It’s been one heck of a year for rising artist GloRilla, as she just got nominated for Best Rap Performance at the 2023 Grammy’s for her viral song with Hitkidd “F.N.F. (Let’s Go).”

GloRilla, whose real name is Gloria Hallelujah Woods, took to social media to express her excitement. “GODDDDD. I’m speechless!!!!!” she wrote on her Instagram page.

“The same song they was clowning me & my friends about saying we was ugly [and] dusty just got nominated for a Grammy !!!!!!!!! WHEN GOD IS ON YOUR SIDE YOU CANNOT FAIL,” she tweeted on her Twitter page.

The other nominees in that category are Dj Khaled featuring Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, John Legend and Fridayy for “GOD DID,” Doja Cat for “Vegas,” Gunna and Future featuring Young Thug for “Pushin P,” and Kendrick Lamar for “The Heart Part 5.” The 65th annual award show will air live on Sunday, Feb. 5, 2023 at the Arena in Los Angeles, California.

The Memphis rapper’s breakout single “F.N.F. (Let’s Go),” which was released on April 29, went viral on the internet and debuted at No. 42 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. This led her to get signed to Yo Gotti’s CMG record label through Interscope Records. She made her debut performance and won her first award for Best Breakthrough Artist at this year’s BET Hip-Hop Awards. “I don’t want to cry my makeup off… I want to thank God, my team, my mama, Yo Gotti, the biggest CEO, my manager, my family, and everybody that supported me. Thank y’all. Y’all, I don’t know what to say. Let’s go,” she said as she excepted her award that night.

Last week, GloRilla released her debut nine-track EP, Anyway’s Life’s Great. It features rappers Cardi B, Niki Pooh, and Hitkidd who produced the hit “F.N.F. (Let’s Go).” The release of her single “Tomorrow 2” featuring Cardi B was another big moment for the 23-year-old rapper, as it debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
