It is almost crazy to think that Silento’s viral single ‘Watch Me Whip,’ hit the internet by storm 2 years ago. Released in 2015, the platinum debut was so successful, he has toured without need for another hit since. As fans (especially kids) waited patiently for their chance to dance to the WMW track at live concerts, the next phase of Silento’s career has finally come. Today he debuted a new radio single & music video via instagram, “Wild.”
While it may seem awkward to some he’s debuting a new track at this point, it’s quite the opposite. The recent news of Silento being blocked from leaving Dubai made his name surface on blogs once again and it seems the story [see here] may have been in error. It appears the rapper’s having more fun in the United Arab Emirates island than he’s had in a while.
“Silentó – Wild #ComingSoon! #thinkingaboutyouchallenge #capitolrecords #linkinbio” he captioned the music video snippet on instagram.
The “Wild” music video was shot in Dubai. The rapper’s new image is ‘bright’ for lack of a better term. He has blond hair, still dances, and dawns a bright yellow vest to match his hairstyle.
In 9 hours the video has had just over 3,200 views and 38 comments. The numbers seem low for the massive reach of his first hit, “Watch Me Whip.” However, Capitol Records believes the new single will be another big wave for the Atlanta star.
