6lack Preps ‘East Atlanta Love Letter’ Album and New World Tour
The follow-up to 6lack's debut album Free 6lack is coming soon. We don't know when exactly, but the "Prblms" rapper shared the project's title on Instagram yesterday (Aug. 13). He dubs the new full-length East Atlanta Love Letter, and also shares the dates for a new tour.
The announcement comes via an Instagram post featuring a black envelope that reads, "My album is titled East Atlanta Love Letter." 6lack also used the visual trope in June when teasing the project's progress, writing on the envelope, "I think my album is done."
The rapper-singer followed the album announcement by sharing details for a world tour supported by Summer Walker, They., Boogie and Tierra Whack. 6lack plans to hit 34 cities across four countries between Oct. and Dec. Ticket sales open Aug. 17 and will be available via eastatlantaloveletter.com.
So far, we've only heard one song expected to appear on the new project, "Switch," which features backup vocals from Ty Dolla $ign and received a video last month. 6lack also guested with Ty on Khalid's summer single "OTW."
