Metro Boomin has given fans an update on his much-anticipated joint album with Future, which fans have been clamouring for since it was teased back in March.

The “greatest producer of our generation” took to Twitter on Friday (June 2) to answer a fan who asked when the album with the Freewishes founder was going to be released, especially now that his Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse soundtrack is out.

“So now that the soundtrack is out… when’s the album with Future,” the fans asked, to which Metro replied: “Next up,” although he didn’t give a date.

The Heroes & Villains super-producer initially teased the joint collab drop back in March, with a promise that it’d be dropping sometime in 2023.

“Definitely. I would bet on it,” he said of the chances of the joint LP making landfall in the calendar year. “I would definitely bet on it.”

The multi-platinum producer also expanded on his friendship with Pluto, with whom he reunited onstage at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena in January.

“Oh, that was fire. You know, Pluto, that’s my brother. We’ve been at it for a long time. This whole superhero moment, it’s like the beginning of our phase two,” he said. “We haven’t had a song out since ‘Mask Off,’ they’ve been on our heads. With this, and then the whole State Farm thing, it’s starting to slowly put people on notice: we crankin’ that shit back up too.”

Metro Boomin previously reunited with Future on his Heroes & Villains album, which arrived in December 2022. The Freebandz boss appeared on several songs, most notably “Superhero (Heroes & Villains)” alongside Chris Brown, ending their five-year collaborative drought.

The Atlanta duo previously teamed up for an array of hits that ruled the Billboard Hot 100 for much of the mid-2010s, including “Mask Off,” “Jumpman,” “Thought It Was a Drought,” “Karate Chop,” “Digital Dash,” “Low Life,” “Freak Hoe,” “Big Rings, “Stick Talk” and more.

Prior to the release of Heroes & VillainsMetro was noticeably absent from Future’s monster 2022 album I NEVER LIKED YOU — but with good reason.

“Let me tell you why. [Future] actually finished most of the album at my studio in LA,” he told Ebro Darden. “That’s my brother, but we’re working on some things. At first, we were going to put a couple of songs with me and him on the album, but we had took them off because I had talked to him.”

He continued: “I was like, ‘Look, the last time anybody’s really heard a song from me and you was ‘Mask Off.’ So instead of us randomly throwing one or two songs we did on here, we got to wait and just give them a joint.’”
