On Wednesday (Dec. 4), French Montana announced his soon-to-be-released next album, Montana. The self-titled record will arrive on Friday (Dec. 6), following up Montana’s last released solo album, Jungle Rules from 2017, and his collaborated project with Max B, Coke Wave 4, from this year.
Montana, which boasts two sides, is stacked with features. The album includes contributions from Gunna, A$AP Rocky, Kevin Gates, Kodak Black, Belly, posthumous Chinx, Max B, Travis Scott, Post Malone, Cardi B, RVSSIAN, Swae Lee, Chris Brown, PartyNextDoor, Juicy J, City Girls, Drake, Quavo, Logic, Lil Tjay and Blueface.
So far, Montana has teased the album by releasing project cuts “Twisted,” “Writing on the Wall,” “Suicide Doors,” “No Stylist” and, most recently, “Out Of Your Mind.”
“Back to finish what we started... Friday,” he wrote on Instagram.
Last week, Montana was released from an ICU unit after a lengthy stay. The rapper was suffering from exhaustion, dehydration, an irregular heartbeat and severe stomach pain.
“Thank you Everyone for all of the prayers, love and support,” he wrote in an Instagram post on Friday (Nov. 29). “I’m finally out of ICU and am getting better one day at a time!!!”
“CANT KEEP ME DOWN !!Been workin hard on my new album and I’m so proud to announce it’s coming THIS FRIDAY !!! #MONTANAThe music is keepin my spirit alive,” he wrote in a second post. “THANK YOU to my fans, love y’all for ridin with me thru this journey.”
Besides his musical output, this year has also seen Montana embark on several philanthropic ventures and causes. In October, he partnered with Jhené Aiko and DJ Khaled to help launch the American Cancer Society’s Get #YOUnited Campaign. The campaign aimed to spread awareness and raise funding toward breast cancer research, a cause that Montana previously supported with breast cancer “thriver,” Nalie Agustin.
This past September, Montana was also named the first ambassador of I Stand With Immigrants, an initiative that highlights empowering immigration stories.
Look out for Montana, arriving Friday (Dec. 6).
