“Distraction” follows up Polo G’s smash hit “RAPSTAR” which topped charts around the world in 2021, becoming a breakthrough year for Polo, with the Chicago star’s Hall Of Fame album also debuting at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 in June and is certified Platinum, amassing over 3 Billion streams globally. The album’s record breaking 5x Platinum #1 single “RAPSTAR,” garnered Polo his first major award nomination at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards for Best New Artist and Best Hip Hop Video and earned Polo multiple nominations at the 2021 American Music Awards and 2022 Billboard Music Awards. Polo also landed the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine in October and was honored with Variety Magazine’s 2021 Hitmaker Award for Rising Star.
