Lil Uzi Vert is sharing new information about The Pink Tape, his follow-up album to Eternal Atake. At the 18th anniversary celebration of JAY-Z’s 40/40 club, Uzi revealed that the album is in its mixing stage. While Eternal Atake was Uzi’s highest-selling album to date, some fans complained about subpar mixing on certain tracks, and it seems as though those concerns have been heard. This time around, Uzi is going for a sound that is “experimental with the music and traditional on the mixing.” When asked how he feels about The Pink Tape on a scale of 1-10, Uzi said “I’m feeling really good about it,” and that he thinks “this is it.”
Fans first got confirmation of The Pink Tape on an Instagram live stream in December 2020, and ever since then, Uzi has been teasing fans with snippets of tracks off the record. Earlier this month, Uzi revealed that the tracklist would include old and new songs, and that the record would drop exclusively on SoundCloud. But given the changes that this project has undergone, only time will tell exactly how it shakes out. With the album in its final mixing stages, we expect a late 2021 or early 2022 release date.
