6LACK is back with his brand new Album ‘East Atlanta Love Letter’ featuring J. Cole, Future, Offset & Khalid.
Over the past few weeks, 6LACK has really picked up the promo for his new album by first mailing out 20,000 postcards to some die hard fans with the project’s cover art unveiled. Along with that, the ATL singer also shared the star-studded tracklist & songs likes “Nonchalant” & “Switch” to further build hype, but now after months of anticipation the wait is over. East Atlanta Love Letter is here!
Born Ricardo Valdez Valentine, 6LACK was raised in Atlanta’s Zone 6 and had his first recording experience at his father’s studio at the age of four. Inspired by R&B and soul artists like Sade and Usher, he taught himself to sing as a teenager and began writing intensely personal songs that drew from his relationships and experiences with homelessness. Soon after joining Atlanta-based creative collective LoveRenaissance (LVRN), he landed a deal with Interscope Records and set to work on FREE 6LACK. Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a brooding rumination on feeling free that plays like a hip-hop-informed version of The xx’s tight and skeletal gloom,” the album climbed to #34 on the Billboard 200.
Not forgetting that his previous project FREE 6LACK scored a Grammy Award nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album, with its double-platinum lead single “Prblms” amassing more than 99 million Spotify streams to date.
He also spent much of 2017 on the road, which included supporting Migos in New Zealand and Australia and opening for The Weeknd on his Starboy: Legend of the Fall Tour. In February 2018, 6LACK premiered an atmospheric slow jam named “Cutting Ties.”
The incredible 6lack is now back again with his brand new Album.
Two focus tracks are ‘Pretty Little Fears’ Feat. J.Cole and ‘East Atlanta Love Letter’ Feat. Future.
Enjoy playing this incredible body of work.
