It’s been nearly a year since Lil Uzi Vert first teased the title of his upcoming album Eternal Atake and half of that time he has claimed it finished and ready. His retirement announcement in favor of a more "normal life" threw fans for a loop and raised a lot of questions. Why drop a new album at all if he plans to retire? Will he hold back the album as a result of the retirement?
Will he appear in any collaborations in the future? Despite the announcement, he has seemingly been making progress towards making more music, signified by his release of two singles in April: “Sanguine Paradise” and “That’s a Rack"(Complex). On May 10 at Rolling Loud music festival, Uzi announced he had finished the album. It is currently unknown if he has made or plans to make any more music before his retirement.
Lil Uzi Vert will definitely be an artist to keep an eye on for any activity in the coming months as fans eagerly await the drop of what may be his last album ever and anticipate it to be one of his best.
