21 Savage Announces Third Solo Album ‘American Dream’

Mr. Nimbus | 01/09/2024

21 Savage announced Tuesday (Jan. 9) that he will release his third solo album American Dream on Friday via Slaughter Gang and Epic Records.

According to a press release, American Dream serves as the soundtrack for 21 Savage’s debut film American Dream: The 21 Savage Story, for which he unveiled a trailer on Monday (Jan. 8). The trailer, directed by Donald Glover, Stephen Glover, Jamal Olori and Fam Udeorji, features three generations of 21 Savage — played by Caleb McLaughlin (Stranger Things), Glover (Atlanta) and himself, “in the heat of a personal crisis,” according to the release.

Victoria Pedretti (The Haunting of Hill House), Young Mazino (Beef), Chad Lindberg (Fast & Furious), Gail Bean (Snowfall) and Druski (Praise This) also star in the preview. Olori and Stephen Glover wrote the trailer, which was produced by Udeorji and Tara Razavi, who are also credited as executive producers.

The trailer also previewed a new track from the rapper, who was born Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph in London and raised in Atlanta since he was 7 years old, which starts off with a sample of Rose Royce‘s 1978 hit “Wishing on a Star.” “How you that n—a when you can’t go where you grew up at?” he raps.

American Dream arrives six years after his sophomore album I Am > I Was, which earned the rapper his first Billboard 200 No. 1 album and was nominated for best rap album at the 2020 Grammy Awards. Its hit single “A Lot,” featuring J. Cole, won the Grammy for best rap song that year.
