American rapper and singer Jeremy Biddle known professionally as Yung Bleu or BLEU has released his new single, “Love in the Way.”
On “Love in the Way”, Bleu teamed up with Trinidadian-born rapper, singer, and songwriter Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty, known professionally as Nicki Minaj.
Bleu is best known for his 2020 single “You’re Mines Still”, which peaked at number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 after it was remixed by Drake.
Bleu started making music in 2013, releasing a string of mixtapes that had his name circulate throughout the Southern scene, and eventually signed a deal with Columbia Records through Boosie Badazz’s label Bad Azz Music Syndicate.
Bleu came back on the scene with the singles “Miss It” and “Ice on My Baby” from the mixtape Investments 4, which featured a guest appearance from YoungBoy Never Broke Again in 2017.
Bleu released a remix for “Miss It” featuring Kid Ink and for “Ice on My Baby” featuring rapper, singer, and entrepreneur Kevin Jerome Gilyard, better known by his stage name Kevin Gates in 2018.
Bleu released the mixtape Inv 5 and the EP Bleu Vandross, which were his last releases under Columbia Records and Bad Azz Music in 2020.
Later that year, Bleu signed a deal with Empire Distribution and a management deal with Meek Mill’s label Dream Chasers Records.
Also in 2020, BLEU released the EP Love Scars: The 5 Stages of Emotions, which included the single “You’re Mines Still”. A remix for “You’re Mines Still” featuring Canadian rapper Drake was released through OVO Sound on October 16, 2020, after the two artists were connected by basketball player DeMarcus Cousins.
The remix peaked at number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 and helped Love Scars: The 5 Stages of Emotions to enter the Billboard 200 chart.
Bleu released the singles “Thieves in Atlanta” featuring Coi Leray, “Baddest” featuring Chris Brown and 2 Chainz, and “Way More Close (Stuck in a Box)” featuring Big Sean in 2021.
All of the three songs appeared on Biddle’s debut album Moon Boy, released on July 23 of the same year. The album features guest appearances from Drake, Gunna, Big Sean, Kehlani, Chris Brown, 2 Chainz, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Moneybagg Yo, H.E.R., and Kodak Black.
