Grand Hustle/Atlantic recording artist Young Dro has conquered urban radio this week as "Shoulder Lean", his hit single featuring rapper and labelmate T.I., earns the #1 spot on both the Billboard Urban Monitor chart and the R&R Urban Mainstream chart. The Atlanta-based rapper's major label debut, "BEST THANG SMOKIN'," will be released August 29th.
"Shoulder Lean" landed the #1 spot on last week's 106 & Park countdown on BET and was #1 on MTV2, where the video is in ELITE 8 rotation. Young Dro will appear on Sucker Free on MTV the week of August 21st and will perform on BET's 106 & Park on August 29th. Currently, "Shoulder Lean" is Blazin' at MTV Jams and Cum Laude at mtvU.
