After teasing fans with behind the scenes photos, snippets of unreleased tracks, names of potential features and more ahead of his upcoming album Pink Heartz, SoFaygo is now a month away from his grand return.
On Saturday (Sept. 17), Faygo reposted an Instagram story from his manager Lamar that alluded to him releasing the project in October, writing “10/??/22.” Although the official date is still a purposeful mystery, there has been quite bit of build-up from Faygo and his team leading up to next month’s LP.
June and July saw Faygo’s first output of the year, as he ushered in his Pink era with two separate projects, indicative of the high quality music he has been crafting during his hiatus. To warm his fans up for the upcoming studio album, he not only delivered the 5-track teaser tape B4PINK (June 14), but returned a month later to release a secret SoundCloud project titled BABYJACK, neither containing a single feature. With both of these projects, fans grew even more confident that Pink Heartz would be a career-defining moment for the young Atlanta emcee.
Before these releases, Faygo had posted a handful of photos on his Instagram story in May, with one simply captioned “Album 100%..” Along with these clues, he posted a note pad with more potential song titles written down. Although he has already hinted at major features on the project from stars like Lil Uzi Vert, Gunna, Yeat, Ken Carson, The Kid LAROI and more, the official track list and release date have yet to be announced.
Included in the potential list of guest names on the album, it appears Faygo’s Cactus Jack boss Travis Scott may offer a feature verse as well. On April 29, photos surfaced of the two working in the studio, likely prepping collaborative music for one of them to release.
After a show he did on April 26, SoFaygo spoke about how monumental the album is, and how much fans will love it.
“The album coming soon… ‘Pink Heartz’ coming soon. We’ve been working on that sh*t for a long time, and I’m not gonna lie, that sh*t is a masterpiece. When you listen to that sh*t, you’re not gonna want to stop.”SoFaygo on his upcoming LP
Pink Heartz has been a long-awaited next step for Faygo’s career, as it looks to certify the mainstream appeal he flirted with on viral hits like “Knock Knock” and “Everyday.” In an interview from March, SoFaygo gave a brief, yet powerful description of what Pink Heartz represents not only for him, but for his growing fanbase.
“Pink Heartz is the youth, Pink Heartz is young n***a music, Pink Heartz is the future.”SoFaygo on his upcoming LP
With only a couple more weeks until we hit October, SoFaygo’s forthcoming masterpiece will surely be one of, if not the, premier hip-hop album of the month.
