“My album family,” he captioned the reveal with a heart emoji.
“We’re all musicians, but we weren’t always doing music,” he shared in a previous statement. “Some days we played football or walked around taking pictures. And the bi-product [sic] to that was very beautiful music. Because when you marry that ethos with world-class musicians and the best producers, writers, and artists in the world, and we’re in one space, that’s a recipe for something that no one can really imagine. You can’t even calculate what that’s going to come up with. And it came up with a big chunk of this album.”
