Lil Baby, City Girls And PnB Rock Join Layton Greene At Quality Control University
Layton Greene enrolls at Quality Control University in the official video for her new single, “Leave Em Alone.” On hand for the fun-filled extracurricular activities of the QCU freshman class are label mates Lil Baby, City Girls and PnB Rock . Zain Alexander Shammas (DVBBS, TM88) directed the vibrant clip, which was shot in Atlanta. View “Leave Em Alone”.
Greene went to #1 on YouTube Music’s “R&B on the Rise” playlist after the May release of“Leave Em Alone” ft. Lil Baby, City Girls and PnB Rock (Quality Control Music/Level’D Up/Motown Records). Cumulative streams of the track have already surpassed 25 million. AllHipHop praised the “explosive new single” and hailed Greene as “your new favorite R&B singer.” Lil Baby recently brought Greene , Yung Miami and PnB on stage to perform “Leave Em Alone” during his BET weekend set at Staples Center.
Greene is the first R&B artist signed to Quality Control, a move that HotNewHipHop hailed as “historic.” Billboard said, “Greene remixes lyrics from today’s rap songs with an old-school R&B twist and original lyrics about her life struggles.” SLAY Magazine heralded her as “the next big R&B Star of our millennial generation.”
The 20-year-old vocalist, who was born in East St. Louis, became a viral sensation when she put her own spin on Kodak Black’s “Roll in Peace” and uploaded the homemade video to social media. Heartened by the incredible response she received, Greene went in the studio with producer G-Styles to record an extended version of the song. “Roll In Piece Remix” gained over 3.5 million plays on SoundCloud in the first month and jumped into the Top 15 of Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs chart. After quitting her restaurant day job, Greenebegan to focus full-time on her music. Combined global streams of her songs now exceed 300 million – including more than 80 million streams for “Myself,” an original song, and 15 million streams for her remake of Lil Baby’s “Close Friends,” which topped SoundCloud’s R&B chart earlier this year.
