The upcoming second studio album by American record producer and record executive Metro Boomin is allegedly titled “Heroes and Villains.”
The title of Metro’s upcoming album was revealed by DJ Holiday in a letter he received from the producer, which he (DJ Holiday) shared on his Instagram story on Thursday.
“DJ, Holiday, I cannot believe it’s been 3 years since we released Not All Heroes Wear Capes. Thank you for your continued support. Heroes and Villains coming soon!!. Young Metro,” the letter reads.
The upcoming album will follow Metro’s first studio album, Not All Heroes Wear Capes (2018), and his compilation album with 21 Savage Savage Mode II (2020).
In August, Metro Boomin shared photos of himself in the studio with the caption, “been making some of the best music of my life.”
In September, he shared photos of himself with Don Toliver in the studio. On October 20, Metro shared pictures of himself with Grammy-winning Nigerian singer, Wizkid. On October 22, 2021, he was pictured with Young Thug and Travis Scott in the studio.
On October 26, Metro was pictured with Canadian singer The Weeknd in the studio. The following day, he shared a photo of himself with rapper A$AP Rocky in the studio.
Earlier in November, the record producer shared another photo with A$AP Rocky with more pictures of him going through old records. He captioned the post, “would you believe if I tell u my next album is better than my last?”. Later the same month, he shared a photo with him, 21 Savage and record producer, songwriter, and rapper Southside.
Within five years of his first output with Future, Leland Wayne produced well over a dozen Top 20 R&B/hip-hop hits and a similar quantity of gold and platinum RIAA certifications.
The St. Louis, Missouri native, did it with a low-gloss, jet-black sound sufficiently reflected in his alias, Metro Boomin. Wayne got into production during his early teens and rapped, though he eventually opted to devote all his energy to beatmaking.
He connected with artists through social media. Before graduating high school, he’d logged thousands of miles on round trips to Atlanta, where he worked with the likes of OJ da Juiceman and, eventually, Gucci Mane and Future.
In 2018, he brought more career peaks, not only for his input on notable albums by Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne but also for his project, Not All Heroes Wear Capes. Arriving in late 2018, the album featured Travis Scott, Young Thug, and Gucci Mane.
In addition to topping the Billboard 200, R&B/Hip-Hop, and Rap charts upon release, seven of the album’s thirteen tracks charted on the Hot 100. In 2020, Wayne resumed his partnership with 21 Savage and delivered Savage Mode II, which topped the Billboard 200.
The released date for Heroes and Villains is yet to be known; however, it is expected to be released before the summer of 2022.
