Alabama rapper/singer Yung Bleu had a breakout year in 2020 thanks in part to the star power of hip-hop icon Drake. Bleu’s remix of “You’re Mines Still” had a feature from the Grammy-winning Toronto native and it’s been his biggest hit to date.
Yung Bleu Credits Drake For Millions
Yung Bleu revealed on Twitter recently that his “You’re Mines Still” collaboration with Drake earned him millions of dollars since its Oct. 2020 release. He later deleted the tweet after some people used it to criticize him for riding Drake’s coattails.
“Ain gone lie that drake feature hits different I done made like a couple million in like 3 months. It usually take me a year to stack a million”
NBA Star Brought Drake + Yung Bleu Together
The “You’re Mines Still” remix wouldn’t have happened if not for NBA veteran DeMarcus Cousins. The four-time NBA All-Star is an Alabama native who is tight with Yung Bleu, and he played his college ball at Kentucky, where he met Drake (a big UK fan). Cousins got Bleu and Drake to connect and suggested they do a song together.
