Lil Uzi Vert Set to Release Long-Awaited 'Pink Tape' Album This Friday

The wait is finally over. Lil Uzi Vert, the American rapper and singer, has announced the release of his much-anticipated third studio album, 'Pink Tape'. The album, which follows his extended play 'Red & White' (2022), is set to be released through Generation Now and Atlantic Records on June 30, 2023​​.

Fans of the rapper have been eager for the release of the 'Pink Tape' since Uzi first teased the album in December 2020 during a two-hour-long Instagram Live, promising to drop a mixtape exclusively on SoundCloud​. The album title, announced in an Instagram post on July 16, 2021, possibly references the $24 million pink diamond that the rapper had pierced into his forehead in February of the same year​.

Uzi had initially promised a fan that the tape would be out before Halloween of 2021. However, he later retracted those statements, explaining that he needed more time to ensure the quality of his work. "You gotta let me take my time… I'm taking my time so it won't suck," he told fans​. In a live stream with Kai Cenat on December 2, 2021, Uzi confirmed that the album would be completed that very night​​.

The lead single "Just Wanna Rock" from the album has already made it to the top 10. Philadelphia native DJ Drama suggested that the album was in its final stages, mentioning that over 680 songs were contenders for the album's tracklist​​.

In an Instagram live on June 18, 2023, with Kai Cenat, Uzi shared updates about the rollout and tracklisting of the album. The tracklist would feature twenty-seven songs, including "Just Wanna Rock", and two bonus songs that are "special to me, that some people love that didn't really get to reach the day of light," Uzi noted. He also confirmed the release date of June 30 and added, "Not that many features, but it's the features that everybody thinks I should have… where I started is where imma finish"​​.

The cover art for the album was revealed on June 26, 2023, on their website, along with the release of a Gibson Hazard directed trailer to build anticipation leading up to the album's release​​. However, all track titles aside from "Just Wanna Rock" are yet to be revealed​​.

The upcoming album has been described as "a unique project that will definitely stand out" among the artist's previous works. The long-awaited 'Pink Tape' is expected to deliver a unique blend of Uzi's signature style, a showcase of his growth as an artist, and possibly, a new direction in his music​​.

Lil Uzi Vert's 'Pink Tape' promises to be a thrilling ride for all his fans who have patiently waited for its release. As Friday

approaches, the anticipation only builds.
