"Wake Up In The Sky" is the new single from Gucci Mane's upcoming Evil Genius album, which is expected to drop sometime later this year, and is a smooth ode to the high life. In the chorus, Gucci and Bruno sing, "Castle on the hill (heh), wake up in the sky (you won't)/ You can't tell me I ain't fly (you can't tell me I ain't fly)/ I know I'm super fly (I know), I know I'm super fly (I know)."
At the end of August, Bruno Mars had actually teased the collab without fans knowing it, and shared two pictures on Instagram of himself and Kodak Black in the studio. "Wake Up In The Sky" is also Kodak's first new music since being released from prison back in August.
Although Gucci Mane has not yet shared an official release date for Evil Genius or other album details, it sounds like he's been taking his time with it to make sure it's perfect. He recently told Billboard of the project:
"I've been really working on the songs. You know, I just don't put out anything. So I'm trying to make this project one of my best projects ever. I'm really trying to collaborate with the best producers and make sure I give my fans something that they can be like, 'Ok, Gucci still coming hard. He still passionate about the music.'"
Evil Genius follows the rapper's 2017 albums El Gato: The Human Glacier and Mr. Davis.
