Soulja Boy is the original social media rap phenomenon — a title he still maintains to this day.
On Friday (April 30), Soulja Boy released the video for his “She Make It Clap” single, dominating Twitter trending topics and timelines. The record has already proven to be a viral smash, topping the Billboard Top Triller US Chart earlier this week.
The Dale “Rage” Resteghini-directed visual finds Draco in his ridiculous rapper element: unconsciously twerking women poolside, special guest appearances from fellow rap stars Chief Keef and Desiigner and aerial viewpoints into his high-fashion and multi-level mansion.
And, of course, the current TikTok-favored “Make It Clap” dance.
In a fortuitous twist of fate, Soulja Boy began retweeting fans who were unaware the “Crank Dat” legend was the song’s creator prior to the video’s arrival, allowing both new and existing viewers to get in on the action.
“Make It Clap” comes on the heels of Soulja Boy inking a deal with Virgin Music on April 8. The move will allow Soulja Boy to maintain his independent SODMG empire while still being visible enough to matter amongst his contemporaries.
