With his selection as one of MTV Base’s artistes to watch this year, indigenous afro-pop/fusion artiste Terry Apala has released his first single of the year, a thumping mid tempo song called ‘Social Media’. In his signature Apala Hip-Hop style, Terry sings about the unrealistic portrayal of their lives that social media encourages people to do for public affirmation.
Despite the strong moral message, Terry’s delivery on the Pitch produced track is sure to make it a fan favourite. If this is any indication of what he has in store this year, it is truly going to be the year ‘Two Thousand and Apala’.
It was rumored that Future will be releasing another album following the release of his self-titled album Future. The Atlanta rapper confirmed that he’s releasing the album he “always wanted to make” titled HNDRXX Friday, February 24th in an Instagram post
This new album was rumored to be “more Rhythmic-leaning and radio-friendly,” according to its sources. It would be his third album in a little over a year, following last week’s self-titled effort and EVOL from last February.
Though another new album would be a surprise, but Future did mention during an interview with Zane Lowe that he had enough material for another album. Future Hendrix’s next release could potentially give him back to back No. 1 albums; his self-titled project is projected to land at No. 1 and sell 145-155,000 equivalent album units, according to Hits Daily Double.
While no track titles have been revealed, both Rihanna and The Weeknd are tagged on Future’s Instagram announcement. “The album I always wanted to make, timing is everything,” wrote Future.
The decision to release two full-length albums in two weeks, each appealing to a different demographic, is certainly not unprecedented—in September 2005, Nelly released Sweat and Suit on the same day—but it’s a bold move nonetheless.
