If you’re watching the NFL playoffs this year, chances are you heard Doe Boy in the newest Apple commercial.
The Cleveland, Ohio native exploded onto the scene with his viral smash “Mini Vans” back in 2018, and now, he’s debuting a new side of his artistry: singing. While he’s showcased his vocals previously on records, this time, he’s debuting them to the world on national television.
His newest single, “Way Too Long,” was created specifically for the new Apple ad, promoting their newest iPhone: the 15 Plus. The record quickly catapulted to new heights, becoming the most Shazam’ed song in January and even peaking at #1 on Rhythm Radio. The commercial boasts over 5 million views and counting, and let’s not even get into the fact that Doe Boy has been getting more airtime during the NFL playoffs than Taylor Swift.
On this impressive achievement, Doe Boy states, “That’s crazy right? Taylor Swift, man you gotta think: they show her every five seconds too. It’s like the NFL noticed. They show her more than the owner of the NFL, that’s crazy. They know what’s making them money.”
Signed to Future’s Freebandz imprint, Doe Boy inspires all aspiring rappers to believe that they, too, can one day have a record of this magnitude. He even goes on record stating that since the commercial aired, his streams have increased by 222%.
Regarding who has had on the Super Bowl this Sunday, Doe Boy states, “The Chiefs gon’ win, because of Taylor Swift. That’s how I feel, they not gonna let them lose. It’s politics.”
Stay tuned to see if Doe Boy is right or wrong! The Super Bowl airs this Sunday at 3:30 pm PST, with the San Francisco 49ers taking on the Kansas City Chiefs.
