Will This Be Thug’s Mainstream Breakthrough?
-Written by Vinny Guarino
Young Thug tweeted a few details about his album this past week hinting at taking a different approach than usual — including working heavily with Drake.
So from all these tweets, we can gather that Young Thug is dropping an album within the next week called Easy Breezy Beautiful Thugger Girls executive produced by Drake and most likely including a lot of singing.
Their collaboration makes sense because Young Thug appeared a few times on Drake’s latest project More Life. He had standout performances on both “Sacrifices” and “Ice Melts.”
Even though Thug and Drake have had good chemistry recently, I have a lot of doubts about this upcoming project. Right out of the gate, I don’t like that he’s calling it a “singing album.” I like when Young Thug experiments vocally; that’s where some of his best songs come from, however I don’t think he can carry a full-length album strictly singing.
Also, his latest single “All The Time” is horrrrrrrrible. Like really really bad. Here’s an excerpt:
Son. I’ve rapped along with a LOT of questionable Young Thug lyrics. But I think I finally found where I draw the line.
Anyway, Young Thug is super unpredictable so it’s possible that he could end up pulling this off. And with Drake overseeing the project, I’m sure there will at least be a few solid jams for the summer.
You’ll hear back from me when this drops — stay tuned!
