American rapper and songwriter Lakeyah has released the remix of “Pushin P”, a song by rapper, singer, and songwriter Gunna.
“Pushin P” is a song by American rappers Gunna, Future, and Young Thug, the latter of whom is credited as a featured artist. It was released on January 7, 2022, as the second track from Gunna’s third studio album DS4Ever.
The “hypnotic”, alliterative track finds the trio rapping about “pushin p”, which is a phrase popularized by Gunna that means to “keep it real”. The track was regarded by some critics as a standout from DS4Ever, and became the album’s highest-charting track, debuting at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100.
Singed to Quality Control Music, Lakeyah is putting on for both the Midwest & Atlanta with a versatile sound that bridges that gap between velvety R&B and hard-hitting bars that contest even her most veteran QC counterparts. The Milwaukee-born singer, rapper, and star in the making came from humble beginnings in the midwest.
Growing up in Milwaukee raised by a single Mom with four children, Lakeyah was shy and studious, spending her days at the park and her nights reading acclaimed novels given to her by her Grandma like Rich Man Poor Man and The Help. As she came into her teenage years her lyrical chops and songwriting prowess began to emerge.
Lakeyah’s rise into the spotlight kicked off in 2019 with a remix of a City Girls track for the viral “First Day Out” Challenge, which gained traction online and caught the eyes of Quality Control and City Girls’ JT, who reposted her track. After honing her craft playing local shows in Milwaukee, in September of 2019 Lakeyah rolled the dice on a permanent move to Atlanta with her girlfriend.
In early 2020, Lakeyah followed up with The Keymix IIproject which introduced the world to her unmatched range, effortlessly swinging between aggressive, braggadocious rap and soulful, earnest R&B tracks.
