A Boogie Wit da Hoodie isn’t taking any chances his new album will be overlooked due to Drake and 21 Savage’s upcoming joint project … so he’s delaying things once again.
A Boogie revealed the new drop for his “Me vs. Myself” album will be in December. TMZ Hip Hop got more specifics … the exact date will be Dec. 9, in case you’re marking it on your calendar.
Unlike most artists who typically blame sample clearances or technical issues for pausing a project, A Boogie openly admits he’s ducking a Billboard chart showdown with Drake … who earned his eleventh No. 1 album over the summer with his dance-infused “Honestly, Nevermind.”
A Boogie had just begun to preview his album last week, dropping the single for “Take Shots” which features Tory Lanez
Drake and 21 actually started a domino effect of album delays after they shuffled their “Her Loss” album from its original date of October 28. Drizzy blamed it on his go-to producer Noah “40” Shebib contracting COVID-19.
The switched-up release enabled Drake and 21 to avoid sharing a headline with Rihanna’s new ‘BP’ soundtrack record, as well as Taylor Swift’s current record-breaking storm over the music industry.
A Boogie obviously knows a smart biz decision when he sees it.
