    Didn't have an actual thread for the album for some reason. Tracklist out now @PaakSXN

    I'm disappointed it's only 9 tracks and we'll have 4 of them before the album drops (including the intro). But I haven't listened properly to anything after leave the door open so it's still fairly fresh. They should've released this a couple of months ago really.

    If you think about it, there was no reason for them to even release that intro...

    Also, this rollout sucks a little. They already explained why they ended up delaying the album, but since we're only getting 5 new tracks, it was really not a good idea.

    Another classic single this week accompanied by another classic video.

    Can’t wait for the project, classic incoming 3/3 so far.

    You guys are seeming to forget this is a brand new group that needs to prove itself & gain a following even though it comprises of famous musicians.

    That’s why the rollout has been this way, along with music videos with every single, they’re allowing a time period for exposure which is clearly the smarter option of dropping an album in this context.

    Although I think this should’ve dropped around summer, it’s not a rap album that requires 15-20 cuts on it. Another point is this is also similar to pre-streaming era rollouts which is the whole point of this groups’ artistry/image.

    i mean I kind of get it. But they should of put more songs on it if they were going to release that many songs before release. I’m looking forward to it none the less

    I think 30 minutes runtime for a debut R&B/soul project that’s intended to be a play-through piece is pretty reasonable in my opinion.

    I've listened to Skate once and refuse to listen to Smoking out the Window until I can absorb the album in full.

    Thriller had 9 songs, didn't it? :thinkinghmmm: And I read some comments about Bruno always having shorter albums.

    I'm not really mad that there aren't that many songs, but it definitely feels like there's less you could look forward to now.

    Maybe they should've dropped the "Smokin out the window" video the same day the album drops, idk.

    Fly As Me, After Last Night and 777 are the highlights for me. Incredible album, just wish it was a bit longer.

    Fly as Me is my anthem right now. Absolutely amazing track. 777 in second place. .Paak over funky beats is paradise.
