Latto – Sunshine (LIFT Live Performance)

American rapper Alyssa Michelle Stephens, known professionally as Latto has released her the LIFT live performance of her song, “Sunshine (LIFT Live Performance).”

Latto made her debut on the reality television series The Rap Game in 2016. During that time, she competed under the stage name Miss Mulatto and ended up winning the show’s first season.

Despite her victory, however, Latto did not accept the record deal that was presented to her as a prize for winning the show.

Latto broke through to the public in 2019 with the release of her track “B*tch from da Souf,” and shortly after that, she signed a recording contract with RCA Records.

The track debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 in August of 2020 and reached its highest position of number 95. It was accompanied by a remix featuring Saweetie and Trina, both of whom are rappers.

On April 23, Latto disseminated a promotional single under the title “No Hook.” The second promotional track, titled “He Say She Say,” was made available by her on May 21.

In July of 2020, Latto reproduced some of the album covers for the rapper Gucci Mane, beginning with 2009’s The State vs. Radric Davis. Gucci had a favourable reaction to Latto’s recreations of his album covers.

On May 18, it was reported that on streaming platforms, Latto’s name had been changed to simply Latto, a change first reflected on her guest appearance on Toosii’s album Thank You for Believing, where she was credited as Latto. She released a new single titled “The Biggest”, to go with the announcement of her new name.

On September 24, Latto released the lead single from her upcoming second studio album, “Big Energy”. The song became Latto’s highest charting song on the Billboard Hot 100, so far peaking at number three.
