People are getting fed up waiting for Atlanta rap star Playboi Carti to drop his third studio album titled Whole Lotta Red. After a fan asked him to release it during the hectic coronavirus lockdown, the elusive hip-hop entertainer caved in and addressed the situation.

Big Facts

Playboi relied on the power of social media to address the situation. The hip-hop heavyweight went into his comments section to keep it 100 on his absence.

“I never left. Hey. Stay with me. I owe you the world and I know it. I love you and everyone. And my universe.”

High-Key Details

Playboi came through for fans in May 2018 when he put out his Die Lit album. His sophomore project debuted at No. 3 on Billboard 200.

For the third week in a row, Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys sits atop the Billboard 200 chart dated May 26, as the album earned 147,000 equivalent album units in the week ending May 17 (down 24 percent), according to Nielsen Music. Rapper Playboi Carti earns his best week yet, as his surprise release Die Lit debuts at No. 3 with 61,000 units. Closing out the top 10 is rapper Tee Grizzley’s debut studio album Activated, which arrives at No. 10 with 33,000 units (with 26,000 of that in SEA units). (Billboard)

Wait, There’s More

The rap star has kept busy as of late. Carti recently linked up with Texas hip-hop artist Post Malone to work on some music.

Before You Go

In December 2019, his now-ex and fellow rapper Iggy Azalea clarified their relationship status. Azalea made sure the world knew how much still cared for Playboi despite being single.
