B.o.B. Releases ETHER

(Los Angeles, CA – May 12th, 2017) Following months of widespread excitement and anticipation, B.o.B releases his first independent full-length album, ETHER [No Genre / EMPIRE] today! It’s available HERE. As soon as it went live, the record soared to #1 on iTunes Top Hip-Hop/Rap Albums Chart and Top 10 on the Overall Top Albums Chart.

The six-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum Atlanta rapper, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and Grand Hustle artist dramatically ups the ante yet again. Following the powerhouse introductory smash “4 Lit” [feat. Ty Dolla $ign and T.I.], he shared the latest single “Xantastic” [feat. Young Thug] just last week. Like sonic anesthesia bringing together two of this generation’s “ATLiens,” the track immediately captivated press as The Fader praised it for being “super hypnotic and the perfect soundtrack for a late night drive.” Speaking of intergalactic anthems, “E.T.” [feat. Lil Wayne] sees B.o.B and Weezy blast off to a new galaxy altogether fueled by woozy rhymes and an irresistible hook. Then, there’s “Big Kids” [feat. Usher & Cee Lo Green], which makes for a blockbuster finale to his deepest and most dynamic offering yet. See the full tracklisting below.

This month, B.o.B heads overseas to launch his first-ever Navy USO Tour on May 20th. He’ll be performing for our service men and women deployed in UK, Italy and Germany, offering an unforgettable experience to say, “Thank you.” It’s a powerful moment for him.

About the USO performances, he says, “I can’t wait to perform for our Navy men and women. I want to do something real special for them and thank them for their service. It’s a privilege and an honor to do this.”

He also updates his upcoming “Elements” Tour, changing dates in select markets. Openers will include No Genre artists such as London Jae, Jaque Beatz, and Havi. See the final full confirmed tour itinerary below.

B.o.B’s 2010 debut B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray catapulted him to superstardom. Not only did the record capture #1 on the Billboard Top 200, but it also went RIAA double-platinum and spawned a string of multiplatinum smashes such as “Nothin’ On You” [feat. Bruno Mars], “Airplanes” [feat. Hayley Williams of Paramore & Eminem], and “Magic” [feat. Rivers Cuomo of Weezer].

His second studio album, 2012’s Strange Clouds landed in the Top 5 of the Billboard Top 200, earned a platinum plaque, and contained the multiplatinum hits “Strange Clouds” [feat. Lil Wayne], “Both Of Us” [feat. Taylor Swift], and “So Good” as well as a collaboration with Academy® Award winner Morgan Freeman entitled “Bombs Away.” Driven by singles such as “Headband” [feat. 2 Chainz] and “We Still In This Bitch” [feat. T.I. & Juicy J], 2013’s gold-certified Underground Luxury maintained this scorching momentum. Among other hits, “Don’t Let Me Fall” and “Bobby Ray Bands” also both reached gold status. Along the way, he became a powerful stage presence, performing with the likes of Eminem and Jay-Z, Wiz Khalifa, Bruno Mars, and more.
