Soulja Boy Scores 2nd Top 10 Hit

Soulja Boy Scores 2nd Top 10 Hit
Since the release of Soulja Boy’s surprise smash ‘Crank That’ back in 2007, the teen ‘rapper’ has had much difficulty in matching the success of the song – with many of his follow-up singles failing to chart.
That all changed this week, however, as the one-time, one-hit wonder, saw his current single ‘Kiss Me Thru The Phone (ft. Sammie)’ jump #17-#9 on the Billboard Hot 100; a jump caused primarily by a surge in iTunes downloads, where the track currently sits at #4.
As much as I think his music is trash, I can’t hate on the young man’s hustle. He’s been releasing track after track and doing show after show, so I guess it’s a reward of hard work – regardless of the quality of the work’s output.
Your thoughts?

    Why waste time posting on people like Soulja boy??!!??

    The concept of “real” is relative. It may be “real” to you, but Soulja Boy etc may be “real” to someone else. Although, I do agree he is trash LOL LOL

    So? His album still flopped.

    Yes his album flopped seriously! He wanted it to sell a million in a week to, I’m surprised his debut was certified platinum.

    I was really surprised to, but when I heard the beat to this song [and Jim Jonsin (“Lollipop,” “Whatever You Like”) produced it, Soulja Boy should be gratful he didn’t touch this tracks production-and needs to lay off of trying to be a serious producer], especially the part when Sammie is saying the phone number (and the intro to the song as well), I was like this is kinda hot!

    So I actually bought it off of iTunes but about a month ago-no lie. I do like the song, but Soulja Boy didn’t spit a full 16 on the verses. The video was well made, I liked how he showed love (kissing through the phones) from all ages, teens to older grandparents-that was a cute addition.

    This song only became a hit thanks to Sammie singing on the hook. He saved the song, otherwise it would’ve flopped. If you look at some of the comments on YouTube many people say in the comments, they just like the chorus, not Soulja’s Boy’s crappy rhymes so Soulja better be thankful of Sammie because this really should’ve been Sammie’s song on his next project.

    I don’t know her…

  13. you already know February 28, 2009

    The song is very catchy and yes, Sammie did save the song because that man has talent. For real, he so underrated (Sammie) I can’t for his album to come out this year. You might not like Souljah Boy but he is a hustler.
