It’s only on rare occasions that Playboi Carti updates his social media, and when he does it usually means he’s about to drop some new music. So far this year, the rapper has only shared one song, the Lil Uzi Vert collaboration “@ Meh.” But he returned on Monday to share that the news that his recently announced album Whole Lotta Red has been submitted to its parent company for release.
Returning to Instagram Monday, the rapper shared a handful of photos with the caption: “Album.TuRneD iN.” But that wasn’t all. Carti also hopped on an Instagram Live session to tease a snippet of his new music.

Though Carti said his album has been handed to the powers-that-be, he has yet to offer much in the form of a concrete release date. But given Lil Uzi’s reputation for dropping entire projects out of the blue, fans are keeping a close eye on Carti’s social media for any updates.
Check out a snippet of Playboi Carti’s upcoming music above.
Lil Uzi Vert is a Warner Music artist. Uproxx is an independent subsidiary of Warner Music Group.
