6LACK has asked his fans to turn on their post notifications on Instagram because he is ready to drop new music any day now.

“Seems like everybody droppin music except me,” he captioned an Instagram post. “Turn on your post notifications. It’s new music season.”

His debut album FREE 6LACK peaked at No. 34 on the Billboard 200 following its May 2017 release. The Grammy-nominated LP featured the hit songs “PRBLMS” and “One Way” and featured appearances from T-Pain and Banks.

Back in 2017, he spoke to GQ about how he knew “PRBLMS,” which was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Performance, would blow up.

“I hate to say I knew it from the jump, but honestly, the night I recorded the song, I had a feeling about it,” he said. “I was recording in the kitchen, and I had got out maybe three lines of the first verse. And I instantly got the text from the girl I was dealing with at the time and that shit literally said, ‘I hate you. I hate you. I hate you. I hate you. I hate you.’”

He continued, “Somebody was like, ‘Put that in the song! Make that a line.’ And I just kept going that night and by the time I was done with it, it just felt like something different than everything else that I did. It wasn’t melodically the sing-iest song, or it wasn’t lyrically the most advanced song, but it just felt like something.”

Most recently, 6LACK dropped his project East Atlanta Love Letter in 2018. The album peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and had star-studded appearances from J. Cole, Offset, Khalid and Future.

Since then, he’s been featured on a few singles such as Summer Walker’s “Like It,” Tinashe’s “Touch & Go” and Kaash Paige’s “Love Songs (Remix).”
