Pusha T claims his next album will be the best project of 2021
King Push says a recording session with Kanye West is all that’s left to complete for his ‘Daytona’ follow-up.
The follow-up to Pusha T’s Daytona is on the way. During an Instagram Live chat with Biddy for “Behind the Velvet Rope” on Tuesday (March 30), King Push dropped several bombs about his anticipated next album.
Around 46 minutes into the nearly hour-long interview, Pusha revealed the project will be 12 tracks long, confirmed Kanye West’s inclusion and claimed it will be the “best album” of 2021.
“I’m working on the album right now,” the G.O.O.D. Music president and Heir Wave Music Group founder explained. “I haven’t titled it. Probably 12 [songs]. I usually don’t do a lot of extras. I feel like I have some extras right now but I’m gonna keep 12.”
Push said that another recording session with West, who is producing half of the record, is next up on his agenda.
“I gotta go sit in with ’Ye for a little bit but other than that it’s just these 12,” he continued. “That’s what it’s gonna be.”
The album is also set to arrive this year, though Push didn’t specify an exact release date.
“I’m gonna have the best album that drops in 2021,” he added confidently. “For sure.”
Earlier this month, Steven Victor revealed on Complex Music’s Instagram that Pusha T’s album will boast production from both ‘Ye and Pharrell Williams, with both artists handling about half of the record each.
The news followed Push’s December announcement, where he initially revealed his album would be produced by West and the Neptunes, Pharrell’s highly acclaimed duo with Chad Hugo.
Besides the producers, Push hasn’t confirmed any features on the album and has hinted that he may handle all 12 songs solo.
“I’m well in on my next project,” he said last May. “It’s looking kind of selfish right now, to be honest.”
“I got a lot to say, man. A lot’s went on,” he added. “A lot to address.”
