Belly Raps About His “Glorious” Life for New Song
Belly drops the title track to his upcoming project, Glorious. The project is due out this summer through Roc Nation. “Glorious” is produced by Danny Boy Styles and finds Belly rapping about how no matter what happens to him or what he does, it will be magnificent.
The Canadian artist has been a machine over the last two years. Since the summer of 2015, Belly has released three top-notch mixtapes: Up for Days, Another Day in Paradise, and most recently, Inzombia. He also signed to Roc Nation in 2015. His “Might Not” single featuring The Weeknd landed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at No. 68, and he achieved gold status for the track last June.
Last month, Belly finished a two-month North American tour alongside Juicy J. He will now join The Weeknd as a special guest on the North American leg of the Starboy: Legend of the Fall 2017 World Tour alongside Rae Sremmurd and 6LACK. The tour begins on April 25 in Vancouver.
XXL spoke to Belly about his long journey to where he is now and why he finds peace in the studio.
"That is my safe zone, man," he said. "People are fucked up. I like to spend as much time away from people as I can. Every time I get my hopes up for something or somebody…human beings will be human beings, you know? I rather just be in the studio and keep making music because that’s the only thing that loves me back. That’s what I do. And I talk about all the shit that the real world provides. [Laughs] That’s really the soundtrack to me life."
