Kevin Gates Drops ***Not The Only One****Video

In terms of success and sales, Kevin Gates‘ Islah album has been one of the more surprising projects of 2016. Debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, Gates had his breakout moment and certified himself as a star after bubbling on the periphery for the last five years.
Instead of opting for a big budget video to celebrate his success, the Baton Rouge, LA rapper relies on his star power as he captivates viewers with his presence and impressive bars in the video for his Islah cut, “Not the Only One.”
Gates’ album dropped the same week as Rihanna’s ANTI project and sold 112,000 copies.While the high sales and chart placement were a testament to Gates’ music, hard work and hardcore fan base, the former XXL Freshman said that an Apple employee told him that he should have debuted at No. 1. “The album is No. 2? And then when I went to Apple, they was like, ‘No, it’s really No. 1.’ And I was like whatever, I didn’t care if it was No. 13,” recalls Gates. “She was like, ‘No, but Kevin… Samsung paid for Rihanna’s CDs and that’s not fair, so you’re really #1.’ I said ma’am let me tell you something – and this is what that lady [from Apple] said. I said ma’am, I wouldn’t care if mine was in 100th place.”
Gates also dropped the video for “Pride” back in February.
