There were hints that something was afoot. On Friday (March 20), a countdown started on the entertainer's website, , signifying that something was coming. Glover and his team have been mum on the countdown, leaving fans to only speculate. Now, the wait is over.
The new arrival comes a week after the Atlanta creator debuted the same new music via the same website on March 15, 2020, giving meaning to the title. The 12-song collection dropped out of the blue and was only available for live stream and not uploaded to streaming services, leaving everyone wondering if it was officially a new album or just a collection of songs. However, it was mysteriously pulled from the site several hours after it premiered. Just days after the songs dropped, Adidas announced its year-long partnership with Glover had ended.
Gambino is coming off a huge year in 2019, despite not releasing a project. His hit single "This Is America" won multiple awards at the 2019 Grammys including Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Rap/Sung Performance and Best Music Video. He also put out the film Guava Island co-starring Rihanna and had a role in the Lion King remake. His television series, Atlanta, has been renewed for a third and fourth season. Both will debut in 2021.
