Finally, it has arrived.
Today is no ordinary “New Music Friday.” Yes, prominent names like Megan Thee Stallion, Rich The Kid, Gunna, and Jadakiss have come through with fresh drops, but the name that’s eluded streaming services for the better part of two-years has risen. Lil Uzi Vert has finally unleashed Eternal Atake.
The road to Eternal Atake’s release has been paved with as many potholes as it has been with promise. Originally announced in July ‘18 via Uzi’s twitter, the second official studio album from the enigmatic figure has taken the industry standard of album delays to a new level; “false starts” don’t even begin to depict the justified fan frustration.
But today, March 6th, Lil Uzi has decided to bless this beyond patient fanbase with the loaded Eternal Atake — and dare we say it was worth the wait?
Coming in at 18-tracks, 62-minutes, Eternal Atake is a vocally featureless effort — save for the Syd-assisted “Urgency” — but finds collaborations in unassuming places: Chief Keef produced “Chrome Heart Tags”; Travis Scott gave the blessing to sample “way back” on “Prices”; Uzi interpolated Backstreet Boys’ smash-hit “I Want It That Way” on “That Way.”
The long — borderline unfair — wait for the fabled Lil Uzi Vert album has come to a screeching halt. Eternal Atake has arrived.
