Plies Releases Debut Single “Becky” this Friday June 19th, 2009
Creating National Discussion About Who Becky Really is…
NEW YORK, N.Y., June 19th, 2009 –Rap sensation and recording artist Plies is releasing his newest and most anticipated single “Becky” this Friday June 19th, 2009 from his 4th album titled “Goon Affiliated” after just a short six months after releasing his third album, Da REAList, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Rap Charts Plies just can not get himself out of the studio, having released three best selling albums since just August 2007 all featuring chart-topping singles like “Shawty” featuring T-Pain, “Hypnotized” featuring Akon and “Bust It Baby Pt. 2” featuring Ne-Yo.
Plies’ forth album “Goon Affiliated” is slated to drop in September 2009 featuring this debut single “Becky”. Not only are we all waiting to hear the new sound of Plies, but another big question is, who is Becky? When asked, Plies responded, “Some of you all will be mad at me for saving this, but I’m in love with BECKY!”
Another mystery leaving fans anxious for the release of “Goon Affiliated” is that Plies is not leaking the names of the top artists who have recorded rap features on the album as this will be Plies’ FIRST album to ever include a rap feature of a different artist.
When it comes to Plies, he knows how to keep it real, fresh and always current. “I’ve been blessed to be able to come back with three albums in 16 months,” “I feel like it’s something that hadn’t been done in the new era” states Plies. Now in his forth album “Goon Affiliated”, Plies promises yet another certified classic, full of new sounds, technology, and a new group of top notch producers that Plies himself hand-picked.
Plies forth album “Goon Affiliated” is anticipated to be his most celebrated album to date, which is hard to imagine after his success with previous albums “The Real Testament”, “Definition of Real” and “Da REAList”. “The Real Testament” and “Definition of Real” are both RIAA certified gold albums having sold over 500,000 copies each. Plies debut single “Shawty” featuring T-Pain peaked at #1 in Urban & Rhythmic Radio; “Hypnotized” featuring Akon peaked at #3 on Billboard Hot 100; “Bust It Baby Pt. 2” featuring Ne-Yo also peaked at #1 on Billboard Hot 100. “Da REAList” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Rap Charts with the chart topping single “Put It on Ya” featuring Chris J.
PLIES, born in the controversial streets of Ft. Myers, Florida, began his musical career in 2003 with the guidance of his older brother Ronell “Big Gates” Levatte. Signed to Big Gates/Slip-N-Slide/Atlantic records, PLIES made an impressive national debut in August of 2007 with his certified gold album The Real Testament which spawned chart topping singles such as “Shawty” feat. T-Pain, “Hypnotized” feat. Akon and “I Am the Club” and sold over 3 million ring tones collectively. The rapper has launched an interactive, dual purpose fan club, and kicked off a nationwide “Street Elections 08” campaign in preparations of his 3rd album Da REAList. Plies is currently preparing for the release of his 4th album “Goon Affiliated” set to release in September of 2009.
