Carti says “it's time” for new music
Playboi Carti announces new music reportedly arriving at the beginning of 2023. On Christmas day, the 26-year-old rapper returned on Twitter with a “hello” to his 2.4M followers while teasing new music. “Love all my supporters it's time,” he wrote, sparking excitement from fans since he doesn't post on social media so often, especially about new music. He also shared a screenshot of four unreleased songs on Instagram stories.
During one of his Twitch streams over the weekend, DJ Akademiks said he received confirmation that Carti has new music on the way. “They said Carti is in the zone. Just like his tweet said, ‘it is time,'” Akademiks said before adding that the album will drop “maybe January or February.”
While speaking to XXL in April, the Whole Lotta Red rapper said he planned to name his next album Music. “I was about to name my album Music because that's where I'm at, you know what I'm saying? Music,” he explained. When asked to clarify what the title of the forthcoming album will be, he clarified, “Music because that's all it is at this point.”
