The Dreamville train keeps rolling along. Following new albums from J. Cole (KOD) and Cozz (Effected), original flagship artist Bas is back with a new album titled Milky Way, his first official release since 2016’s Too High To Riot. The NYC-by-way-of-Paris emcee explained the new project via social media:
It’s been two and a half years since Too High To Riot. I’ve spent the better part searching for ground. We go looking for love in all the wrong places. We go on radio shows looking for love from the hosts and their audience. We put out albums, our truths, in hopes the public will love them and catapult us to great successes.
We hope our labels will love how the singles perform. We conquer as many women as we can as if it’ll make us love ourselves. Instead of finding one that who shows you the man you could be. We share only the good parts of our lives on social media. In hopes of making people fall in love with us. One like at a time.
This album is about finding ground. About not poisoning your own well. About finding and tethering yourself to the love that truly fulfills you. Love of self. Love of others. Lovers. Family. Friends. Fans. You’ve all given me all the affirmation I’ll ever need. That is the Milky Way. The only way to go.
Stream (and check out the full credits for) Milky Way below, which sees additional appearances from Cole, Ari Lennox, Correy C (who’s currently incarcerated, unfortunately), Lion Babe (of whom Bas flips a version of their track “Rocket” as a bonus) and more.
