GloRilla, née Gloria Hallelujah Woods, announced her first major tour following the news of her 2023 Grammy nomination for debut single, “F.N.F. (Let’s Go).”

GloRilla has continued to gain support from her musical peers and a few Hip-Hop vets. Nas recently showed his love to Glo two-minutes and 40 seconds into King’s Disease III‘s bonus track, “Til My Last Breath,” where he raps: “I’m applying pressure, I see why she prеssed/When she with me she GloRilla, F.N.F.”
“I love that so much, Nas is a big legend for real,” Glo told TMZ in response to hearing her shout out on the Queens rapper’s song. “That’s super big. Like I never in a million years.”
Mary J. Blige also showed public support for the 23-year-old during her Good Morning Gorgeous tour where she rapped lyrics to the viral single.
“But I’ma tell you something about these tears of mine,” MJB said while on stage. “These are tears of joy because I ain’t got to go through no more bullsh*t. I’m f-r-e-e, f**k ni**a free, that mean I ain’t gotta worry ’bout no f**k ni**a cheating.”
Glo reposted the clip on her IG Story with the caption: “Love me some Mary.”
