Sexyy Red Gets So Icy in the “Female Gucci Mane” Single
The St. Louis Native Prepares For #SexyySummer, Channeling Guwop For the Highly-Anticipated Follow-Up to Her Viral Tay Keith Collaboration “Pound Town,” Which Peaked at #1 on Spotify’s Viral Chart
“Female Gucci Mane” is the Latest Single From Sexyy Red’s Next Project, Coming This Spring
Ceaselessly confident and endlessly quotable, Sexyy Red is tearing up the rap game with her unapologetic rhymes. Sexyy Red shares “Female Gucci Mane,” her new single. The St. Louis native has earned comparisons to the legendary 1017 CEO for her raw lyricism and deep connections to the streets. “Female Gucci Mane” is the latest single from Sexyy Red’s upcoming project, due this spring. Produced by Shawn Ferrari (Chief Keef, Gunna), whose bombastic beat would fit easily into one of Gucci’s DJ Scream-curated mixtapes, “Female Gucci Mane” is a speaker-knocking statement of purpose from the top-trending rapper, as she basks in the attention of her growing legion of admirers: “I’m hella conceited b*tch I’m sexy as sh*t/I see you steady lookin’ baby go on take a pic,” she spits.
“Female Gucci Mane” is the highly-anticipated follow-up to “Pound Town,” Sexyy Red’s bass-boosted Tay Keith-produced viral hit. Racking up over 2.5 million streams in the past week, the song reached the #1 spot on Spotify’s U.S. Viral 50 chart. Defined by Tay Keith’s pounding piano line and Sexyy’s supremely chill Southern drawl, “Pound Town” is the song that people on the internet can’t stop quoting. Originally released in January, “Pound Town” picked up steam in the subsequent months thanks to the viral #PoundTownChallenge, which helped the song generate over 200k video creations on TikTok. With a coterie of high-profile fans tapping in and quoting their favorite lyrics, including Cardi B, Summer Walker, GloRilla, JT of City Girls, Rico Nasty, and TiaCorine, a recent writeup in Billboard, and an appearance on on the first remix to “Slut Me Out,” the Billboard-charting hit by NLE Choppa, Sexyy Red and “Pound Town” are only beginning to rise.
“Pound Town” might be her breakthrough moment, but real (dread) heads know that Sexyy Red has been putting in work for a long time. She first turned heads with her gender-flipped remixes of songs like Three 6 Mafia’s “Slob On My Knob” (“Slob On My Ckat“) and Tay-K’s “I Love My Choppa” (“I Love My Nickel“), showing off her knack for crisp turns-of-phrase and eye-popping and viscerally frank bars. Her inventive visuals for songs like “Throwin It” and “Sexyy,” from her 2021 mixtape Ghetto Superstar, helped her build a following on Instagram (307k followers), YouTube (67.5k subscribers), and Twitter (139.4k followers).
Sexyy Red hype reached a fever pitch in the Fall, when she collaborated with Summer Walker on “Sense Dat God Gave You” and with fellow sex positive diva Sukihana on “Born By The River.” Built around a flip of a famous Sam Cooke lyric, the latter song was an impressive statement, earning a glowing review in Pitchfork and prompting an Instagram follow from Drake.

With much more music on deck and a burgeoning fanbase that can’t get enough of her hits, the rising rapper is preparing for a Sexyy Red Summer. Get on board now, before the ship blasts off.
