I remember first listening to 6lack earlier this year on the r&b station in iTunes. The song was “PRBLMS”and I think I repeated that song about six times throughout my work day. I looked him up and found “Loyal” “Bless Me” and “Ex Calling.” Right then I needed to know when the album was dropping.
6lack’s debut album came out recently in November. Every single song is like a story. Somehow, someway, he makes each song so relatable and they seem very personal. In a recent interview he said “It’s just kind of a transition period for me. I was stuck in a deal for 4 or 5 years, and this is kind of like my coming out party.” Hence why he called the album Free 6lack.
