The multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning music mogul Lil Wayne has announced his highly anticipated 13th solo studio album, symbolically titled, Funeral, will be released Friday, January 31st Young Money Records/Republic Records. Ahead the album’s release, fans can pre-save Funeral and purchase merch.
Funeral follows the massive success Lil Wayne’s long-awaited, RIAA-certified platinum album, Tha Carter V, which debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 with the second-largest streaming week for an album all time. Hailed by critics and fans alike, Variety said, the album has “the crunch the Southern trap and ropey rap-rock sounds that Wayne pretty much started in the first place.” Pitchfork noted, “The long-delayed album captures Wayne how we want to remember him: openhearted, word-drunk, and exhilarated by the possibilities his own versatility.”
This past year, Wayne teamed up with blink-182 for an electric, co-headlining tour across North America. Last week, Wayne partnered with ESPN in celebration the College Football Playf National Championship game to release the catchy track “Playf” featuring Poppy H, Corey Henry & The Treme Funktet.
