The follow-up to Pusha T’s Grammy Award-nominated DAYTONA album is nearly complete. King Push joined Mr. Biddy Barnes’ Behind the Velvet Rope Instagram Live show on Tuesday (March 30) to provide fans with an update on the untitled project.
The album will boast 12 tracks in total and before taking it across the finish line, Pusha T plans to lock in with G.O.O.D. Music founder Kanye West for another session and get his stamp of approval.
“I’m working on the album right now,” he said. “Probably 12 [songs]. I usually don’t do a lot of extras, but I feel like I have some extras right now, but I’m gonna keep 12. I gotta go sit-in with [Kanye] for a little bit, but other than that, it’s just these 12.”
The G.O.O.D. Music president has high expectations for his album, expecting it to be the best of the year when it’s all set and done.
“I’m going to have the best album that drops in 2021 for sure,” Pusha declared.
There still isn’t a firm release date for the effort, but Pusha promised to deliver this year. DAYTONA was produced by Kanye and kicked off G.O.O.D. Music’s summer run in May of 2018. Pusha T received a Grammy nomination in the Best Rap Album category for his third LP but lost out to Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy.
Earlier this month, Pusha T hit the studio with longtime collaborator Pharrell where he was all smiles working with his close friend of more than two decades.
“If kilograms is the proof, I done sold the Golden Goose,” he wrote. “I got em baby I’m Jim Purdue, Cocaine’s Dr. Seuss – Self. The Difference Is…”
