－ 6lack has been teasing the release of his sophomore album, East Atlanta Love Letter, for some time. Now, he’s announced that a lucky few will have the pleasure of previewing the project in a wildly unique way.
After releasing one of the best R&B albums of 2017, the Grammy-nominated East Atlanta native is ready to follow up with a bang. About 2 weeks ago, 6lack dropped the official cover for East Atlanta Love Letter which damn near broke the internet by itself. However, the tracklist, which includes features from J. Cole, Young Thug, Khalid, Offset, and Future, sent fans further into a frenzy. If that wasn’t enough, 6lack has now put together an album listening experience that won’t be easily forgotten.
Tomorrow (Thursday, September 13th) you can join 6lack at Starlight Drive-In Theater on the historic Moreland Ave. to listen to the album before its official release. According to 6lack, the best way to experience an album for the first time is in the car with your friends and I can’t say I disagree.
The event will be held from 7pm -10pm and will only allow the first 140 cars to enter on a first come first serve basis.
If you’re free tomorrow night, make sure you check it out. Not only is the event bound to be quite an experience, but East Atlanta Love Letter is expected to be one of the better album drops of the year from one of Atlanta’s best young talents.
