The wait is ovah.
After remaining quiet all 2021, TDE has announced that it will make its long-awaited return next week. On Wednesday, the label’s CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith shared a trailer that shows a loading bar that gets to the end before “5/7/21” flashes on screen.
“THE WAIT IS OVAH!!!!” he tweeted.
The official TDE account also reposted the May 7 date.
It’s unclear which of the label’s artists will be dropping, but fans are hoping for new music from Kendrick Lamar, whose last album DAMN. was released in 2017.
In September, the pgLang founder was spotted shooting a music video in downtown Los Angeles. The following month, TDE President Terrence “Punch” Henderson shared that the follow-up to 2017’s DAMN. would arrive “pretty soon.”
The May 7 drop could also include new music from other members of TDE such as Ab-Soul, Isaiah Rashad, and ScHoolboy Q, who hasn’t released an album since 2019’s CrasH Talk. Meanwhile, SZA’s long-delayed album is expected to drop sometime this year.
Twitter exploded as fans weighed in on who could be dropping.
