A soulful wordsmith and multi-talented musician, Westside Detroit native Samuel Shabazz is on track to become the next face of his city. Recently signed to Babyface Ray’s Wavy Gang, he is ready to share his talents with the mainstream. Today, he shares “PULL ME BACK” ft. Dre Butterz, the latest single from his upcoming PLANE BOY album. Teaming up with Dre Butterz, one of the Midwest’s most sought-after producers, Sam shows off his versatility on the track, tapping into his softer side. His auto-tuned vocals glisten over groovy production, singing “We want that top-notch feeling, your fire burning Imma about to jump in it / Make me a promise to come for me and find me when I’m deep in.”

“PULL ME BACK” arrives ahead of Samuel Shabazz’s upcoming album PLANE BOY, coming June 21st via Wavy Gang/EMPIRE. In preparation for the album, Sam has been sharing singles, including the lovestruck anthem “FOR YOU” and the flex-filled “1800 CALL SAM.” Today, Sam also revealed the features for PLANE BOY, including his Wavy Gang boss Babyface Ray and other rising Detroit artists Talibando, Moxie Knox, and more.

PLANE BOY will be Samuel Shabazz’s latest step in journey to the top of Detroit’s rap game. Growing up in Detroit’s Westside, he was introduced to music by his father, Uncle Sam, an R&B artist signed to Boyz II Men’s label during the 1990s. Starting to rap, write, and produce amidst a restlessly creative childhood, filled with trips to the studio with his dad, he later began recording during stints in Atlanta and California, while earning a Bachelor’s degree in Recording Arts. In 2014, while returning to Deroit, Samuel met Babyface Ray through a mutual friend.

The two artists bonded as brothers and began collaborating on music. Their chemistry is evident in Product Of My Environment, their 2019 collab album, which includes the hit track “Hall Of Fame” ft. Veeze (9M YT views). The track pushed Samuel onto new radars and made him a sought-out Detroit collaborator. He began to break beyond the city with 2021’s From Me To You and 2022’s Not A Fan. Last year, he released the introspective I Changed My Mind, which marks a shift in direction and Samuel’s reframed attitude about his career. The project earned Samuel’s most buzz yet in Detroit, and includes Samuel’s most streamed song to date “Dotted Line” ft. Veeze (1.5M YT views).
