Lil Yachty gets in his feelings on his long-awaited debut album Teenage Emotions.
The 21-track project features Migos (“Peek a Boo”), Diplo (“Forever Young”), Sonyae Elise (“Momma”), and YG and Kamaiyah (“All Around Me”).
But the highly-anticipated project also features plenty of, well, Teenage Emotions. “[The album] caters to a teenager’s everyday lifestyle-heartbreak,” said Lil Boat. “Happiness, that vibe when you waking up in the morning getting dressed and you just wanna dance.”
Despite its happy vibes, Lil Yachty recently told Beats 1 that it wasn’t so pleasing to complete due to pressure.
“There was so much pressure in the beginning,” he said. “This is what I had to learn and I know I’ll be much smoother on my next album. When I made Lil Boat, my first mixtape, I didn’t have a drop date, a due date. I didn’t have critics rating it. I was just making it. And then when I finished it, I dropped it at my own smoothness, at my own pace…I didn’t even know I was gonna make an album like this. [Now], my only goal is to impress my fans.”
Looks like Lil Boat was able to sail past the pressure. Stream Teenage Emotions below.
