Oh that Young Thug, so unpredictable! The rapper randomly announced on Twitter last night that he's not only dropping an album (a singing album at that!), but it will also be executive produced by none other than—wait for it—Drake.
Singing album this week...— Young Thug ひ (@youngthug) April 27, 2017
According to the string of tweets, Thugger's new LP has the incredible title of Easy Breezy Beautiful Thugger Girls and is supposedly arriving this week. Based on the success and popularity of New Music Fridays for artists, it's likely the album could be released tonight at midnight. The record will be the follow-up to last August's Jeffrey mixtape and will be his debut album.
The announcement comes after a flood of solid features for Thugger, including "Sacrifices" on Drake's More Life, DJ Snake's "The Half" alongside Jeremih and Swizz Beatz, Rick Ross' "Trap Trap Trap" and Calvin Harris' "Heatstroke" with Pharrell and Ariana Grande. So expect more heat to come from the ever-growing rapper!
