Kanye West recently teased fans with a track from the album called ‘Vultures,’ featuring Bump J. The anticipation soared even higher when Ty Dolla $ign dropped the tracklist for their upcoming album. The tracklist not only teased the content of the album but also confirmed the release of the much-awaited joint track by Kanye West and Nicki Minaj, ‘New Body.’ With all this buzz building up, there is no doubt that the album will be one of the biggest releases of the year.

Playboi Carti to return with his banger after three years

Playboi Carti first hit the scene with his debut mixtape in 2017. After a three-year gap, he made a striking return with the critically acclaimed sophomore album, ‘Whole Lotta Red’, in 2020. Now, in 2023, after another three years, the artist has caught fans off guard with the release of the video for his latest track, ‘UR THE MOON’. The rapper has been teasing this track for quite some time on social media and also got some help in promotion from legends like Pharrell and The Weeknd.

As per speculations, this new track could be part of his upcoming album, possibly titled ‘Music’. The first time the rapper teased the song was in the middle of November when he confirmed the Antagonist Tour, which was supposed to kick off this fall. Fans who were already hyped from the teasing are currently on cloud 9 as the rapper finally unleashed a track after three long years.

Frank Ocean danced to his unreleased song in a recording studio

Frank Ocean is not missing out on the trend of teasing tracks from upcoming albums either. Since his Coachella performance earlier this year, and his last album dropped in 2016, one has not heard much about the rapper. After a relatively quiet period, the rapper is back in the spotlight. He has been teasing fans on social media with snippets of an untitled mid-tempo R&B jam for quite a while now. 

In a recent Instagram story, he posted a video of himself dancing to the unreleased song in a recording studio, which sparked a flurry of speculations among fans. This tease came just weeks after Ocean shared another minute-long snippet on his Instagram story, on which he was heard crooning over a droning keyboard. With all these clues in hand, it is safe to say the Frank Ocean is gearing up for an epic comeback after years.
