ILoveMakonnen Hints at OVO Sound Compilation Album


Atlanta artist ILoveMakonnen is currently prepping Drink More Water 6. Due out March 18, the 11-track mixtape has generated a fair amount of buzz with the release of three singles—“Sellin,” “Big Gucci,” and “Live For Real.” This upcoming project will continue OVO Sound’s run that kicked off earlier this year with Majid Jordan’s self-titled debut.

But while we’re still awaiting news surrounding PARTYNEXTDOOR, Roy Woods, and OB O’Brien, there’s a chance that fans will get to hear all of the label’s roster on a compilation album. “A collaboration album? I can’t say too much,” ILoveMakonnen told HuffPost Live. “It exists. We’ll just see when it comes out.”

No date was specified during the interview but the Grammy-nominated artist teased October as a potential release month. Before fall arrives, fans are expecting an album from Drake. Views From the 6 is expected to drop in April.

In other news, OVO Sound recently signed an R&B act by the name of dvsn. Their upcoming project, Sept. 5th, was announced yesterday, and is due out on April 1.
