“THE WAIT IS OVAH!!!”
Fans are speculating that a new Kendrick Lamar album could be in the works following a post from Top Dawg Entertainment boss Anthony Tiffith.
In a cryptic post, shared on social media this past Wednesday, it wrote “THE WAIT IS OVAH!!!” along with a teaser video of a ‘loading’ bar. At the end of the clip, the date May 7 2021 appeared.
Kendrick Lamar’s Award-winning album DAMN was released over four years ago, and fans have been anxiously awaiting a follow-up album ever since. Although there have been hints that Lamar has been working on his next project, the team hasn’t said a word about a release date for his specifically.
Twitter was split between those who were hopeful about the possible release and some who did not want to get their hopes too high. It didn’t take long for people to start expressing their excitement about the announcement.
Lamar was due to headline Glastonbury this year, giving even more reason to believe he might have a new album to be released in summer.
However, SZA’s fans are also hoping that she is the artist that has a new album on the way.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan earlier this year, she said that the follow-up to her 2017 album Ctrl would be out this year.
“This album is going to be the s*** that made me feel something in my (heart and gut),” she said.
“That’s what’s going to go on the album. I’m making all different types of s*** every day from different places in my spirit.”
Whichever artist drops a project, it’s sure to be a hit. Stay tuned to see what TDE has in store.
