Cordae released a small EP Thursday this week in anticipation for his upcoming sophomore album aptly titled “Just Until….”
It is his first major release since his debut album The Lost Boy came out in 2019 and as the title suggests it’s supposed to be something to tide fans over until he eventually drops his next studio record. Even the cover of the EP reinforces this as well. It features The cover of the EP is minimalist and in a bolded typeface at the bottom text reads, “See you soon, Album almost done. -Cordae.”
The EP also makes use of several high profile features from that of Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest and Young Thug who also recently released a project as well.
In terms of sound its a departure from Cordae’s usual lyrical rapping formula, instead opting for simpler flows, production and traditional choruses. It’s a much more stripped down version of the Grammy-nominated artist than fans are likely used to seeing.
The same day Cordae also released a music video for the opening track of the EP “More Life.” The Video features Cordae returning to previous places that had impacted his life such as his old neighborhood, his middle school and the college he briefly attended.
As far as his upcoming album goes, it seems to be very close to completion according to Cordae himself. A recent Instagram story showed him at his studio with a caption that read “Album loading…. 90% done.” The story that followed corrected the previous stating, “*92.”
Provided there will be no delays it would seem the project is coming along smoothly and should be available for listeners ears very soon.
