Lil Uzi Vert’s ‘Luv Is Rage 2’ Earns SoundCloud’s Top Album of 2017
It's safe to say that hip-hop had one of the most dominating years ever in the music game, and that appears to be on almost all fronts. SoundCloud unleashes their 2017 Playback list, which features Lil Uzi Vert landing the top album slot for his Luv Is Rage 2 project.
The album originally released back in August on the streaming website, with each track earning millions of spins, proving the Philadelphia rapper's appeal. Uzi's "XO Tour Llif3" record from the project also separately earned the Top Rap/Hip-Hop Track spot on the Playback list for the year.
There are a slew of hip-hop acts and songs that landed spots on SoundCloud's list, including Logic's "1-800-273-8255" song becoming the Top Pop Track and SZA and Travis Scott's "Love Galore" earning the Top R&B/Soul Track spot. There were even some artists we know and love that were named as part of the "Artists Who Were on SoundCloud First and Owned the Internet in 2017" category such as Lil Pump, Uzi, Post Malone and Trippie Redd. Even Travis Scott and Chance The Rapper were listed in SoundCloud's "Buzziest Drops" section for releasing multiple songs at a time this year.
Uzi's Luv Is Rage 2 album has been critically acclaimed, and has gone gold since its August debut. Nicki Minaj most recently hopped on the remix for his track "The Way Life Goes" and the two dropped the music video for it last week.
