UNVEILS ALBUM ART AND TRACKLISTING
“The Atlanta artist has become one of rap’s most buzzed-about new names, an avatar of the genre’s contemporary, unmoored sound and visual aesthetic with a dizzyingly fast-growing listenership.” – Noisey
“Yachty gets top marks for being unapologetically himself.” – XXL
“Of his current burgeoning peers, Yachty is looking like the one most poised for crossover success.” – Pitchfork21 April 2017 (TORONTO, ON) – GRAMMY® Award-nominated multi-platinum artist, fashion disruptor, “King of Teens” Lil Yachty will release his highly anticipated full-length debut album, Teenage Emotions on May 26, 2017 via Quality Control/Motown/Capitol/Universal Music Canada the country’s leading music company.
Teenage Emotions combines Lil Yachty’s signature gleeful sing-rap and auto-tuned transmissions with hip hop bombast, pop and eighties cultural touchstones. The 19-year-old Atlanta native is genre-defying, mining hip-hop, alternative, indie sounds as well as his hometown Atlanta trap DNA to solidify his mosaic approach.
The 21-track album includes features from Migos, Diplo, YG & Kamaiyah, Stefflon Don, Evander Griim, Grace and Sonyae Elise. As the title indicates, the album is a reflection of young lives right now – from happiness to social media, saturated heartbreak to the dance floor – caught in a sound that effortlessly bounces from rap to pop to something entirely its own. Personally the nineteen-year-old strives to promote positivity and good vibes.
“It caters to a teenager’s everyday lifestyle-heartbreak, happiness, that vibe when you waking up in the morning getting dressed and you just wanna dance,” says Lil Yachty.

Lil Yachty cruised to the forefront of pop culture in 2016 with his mixtapes Lil Boat and Summer Songs 2 and achieved an RIAA platinum certification for his smash “One Night.” He joined D.R.A.M. for the 5x-platinum “Broccoli,” receiving a 2017 GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.” Following his initial Summer Songs EP, he dropped three more EPs in addition to the two acclaimed mixtapes—Lil Boat and Summer Songs 2—in less than a year. A highly sought-after voice, he guested on Chance the Rapper’s GRAMMY® Award-winning Coloring Book and the Fate of the Furious Official Soundtrack plus he appeared on a barrage of other singles (alongside such top guns as Young Thug, Charli XCX, Post Malone, T-Pain and many more). Most recently, he connected again on Kyle’s Top 10 hit “ISpy.” All that studio time came in between three electrifying tours, with shows often climaxing with some stage-diving alongside The Sailing Team.
