The Dying To Live Tour follows the December 2018 release of Kodak Black’s long awaited new album, DYING TO LIVE, available now HERE. The follow-up to 2018′s R&B project, HEARTBREAK KODAK, the new LP includes the platinum certified hit single, “ZEZE (Feat. Travis Scott & Offset),” available for individual streaming and download HERE. The track – which debuted at #1 on Billboard‘s “Top R&B/Hip Hop Songs” chart – is joined by a companion visual, directed by Travis Scott and boasting over 40 million views HERE.
DYING TO LIVE also includes such tracks as “Calling My Spirit,” the Ben Billions-produced “Take One,” and “If I’m Lyin, I’m Flyin,” the latter of which is joined by an official video with over 38 million views HERE. The album is further highlighted by “Moshpit (Feat. Juice WRLD),” “Testimony” and “Gnarly (Feat. Lil Pump),” the latter joined by an official video streaming HERE. Kodak Black of course recently teamed up with Gucci Mane and Bruno Mars for the gold certified single, “Wake Up In The Sky.” The track’s official companion video, directed by Mars, has proven a true phenomenon, now with over 184 million individual views HERE.
Kodak Black – named on both Rolling Stone‘s and Complex‘s “Best of 2017″ lists, as well as Billboard‘s “21 Under 21” – kicked off 2018 with the official video to his hit track, “Roll In Peace (Feat. XXXTentacion),” now with over 83 million views HERE. Released on Valentine’s Day 2018, HEARTBREAK KODAK displayed a different side of Kodak, exploring his vocal ability to create his own R&B sound.
The project followed 2017′s PROJECT BABY TWO: ALL GROWN UP, an expanded edition of his chart-topping mixtape, PROJECT BABY 2. That collection arrived at #1 on Billboard‘s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” ranking while also entering the overall SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #2. As if that weren’t enough, Kodak Black’s RIAA gold certified debut album, PAINTING PICTURES arrived at #3 on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its 2017 release. The album includes the 2x platinum certified single, “Tunnel Vision” – Kodak’s first “Hot 100″ hit and highest charting single to date. The track – which proved an instant streaming sensation upon its official release, earning more than 11 million streams in its first week alone – is joined by an equally popular companion video, now with more than 235 million views HERE.
