With less than three weeks until his sophomore album, Immigrant, drops, Belly is making the rounds to promote the upcoming release and partook in some early celebrating at the Daytime Stage at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival on Saturday afternoon (September 21).
Prior to hitting the stage, the Canadian rapper had his hypeman get the crowd amped for his performance before he ran onto the stage with his single, "Mumble Rap." "You see my big ass up here moving. I wanna see everyone in this f**king crowd moving," the XO signee told the audience in a black hoodie. Next up for Belly was "Man Listen," an anthem that was released alongside Madden NFL 18 G.O.A.T edition and "Maintain," a cut featured on his upcoming album.
For those unaware of his own catalog, the rapper also managed to offer up his contributions from his remix of G-Eazy's mega-smash, "No Limit." "This isn't my celebration. This is our celebration. Y'all ready to sing with me or what?" he asked the crowd. Toss in throwbacks like "Trap Phone," "Consuela," "Ballerina," The Weeknd-assisted "Might Not," and the Daytime Stage audience was able to check off the oldie but goodie box, too!
Earlier this month, Belly, who is of Palestinian and Jordanian descent, took to Instagram to unveil details about his new project. "With everything going on, I can't sit by and say nothing. I decided to speak my truths. my album is now called || IMMIGRANT," the rapper wrote in a caption, unveiling an October 12 release date. Stay tuned for even more from the Daytime Stage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, which is set to include more show-stopping performances from Logic, Dua Lipa, 5 Seconds of Summer and more.
