Toquel’s “1111” is a follow-up to his highly successful album “Beverly Hills,” released in 2022. This new album features eleven tracks, with a few collaborations. The song titled “Ghetto” features a collaboration with FLY LO, while “Fake Love” includes a guest appearance by the artist Rack. Additionally, the track “Allou” is a collaboration with LILA, and Roran joins for the song “Ferma”. Even before the album’s release, Toquel had two hit singles in collaboration with Bloody Hawk, both of which are included in this album: “G63” and “Prosopika Freestyle”.

The album was produced by Beyond who is the producer of some of the biggest hits of the Greek trap/rap scene.

The collaboration between Toquel and Bloody Hawk resulted in “G63,” the initial hit that marked the introduction of Toquel’s fourth album, “1111”. Initially conceived as a working title, both artists found the name appealing, and consequently, the existing moniker remained unchanged for the song.

Officially, they released “G63” as a precursor to the album on 13/10/2023. However, before its official launch, there was an unauthorized leak of the single. A snippet of the lyrics sung by Toquel in June 2023 surfaced on the social platform TikTok. This small excerpt managed to go viral, sparking significant interest. Despite the early exposure, the single has already attained “platinum” status and has accumulated over 5 million streams on Spotify.

The album includes the single “Prosopika Freestyle,” released on 15/06/2023, which has already amassed approximately 4 million streams.

Toquel’s album “1111” is number one on the Apple Music Top Albums Chart in Cyprus. Nowadays, artists typically release albums on all digital platforms, including Spotify.
