Around mid-March, Montana revealed his first-week sales projection aim.
“May 21st,” French confirmed when asked about his album release date. “I’m trying to crack that big number when I drop. Man, I gotta crack at least 200 [thousand] or better. You never know though. You know what I’m saying? You never know though. It all comes down to the shipping. I don’t care [what’s come out in the past ten years].” (Sirius XM)
The New York native recently promised his LP would be the greatest project to drop in the last decade.
“Rick Ross and [Diddy] are both executive-producing the album,” French said in an interview. “I feel it’s going to be a classic. I feel like it’s going to be the best album to come out in a decade. … The album of the decade because it’s just it. I heard everybody’s album and I’m a fan of everybody and I just don’t feel like nobody came out with an album like this.” (Rap-Up TV)
Over the winter, Montana broke down the message behind his LP’s cover art.
“The cover for my album is kind of like, you know, in this industry you believe everything’s real and it’s not,” Montana explained in an interview. “So I put like a kid walking through the desert. You know in the desert, sometimes you might be so thirsty you see water. And it don’t be nothing there. You know what I’m saying? And it’s the whole journey with me coming from Morocco, North Africa — it’s like me as a kid, just seeing the opportunity to come to a big city, New York, New York, big city of dreams, just making it happen. But it’s just about, this game is dry. So you got to get it how you get it. .. It was more of a statement than anything.” (LA Leakers)
Excuse My French is slated to drop Tuesday, May 21st.
