6LACK Reveals Tracklist for New Album ‘Since I Have A Lover’
Album Cover For Since I Have A Lover

After a half-decade-long dry spell, 6LACK returns with his highly anticipated third studio album, “Since I Have a Lover.” Known for his introspective and moody R&B sound, 6LACK does not disappoint with this latest offering. With 19 tracks spanning just under an hour, “Since I Have a Lover” is a cohesive and well-crafted album that showcases 6LACK’s growth as an artist and songwriter. He has heightened his mind with the truest understanding of love and self-exploration. In so, taking this time away from the spotlight truly gives us an elevated and exuberant collection of songs.

The album starts strong with the opening track “cold feet,” which sets the tone for the rest of the project. The song shuffles through several recorded messages: the first being what seems to be a fan doing a spoken letter to the artist, Ricardo Valentine also known as 6LACK, explaining how she needs new music immediately. The track then stutters and switches to a conversation between 6LACK and his daughter about “being someone.” It then repeats back to the fan letter in which she ends by saying, “…and your fans are starving, so feed us.” 6LACK used these recordings to show the growing pressure he faced from fans and the media to release a new project whilst on his leave.

Facing this pressure can cause fear or even getting “cold feet” when it comes to producing the new project since there were many years in between there is always the uncertainty of living up to expectations. 6LACK’s way of capturing the fear and the essence of pushing forward is absolutely phenomenal in this opening track.

From there, the album takes the listener on a journey through love, heartbreak, spirituality, and self-reflection. Tracks like “Talk” and “Talkback” showcase 6LACK’s vulnerability as he writes about how he struggled with mental health issues, leaving him to seek help through therapy and other resources. On the other hand, songs like “B4L” and “wunna dem” offer more upbeat and energetic moments, focusing on the way to incorporate love and joy into our lives to find our inner peace.

One of the standout tracks on the album is “Temporary,” which features guest vocals from hip-hop star, Don Toliver. The two artists complement each other perfectly, with Don Toliver’s unique and captivating vocals adding depth and harmony to the track. Another standout is “Inwood Hill Park” a hauntingly beautiful track focusing on self-development and forming a new lifestyle based on finding a newfound lover.

Throughout the album’s entirety, 6LACK’s lyrics are introspective and personal, exploring sensitive themes. He doesn’t shy away from culpability, often sharing his struggles and insecurities with the listener. This level of honesty and authenticity is what sets 6LACK apart from many of his peers in the R&B genre. Even within the album itself, he strays away from his usual ambient beats and moody tones and brings forth a sense of psychedelia into the sound.

Queuing in on buzzing acoustic guitars and lighter sounds, 6LACK truly reinvented himself and his entire sound on this new project, allowing us to view his craft from a new perspective than what was seen on “FREE 6LACK” and “East Atlanta Love Letter.” Almost as if the artist has allowed us to relive his journey of development one emotion at a time.

Overall, “Since I Have a Lover” is a strong and cohesive album that showcases 6LACK’s growth and change over the past five years and gives us way to view life in an way that uniquely and comfortably human . It’s groundbreaking and introspective sound makes it the perfect soundtrack for anyone going through mental health issues or a period of self-reflection. If you’re a fan of 6LACK’s previous work, this album is worth a listen.

After facing a barrage of diss tracks from the likes of Future, Metro Boomin, Kendrick Lamar, and more, Drake returns with a response that appears to have leaked online.

Earlier this week, Rory and Mal of the New Rory and Mal podcast teased the diss on episode 258, with Rory dropping hints like, “Drop down & give me 50,” a line directly lifted from Drake’s response.


Now, the Toronto native fires back, airing out his grievances towards his peers over a 4-minute track sampling Notorious B.I.G.‘s “Get Money.”

Drake’s response to Kendrick Lamar:

“What’s a Prince to a king? He a son, n****”

“Pip squeak pipe down, you ain’t in no big three, SZA got you wipe down, Travis got you wiped down, Savage got you wiped down, like your label boy you Interscope right now” “How the f*** you been big steppin with size 7 mens on”

“Maroon 5 need a verse, you better make it witty, then we need a verse for the Swifties, Top say you drop, you better drop and give up fiftyyy”

Drake’s reply to J. Cole’s apology for dissing Kendrick Lamar: “And that f*cking song y’all got is not starting beef with us/This sh*t been brewing in a pot, now I’m heating up/I don’t care what Cole think, that Dot sh*t was weak as f*ck”

Drake’s clapback at Rick Ross:

“I might take ya latest girl and cuff her like Ricky, can’t believe he’s jumping in, this n**** turning 50, every song that made it on the chart he got from Drizzy, worry bout whatever going on with you and—”

Drake’s response to Metro Boomin:

“Metro shut your h*e ass and make some drums, n****”
