Since he first tweeted about it on July 16, 2018, fans waited 599 days for Lil Uzi Vert‘s Eternal Atake to drop — and on but Friday (March 6), it finally did. The week brought more new music treasures, too, including Demi Lovato‘s self-love anthem “I Love Me,” Megan Thee Stallion‘s hotly anticipated debut album Suga, and Bad Bunny‘s YHLQMDLG reggaetón record.
Fans will recall Uzi’s struggle with his Generation Now label to release his long-awaited, out-of-this-world LP, which Megan can relate to after her week in court with her 1501 Certified Entertainment label when a federal judge in Texas ruled Thursday that 1501 CEO Carl Crawford couldn’t halt Suga from coming out.
Meanwhile, pop stars like Lovato and Katy Perry and R&B songbird Jhené Aiko undergo self-discoveries about what it means to love yourself, love someone else and love the physical act of love in their new music.
And with Bad Bunny’s YHLQMDLG, which is an acronym for Yo Hago Lo Que Me Da La Gana, or “I Do Whatever I Want,” his Latin trap production underscores his romantic writing and is a going-out playlist must-add.
