Lola Brooke has been turning heads since she stepped on the scene, especially with the drop of her debut album in November 2023. The young rapper has been making music for years, and along with that, comes opportunities to collaborate with other artists. Ranging from well-known to up-and-coming artists, Lola can expand her brand and build up an exclusive network of other like-minded and talented individuals. She has appeared on stage with several big names in the rap industry such as A Boogie, Future, and Lil Kim.
She has made a name for herself through doing so, and it is exciting to see who she will collaborate with next! Here is a look at some of her best collaborations to date:
Billy B was the Brooklyn native artist featured in Lola’s viral “Don’t Play Wit It” music video. She started pursuing music in 2015 and has been featured in several publications such as Complex, Vibe, and The Source. It isn’t surprising that the two New Yorkers came together for the song, which currently has over 36 million views and continues to be a popular TikTok song.
Although Billy B was featured in the original version of the song, she was noticeably absent from the remix.
Latto has been a face in the rap game since she was a teenager and is a fan favorite. The award-winning rapper was featured in Lola’s “Don’t Play Wit It” remix music video alongside City Girl, Yung Miami. The remix version of the song not only brought the viral song to the center once again but created more hype with the addition of well-known female rappers.
Before the collaboration, the two sat down on Latto's 777 Radio and spoke about Lola’s thoughts and feelings about the original song blowing up. Little did she know at the time, she would meet up with Latto a few months later to create the remix version that garnered over 26 million views.
In addition to female artists, Lola had the opportunity to feature well-known singer Bryson Tiller, in her music video for “You.” The music video was just released in October 2023. In an interview with Power 105.1, she talked about how much of an inspiration Bryson’s music was and how his raw talent and lyrical prose were unmatched.
In the song, Lola trades her brash rap tone for a softer, more intimate style as she discusses a sexual relationship with a partner. The inspiration for the song came from Foxy Brown’s 1996 classic, “Get Me Home.”
Lola appeared in singer Ciara’s “Da Girls” remix music video with songwriter and rapper, Lady London. London is from New York as well and in 2018, she posted a freestyling video on Twitter that soon went viral and the rest is history. The music video premiered in April 2023 and became an instant summer anthem. In the girl empowerment-themed track, Lola raps:
“Two steps ahead Like Ci, fitted in Fenty, I’m bad like Rih/ I’m thee, I’m she, I don’t need no he, these Black girl braids gon’ hug my cheeks (come on)/ What I look like being pressed? Gonna rock these pants like a freakum dress/ Got my name engraved on American Express.” Who will Lola Brooke collaborate next?
