Multi-platinum superstar Lil Uzi Vert has officially announced the release of his hugely anticipated new album, “Eternal Atake” available now via Generation Now/Atlantic Records.
“Eternal Atake” – which follows 2017’s 2x RIAA platinum certified, chart-topping milestone, “Luv Is Rage 2” – was preceded earlier this week by “BabyPluto,” a short film directed by the acclaimed creator Gibson Hazard (Drake, Billie Eilish, G-Eazy).
Furthermore, “Eternal Atake” includes the recently released songs, “That Way” and “Futsal Shuffle 2020.” The latter track dropped last December and immediately proved a blockbuster, rising to #5 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” – Lil Uzi Vert’s highest charting solo single to date. The mass success of “Futsal Shuffle 2020” was of course fueled in part by its irresistible signature dance, invented by Uzi and featured in the track’s official companion video now boasting over 20 million individual views via YouTube alone.
Meanwhile, “That Way” dropped earlier this week and was immediately met by wide-ranging media attention and critical acclaim. The track – which interpolates the indelible hook from Backstreet Boys’ classic “I Want It That Way” – is “a return to the shoulder shimmying, eye-rolling, singing Hayley Williams in the backseat of a car Uzi,” raved Pitchfork, “whose animated personality made his meteoric rise possible.”
Acclaimed as an energetic and unpredictable live artist, Lil Uzi Vert will celebrate “Eternal Atake” with a busy concert schedule, including performances at the upcoming Coachella Music Festival (Sunday, April 12th & 19th), Rolling Loud Miami (Sunday, May 10th) and Portimão, Portugal’s Rolling Loud Portugal (July 8th -10th).
“Eternal Atake” arrives more than two long years after Uzi’s historic debut album, “Luv Is Rage 2.” Currently certified 2x RIAA platinum for sales exceeding 2 million in the US alone, the album made an explosive chart debut upon its August 2017 release, arriving at #1 on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 as well as both Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” and “Top Rap Albums” charts. “Luv Is Rage 2” showcased an array of hits, including the 7x platinum certified landmark, “XO Tour Llif3.”
