Just days after surprise-releasing his highly anticipated Eternal Atake album, Lil Uzi Vert is already plotting his next move. On Sunday (March 8), the rapper hinted to his Twitter followers that a deluxe version of the album was on the way, following up with an announcement on Monday (March 9) for what he’s now calling Eternal Atake’s “second half.”
“Dude I drop the first half of EA second half of Album ON THE WAY,” he wrote.
Uzi previously hinted that the project will have at least eight songs and add significance to the initial album’s tracklist.

“Bro when deluxe drop the real order of album is insane,” he tweeted Sunday (March 8), followed by “You wrong I’m going like 8 songs.”
Eternal Atake currently clocks in 18 tracks, including the previously released bonus songs “That Way” and “Futsal Shuffle 2020.” The record also features a lone appearance from Syd on “Urgency.”
So far, there’s no telling when the Eternal Atake Pt. 2 could arrive, especially seeing as the initial version arrived as a surprise. Many fans expected Uzi to drop the album this Friday (March 13), after he revealed in an Instagram Story late last month that it would arrive in two weeks. Eternal Atake was originally announced in 2018 but suffered several delays, which the rapper has alluded to was a result of his label complications.
Despite the long wait, fans were ecstatic when the record finally arrived. According to XXL, Eternal Atake’s “Baby Pluto” quickly dethroned Roddy Ricch’s “The Box” as the No. 1 song on Spotify’s US Top 50 Chart. Ricch’s single had previously held the coveted spot since Dec. 26.
Elsewhere on Twitter, Uzi also responded to a fan’s question about his unreleased collaborations with Playboi Carti — another artist whose next album has suffered delays.
“U said u and Carti has over a thousand songs together, drop one,” a fan tweeted to Uzi.
“I would love [to] just don’t know where he at,” he replied, making it unclear whether any of those unearthed collaborations will land on the Eternal Atake deluxe edition.
