Back in 2016, Metro Boomin and 21 Savage delivered their collaborative album, Savage Mode. Spanning across nine tracks and including a lone feature from Future, fans have been clamoring for a sequel project ever since. Now, it appears that Savage Mode 2 could drop later this year.
Metro took to Twitter on Monday night (Feb. 17) to offer an update to fans about what he’s been working on. The mega-producer included Lil Durk’s forthcoming album No Auto Durk, the Weeknd’s After Hours and the second installation of Savage Mode on his current production list.
“NO AUTO, AFTER HOURS, SAVAGE MODE,” he tweeted.
Metro and 21 have been teasing their sequel collaboration album for years, so some fans were hesitant to celebrate. Several months after releasing Savage Mode, the Atlanta-bred duo revealed they had recorded an additional 20-30 tracks, which were presumed to land on their following project.
Last year, 21 hinted at the sequel LP again during a stop on his I Am > I Was Tour.
“Los Angeles, California, I want to say R.I.P. to Nipsey Hussle. We lost a real soldier,” he addressed a Los Angeles crowd. “Savage Mode 2 on the muthafu*kin’ way.”
Neither Metro nor 21 have offered a concrete release date for Savage Mode 2. However, appearing alongside the Weeknd’s After Hours and Durk’s No Auto Durk, both of which are slated to drop this year, gives it a promising 2020 release.
Durk began teasing his No Auto Durk album earlier this year. The Chicago native dropped a single of the same name back in 2018, which appeared on his project, Lil Durk Presents: Only the Family Involved, Vol. 2.
The Weeknd only recently unveiled the title of his forthcoming LP and has not yet given it a release date. The 30-year-old crooner last teamed up with Metro on Future’s “Low Life” single and his Starboy hit, “Six Feet Under.”
