Back in May of 2020, the news had leaked in a clip released on Twitter.
“It’s from his new record,” Jafa said in the clip. “It’s called God’s Country and this will be, like, the first single, I guess, off of it. I don’t know if I’m ’posed to not be announcing it or whatever. I may just be spilling the beans.”
As the conversation continues, Jafa shares that while he knows that new music exists, he cannot confirm a definite release date.
“But yeah, it’s from a new record that’s forthcoming,” he says. “I don’t know when the album is coming out but the single, I think, maybe sometime next week. Maybe. It’s not sure. It’s not definite.”
