New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
After posting up north of nearly 25 million streams in the U.S. alone and receiving praise from HotNewHipHop and more, rising Inland Empire
rapper GirlzLuhDev unleashes his debut, Day 1 Starter project, out now on Capitol Records. Listen below. GirlzLuhDev also drops the new SUPERGEBAR directed video for "Dangerously N Luv."
He paved the way for the project with "Dead Bro." HotNewHipHop dubbed it "equally funny as it is infectious, and GirlzLuhDev's charm is the cherry on top." Between the title track "Day One Starter (feat. Remble)," "Mario Chalmers," and the viral single viral single "Tooka," tracks from the project have impressively amassed over 17 million total streams prior to release. "Day One Starter (feat. Remble)" a local fan favorite with fellow rapper Remble, surpassed over 1.5 million streams in the U.S. alone. It finds the MCs spitting dazzling verses that spiral around an airy West Coast beat.
"It feels great to have my debut project out because my music is art that I've been working on for the past 2 years. I want the world to relate to me and catch my vibe when listening to my sound," says GirlzLuhDev.
Elsewhere on Day 1 Starter, the opener "BNB" pairs his melodic verses with piano and a glitchy beat. Finger-snaps maintain the tempo of "Dangerously N Luv" as his hummable bars melt into the production with smooth energy. He leans into an off-kilter bounce on "Used To" with one final hypnotic chorus. GirlzLuhDev asserts himself as a rapper to watch in 2021 and, of course, a Day 1 Starter.

GirlzLuhDev is a rapper, singer, ex-basketball star, and—quite possibly—America's next great hitmaker. The 18-year-old artist from California's Inland Empire
who just graduated high school is a year into making music but has already landed a viral hit, the raunchy but blissed out "Tooka," which amassed over 17 million streams. GirlzLuhDev now has nearly 25 million streams across his budding catalog. Supported by simple beats and rich keys, he parlays his youthful energy into a bright blend of bars, warbled melodies, and ad libs that sounds like smack talk beamed down from a distant planet. It's sun-baked West Coast street rap meets the wonky charm of a kid with nothing to lose. Signed to Capitol Records, Dev has his sights set on the national spotlight.
