Many critics and fans are skeptical about the ability to meet, or let alone exceed, the success of his debut single, and initial handful of songs. Yet, he dodged the dreaded one-hit wonder pitfall when his second single “Tiimmy Turner,” which went viral and also went Platinum — and featured a Kanye West remix.

While “Thank God I Got It” and “Up” don’t seem to be catching on his SoundCloud, “Up” has cracked a million on YouTube, and “Thank God I Got It” is well on its way. Currently signed to Yeezy’s GOOD Music imprint, and on his Outlet Tour, he announced his upcoming Liife Of Desiigner   album earlier today on Twitter, and those who take in his tour dates will get to hear it first. Still, the new records are having an impact online; Since it was released on February 14th, Outlet has over 4 million spins on his official YouTube channel and over 3.5 million on his official SoundCloud page. “Holy Ghost” has amassed well over 4 million cumulative spins. With or without radio support, Desiigner seems to be thriving and enjoying every step of the journey. Last week he allegedly tweeted “Fuck NY RADIO,” which could potentially have been a sign of frustration about the lack of support from hometown influencers for his new music. His hit record “Panda,” which was HipHopDX on our “most lit songs of 2016” list, became a cultural phenomenon, spawning a never ending sea of remixes, and becoming certified 5x Platinum. New York City, NY – Desiigner has had an unquestionably good 365 days. Much of that skepticism stems from the lackluster commercial performance of his three new singles, which have — thus far — failed to penetrate radio or Billboard, while “Panda” is currently at #100 after 64 weeks on the Digital R&B/Hip-Hop single sales chart.
