers Cuomo).” What’s more, the album earned the B.o.B a number of prestigious Grammy Awards nominations, including “Best Rap Album,” “Record of the Year,” “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration,” “Best Rap Song,” and “Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals.”
“STRANGE CLOUDS” followed in 2012, earning RIAA gold certification and spawning the multi-platinum hit singles, “Strange Clouds ft. Lil Wayne),” “Both Of Us (Feat. Taylor Swift),” and “So Good.” 2013’s “UNDERGROUND LUXURY” furthered B.o.B’s always ingenious approach via such smash singles as “John Doe (Feat. Priscilla),” “Ready (Feat. Future),” “HeadBand (Feat. 2 Chainz),” and “We Still In This Bitch (Feat. T.I. & Juicy J).” Official companion videos for those songs and much more can be viewed now at B.o.B’s official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/bobatl.
In addition to his acclaimed studio albums, B.o.B has unleashed a seemingly endless string of inventive singles, remixes, collaborations, and mixtapes, while also finding time for such artistic endeavors as founding the independent Label No Genre. One of contemporary music’s most exciting live artists, he has also spent countless time on the road, including such successful treks as Eminem and Jay-Z’s “Home & Home Tour,” Wiz Khalifa’s 2013 “Under The Influence of Music Tour,” and last year’s “The No Genre Tour,” featuring support from Bread Winners’ Association/Atlantic recording artist Kevin Gates.
