This week, DJ Snake celebrated his birthday, and it appears the milestone put him in a reflective mood. “You just can’t rush the creative process,” he noted defensively on Twitter. “Great things take time.” Soon after, he made a casual announcement: “My album is done.” He shared no other details about the project.
Though DJ Snake has yet to release an album, he’s been a consistent presence on the pop charts since debuting in 2013 with “Turn Down for What,” featuring Lil Jon; that song peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. His remix of AlunaGeorge’s “You Know You Like It” cracked the top 15, and he helped Major Lazer with “Lean On,” another top five hit. Last year, he released “Middle,” a collaboration with Bipolar Sunshine that climbed to No. 20. This month he unveiled a new tune titled “Talk.”
Though the DJ claims to have finished his album, listeners may not be able to hear it for a while. “I make music almost like every day,” DJ Snake told Forbes last year. “But I don’t release a lot of music. I like to wait and listen to my music every day — the same records — 20 times, 50 times a day [before releasing].”
