Last month, Staten Island star CJ unveiled his debut EP Loyalty Over Royalty, and 8-track project that sees a single assist from French Montana and boasts last year’s breakout hit “Whoopty” — an unapologetic drill cut that’s since peaked within the top ten of both the Billboard Hot 100 and UK Albums charts. Subsequently, “Whoopty” has also spawned a couple of remixes — an “NYC” version with Montana and Rowdy Rebel, and a “Latin Mix” with Anuel AA and Ozuna.
Today, CJ keeps the momentum going via a fresh visual for “Real One,” an ArmoTunez and MoneyEvery-produced departure from the previous, more hard-hitting songs that sees the rapper harmonizing about women and street life:
“If we see an opp, we gon’ drill some, how you running out when the bill come? You niggas pocket watching, need a deal or some, I been wilding out, I need to chill or some/
Got a whole brick bust down on my wrist, I don’t got no time, no time for a bitch, she said she wanna ride and she down for this shit, well baby, bust it open, open widе for this dick/”
The clip for “Real One” keeps things straight to the point, with CJ in a warehouse rocking different outfits and plenty of jewelry as a bevy of beauties dance and move seductively around him.
Showing no signs of stopping, CJ and Warner Records have announced a CJtv takeover, which will see additional videos arriving throughout April for “Set,” “Lil Freak” with DreamDoll, “Goin Up,” and “Outro (Blessings).” Fans will also get a deluxe edition of Loyalty Of Royalty — presumably, the aforementioned “Lil Freak” and “Whoopty” remixes will be a part of that tracklisting.
Press play on CJ’s “Real One” video below. Loyalty Over Royalty (Deluxe) makes landfall April 9.
