The song is slated to appear on Don Toliver’s fourth album, Hardstone Psycho, due June 14. It samples Snoop Dogg’s No. 6-peaking 2003 Hot 100 hit “Beautiful,” featuring Pharrell and Wilson.

Cash Cobain, from The Bronx, has had an eventful year so far. After Billboard named him among the R&B/Hip-Hop Artists to Watch in 2024, the MC scored his first chart appearance as a recording artist when his viral breakthrough track “Fisherrr,” with Bay Swag, debuted on the May 4-dated Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay ranking. It hits a new No. 16 high on the latest list, while rising to No. 15 on Rap Airplay and No. 19 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay. It also reached No. 33 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

The song has been boosted by a viral dance trend on TikTok, “The Reemski,” helping it soundtrack over 75,000 videos on the platform to date. In April, Cash Cobain released a remix of “Fisherrr” with Ice Spice.

On the June 1 Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, Cash Cobain tallied his second entry, via his featured turn on A Boogie Wit da Hoodie’s “Body” (No. 46).

Before debuting as a billed recording artist, Cash Cobain produced two tracks that charted on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs: B-Lovee’s “My Everything” (No. 37, December 2021) and Drake’s “Calling for You,” featuring 21 Savage (No. 5, October 2023); the latter likewise hit No. 5 on the Hot 100. He has also produced songs for Central Cee, PinkPantheress, LUCKI and Trippie Redd.

Last month, Cash Cobain teamed with J. Cole on “Grippy,” a reworked version of the former’s song “Dunk Contest,” as well as Jay Critch on “Kick It” and Lancey Foux and Teezo Touchdown on “Daylight.”

Billboard named Cash Cobain its R&B/Hip-Hop Rookie of the Month for April. He has teased upcoming collaborations with Lil Yachty and Frank Ocean, after releasing six solo projects to date: Sliick Cobain, 719, Nirvana, Slizzy Timing, 2 Slizzy 2 Sexy and Pretty Girls Love Slizzy.
