“I’m working on an album now,” he said. “There’s so much to say in these times that will give people hope and hopefully uplift people’s spirits. Because it’s a dark time in America. It’s a dark time in the world.”
His last release Hollywood’s Bleeding featured a slew of epic collabs with Halsey (“Die For Me”), Young Thug (“Goodbyes”), Travis Scott and Ozzy Osbourne (“Take What You Want”). The album went on to debut at No.1 on the Billboard 200.
