Last month, Yung Bleu took over with his new album Moon Boy. Today (Aug 18), he continues the momentum of the project by releasing the official video for “Way More Close,” which is the Big Sean-assisted fan-favorite track from the album. The new Jon Primo-directed clip starts off with a visual representation of the opening lyrics as he is seemingly stuck in a continuous cycle that he can’t get out of:
It’s like I’m stuck in a box, you told me you love me, but I think not/ It’s like I’m stuck in a maze, you get so stuck in your ways/ I heard you turnin’ your page, movin’ to Miami, out in Dade/ But don’t go cold on me
That pussy got a hold on me, you can’t take back what you showed to me/ But she never told on me, my n***as stuck in them cages/ Can you send a picture of you naked? Can’t deny it, girl, I need to be close to you/ Way more close to you
Bleu’s debut offering also included an array of star-studded collaborations with John Legend, H.E.R, Kehlani, Big Sean, Davido, Chris Brown, 2 Chainz, Moneybagg Yo, among many others. In support of the album, he recently announced his upcoming North American “Moon Boy Tour,” a 38-date cross-country tour that will kick off on August 26 in Minneapolis with stops in major cities including Chicago, New York, Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles and more.
In terms of the album’s success, the project propelled him to be named the No. 1 most streamed R&B artist on Audiomack this week, and recently secured his first career No. 1 album placement on the Billboard Independent Albums chart. Moon Boy also debuted at No. 12 on the Billboard 200, as well as several significant Top-5 placements across key Billboard charts, including R&B Albums (No. 2), R&B / Hip-Hop Albums (No. 3) and Digital Albums (No. 5).
