He should've kept Dusk on it so they can certify it Gold at least.
27 Tracks is good for his streaming numbers though

27 is unlistenable on first listen :lol: . But I guess it will have like 12-14 amazing songs, so that will be my personal album. I prefer short ones. Hope there's more tracks like "Let Me" and "Entertainer".

Love the album title, by the way.

I love his debut and that had 20 tracks, so I imagine 27 might also include some interludes like his debut does. But I find the material pretyy okay-ish at best, and I think both I Don't Wanna Live Forever and Dusk Till Dawn are both much stronger than any of the released songs by him from this record. So I am a bit torn.

I'm VERY excited for this! I've been stanning for most of his recent singles so this should be good!

With that being said, hopefully most the tracks are interludes though cause I ain't got no time for 27 tracks. :lol:

I've not really liked any of the songs he's released in the last couple of years but with 27 tracks at least a couple should be good lol

To me, this is a throwaway album to end his contract.

I'm predicting a 'Lotus' level flop on this one. I haven't liked any of the 43 singles since 'Dusk Til Dawn' and then they don't even include that song?

^This era is already dead on arrival. No buzz, no hype, no live performances, nothing at all.
Just scattered songs here and there and an endless album.

Does it get a physical release?

Probably going to buy it anyway, sicne "Mind Of Mine" was an excellent debut album and I am still in love with his voice.

Haven't really loved any of his latest singles, though.

Ya'llz should give Let Me, Entertainer and Sour Diesel another chance! The Nicki track is garbage though.

Gave this tracks various chance, but they stay okay-ish at best for me

"Still Got Time" = mediocre
"Dusk Till Dawn" = great song
"Entertainer" = basic but not that bad
"Let Me" = his best song so far yes I said it
"Sour Diesel" = one of his worst
"Too Much" = a cute groovy bop
"Fingers" = A JAM
"No Candle No Light" = not bad but slightly dated
"Rainberry" = basic and kinda forgotten

Great. In this day and age through with downloads and streaming and playlists, People would just add songs that are obviously part of the same release era as bonus and/or make their own track order anyway if want to.

Entertainer came on whilst I was at the shops about a month or so ago and grew on me a bit, Thought it was a little bit basic when I only heard the snippet when it first came out, It has a nice flow.

Looking forward to seeing the cover art.
