It wasn’t too long after Migos dropped their career-altering album Culture that they began teasing their sophomore record Culture II. And at long last, the project finally has a release date. On Monday night (Jan. 15), the Georgia-based clique revealed that Culture II will be available to fans beginning January 26th via Quality Control/Motown/Capitol.
Migos have had quite the busy year since releasing their platinum record Culture. Offset, Quavo, and TakeOff made it their business to finish off 2017 strong. First, they tapped rappers Cardi B and Nicki Minaj to assist on the single “MotorSport“. And just before 2017 came to a close, Migos dropped the Pharrell-produced “Stir Fry“. You can check out both tracks, which are set to appear on Culture II, below.
Though still a week away from the release of Culture II, the album has already garnered a lot of hype and appreciation. “Stir Fry” is now the official song of the 2018 NBA All-Star Weekend, and for good reason. The influence of Pharrell shines through on “Stir Fry”, a banger that could get just about anyone moving.
A few days ago (Jan. 15), Quavo tweeted a video titled “CULTURE NATIONAL ANTHEM” that featured a snippet of new music. The clip included footage of Martin Luther King, Jr., and it ended with a graphic teasing the arrival of Culture II. “Oh say, can you see, my people pain…We don’t need stripes, we got bright stars,” Quavo croons in the snippet. Check out the preview below.
