Playboi Carti fans have been waiting well over two years for his new album after constant teasers of Whole Lotta Red, but based on his activity this week, it looks like it could finally be dropping soon.

The Atlanta native took to Instagram on Tuesday (November 24) to announce a new collaboration with Kanye West. Carti previewed the song in a 35-second clip, in which Kanye’s vocals can be briefly heard before Carti’s part comes in.

“OK YE @kanyewest,” he said in the caption. “THANK @younglord.”

Despite not confirming the title of the song, Carti took to the comments section hours later to reveal Wheezy produced the track.
