Longtime collaborators and friends 21 Savage and producer Metro Boomin are sure to make a hit record whenever they join forces. Together, they’ve contributed some of the hottest songs in hip hop, including “Bank Account,” “10 Freaky Girls,” and more. At the BET Awards 2021, the Atlanta-based stars were recognized for their efforts after being nominated for “Best Group” alongside Chloe X Halle, Chris Brown and Young Thug, City Girls, Migos, and Bruno Mars, Anderson .Paak, and Silk Sonic, who ultimately took home the win. Ahead of this year’s show hosted by actress Taraji P.Henson on Sunday, June 26 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, here are five times 21 Savage and producer Metro Boomin teamed up together to make a hit song.
21 and Metro teamed up for this 2017 smash hit “Bank Account,” the single off the rapper’s debut studio project Issa Album. The official audio on YouTube has been listened to over 402 million times.
“X” is the lead single from 21 and Metro’s collaborative album Savage Mode and features fellow Atlanta native Future. The song has gone double platinum since its release in July 2016.
Another standout track from the pair’s Savage Mode project. It was also accompanied by a Menace II Society-inspired music video. The track peaked at number 12 on the US Billboard Hot Rap Songs and 17 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.
For the opening track off their Savage Mode II project released in 2020, Metro samples Diana Ross' 1976 song "I Thought It Took a Little Time" for the haunting hip hop hit.
“10 Freaky Girls”
21 Savage raps about his wealth, guns, and “10 Freaky Girls” with him on a yacht on this trumpet-laden track produced by Metro off his 2018 project Not All Heroes Wear Capes.
