UPDATE: See Offset’s latest tweet below. Looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer.
Come December 14th, Offset will make Migos’ cypher complete with his official solo album. He spoke on what fans can expect to Billboard:
I could give you a little content, but I don’t want to spill the beans, beans, beans. I’m talking about relevant situations that have occurred over the last 18 or 24 months, like me being in the crash, my kids, my family time and me being married. There’s different parts of my life. The ups and downs of being in music, the feeling of people doubting me and being the underdog to becoming the big dog.
I’m not really talking too much about Pateks and Lambos because it’s not relatable. That’s almost like bubblegum rap now, how the people are accepting it. They just get two days of playing it, then it’s over with. This can last and people can feel it.
I’m really pushing my album to be a playlist and not an album, because a playlist is consistently being played for moves, exercises, and different things. With Spotify and all the streaming services, it’s all about who got the biggest playlist. So I was focused on making my album like a playlist. The format of what an album is in the books, isn’t what’s going on in 2019.
When I say I want a playlist vibe, I’m still giving you content with the songs — real shit that’s going on. It’s an album of what I’ve been going through here and there and what got me to this point.
He also revealed that his biggest focus is record sales (“I just want to do big numbers… To me, I don’t give a damn about anything but numbers.”)
With that said, this week sees Offset’s momentum begin to build via the new single “Red Room.” Stream the Metro Boomin-produced banger below…definitely not something some folks will expect.
