This is not the album, but that doesn’t mean fans aren’t just as excited. Mahomies, the dedicated supporters of Austin Mahone, have had news of his new project trending on and off for a while now.
This Is Not the Album includes 19 songs featuring everyone from ex-girlfriend Becky G and Sage the Gemini to Chris Brown, and it showcases a transition from pure pop to a hip-hop-influenced sound akin to collaborator Brown. Fans were treated to a live mixtape listening party on YouNow that featured Mahone introducing each song before playing it. Viewers then got to watch Mahone dance in an office chair while lip-syncing along.
Despite the long — and name-drop-filled — track list, the songs are all available on wetransfer and Soundcloud, meaning Mahone still hasn’t released a debut studio album. For Mahomies, this mixtape represents hope that that’s the “Dirty Work” singer’s next move. Maybe his celebrity fans can put some pressure on him to start working on the album.
Love you MAN! Gonna blast the album all the way to Miami!!! See you there! https://t.co/MM46AsQlBs
