Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake album is finally here and fans are freaking out. Uzi surprisingly released the album a week earlier than he said he would.
The Philly rapper released the official tracklist last night (Mar. 5) on Twitter.
In addition to the previously released singles “Futsal Shuffle 2020” and “That Way,” there’s a song on the album called “Urgency” which features Syd. On Twitter, Uzi revealed that Chief Keef produced the song “Chrome Hearts Tags.”
His single “That Way” features The Backstreet Boys’ 1999 hit “I Want It That Way.” Nick Carter, a member of the legendary boy band, invited Uzi to be on their next album.
He tweeted, “OMG ! Freaking LOVE @LilUziVert. Now you’re gonna have to be featured on our next album bud.” Uzi replied, “Thanks Nick.”
Eternal Atake is a follow-up to Uzi’s 2017 release Luv Is Rage 2. Uzi first announced his forthcoming project back in 2018, but the release of the album was held up over issues with his label, Generation Now. After having trouble with his label, Uzi signed a management deal with Roc Nation.
Last year, Uzi dropped “Futsal Shuffle 2020,” which is the lead single from the album. He released a clip of the song and he showed off the accompanying dance and challenged his fans to do the #FutsalShuffle along with him. He tweeted “The Single that I’m going with From Eternal Atake is a Dance Record called FUTSAL ⚽️ . THE DANCE IS CALLED THE FUTSAL SHUFFLE . THE FUTSAL SHUFFLE WILL TAKE OVER 2020.” The song became a viral dance craze and earned Uzi the No. 5 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
Eternal Atake is out on all streaming platforms. Take a look at some of the fan’s reactions to Uzi’s surprise Eternal Atake drop.
