Released in August, “Pills & Automobiles” peaked at No. 46 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and has been certified platinum. The song serves as the fourth single from Breezy’s 45-track studio album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon.

Atlanta’s OG Parker co-produced Migos‘ “Slippery” featuring Gucci Mane and “Walk It Talk It” featuring Drake. The Martianz, which consist of Hutch and Hide, have produced tracks for Rae Sremmurd, Lil Skies, and Lil Baby.
