21 Savage announced that he will release his third solo album entitled “American Dream” on Friday (December 12) via Slaughter Gang and Epic Records.

According to a press release, the new project serves as the soundtrack for 21 Savage’s debut film, “American Dream: The 21 Savage Story,” for which he unveiled a trailer on Monday.

The trailer, directed by Donald Glover, Stephen Glover, Jamal Olori and Fam Udeorji, features three generations of 21 Savage played by Caleb McLaughlin (Stranger Things), Glover (Atlanta) and himself, “in the heat of a personal crisis,” according to the release.

The clip also previewed a new track from the rapper, who was born Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph in London and raised in Atlanta since he was 7 years old, which starts off with a sample of Rose Royce‘s 1978 hit “Wishing On A Star.”

The film also features Natasha Lyonne, Jabari Banks, Victoria Pedretti, Young Mazino, Chad Lindberg, Gail Bean and Druski, and is set to include new music as well.

“American Dream” marks the rapper’s first solo album since 2018’s “I Am > I Was,” which earned Savage his first career #1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 Albums Chart as a solo artist, and a Grammy nomination for “Best Rap Album” and a Grammy win for “Best Rap Song” (“a lot”).

In the time since, he’s released two collaborative albums including 2020’s “Savage Mode II” with producer Metro Boomin and 2022’s “Her Loss” with Drake.
