Jimmy Fontaine/Atlantic RecordsB.o.B has big plans for his fourth album, a project that he says could be released “right now, but I don’t feel like there’s a need to.”
In an interview with Billboard, Bobby Ray revealed that he’s letting down his guard on the follow-up to 2013’s Underground Luxury.
“This album, for me, is just a lot more vulnerable where I’m coming from,” B.o.B tells the publication. “I feel like it’s a more organic place. I think a lot of the success I experienced in the past four, five years had to really soak in and set in for me. Now I feel like I’m at a place where I have a blank canvas. The music comes from a real place, so whatever type of music you make…If you want to make party music, you got to party. If you want to make rock music, you got to play the guitar. I kinda goes hand in hand with whatever you’re making. That’s the kind of space I’m in.”
The rapper adds that in addition to having Trey Songz on the banger “Not for Long,” he’s lined up collaborations with Lil Wayne and T.I. for “real special songs,” adding, “I like to only call in those big favors when there’s something special, so hopefully everyone else will agree.”
So when will the set be released? B.o.B says that he’s eying “a late spring, summer” release.
