Hitmaking producer Metro Boomin has released his second studio album, “HEROES & VILLAINS”, featuring Future, Young Thug, Travis Scott, and 21 Savage on multiple tracks. The album is expected to debut at number one on all charts. 

After almost four years, Metro Boomin has again satisfied his fans with another impressive album. His great follow-up to his 2018 debut was a bit delayed, but the results were definitely worth it. Metro has clearly sharpened his tools as a producer and continues to demonstrate how his beats can bring out the best in each and every artist featured.

Earlier this week, Metro additionally dropped a deluxe version titled “Heroes Version”, which consists entirely of instrumentals. Fans can enjoy the entire “Heroes & Villains” experience, with or without vocals. Metro’s new project has many collaborators, from Young Thug and Gunna to A$AP Rocky and The Weeknd. He’s also been reunited with artists like Future.

In an interview with “Hotnewhiphop”, Metro elaborates on his initial intentions for the albums feature list including Future.

 “That’s my brother, but we’re working on some things,” Metro said. “At first, we were going to put a couple of songs with me and him on the album, but we had taken them off because I had talked to him,” Metro added, revealing why he didn’t appear on Futures last album, “I NEVER LIKED YOU”.

“HEROES & VILLAINS” guest list includes A$AP Rocky, late take-off Migos, Gunna, Young Nudy, John Legend and more. The album was originally scheduled for November 4th, but was delayed by a month due to issues with clearing samples. Prior to its’ release, Metro teased the project on social media and shared custom-designed comic book covers to announce  featured artists. The artwork on the cover seems to be influenced by Pink Floyd’s 1975 LP “Wish You Were Here”. 

Most solo- albums released by Producers tend to sound repetitive and dated, but “HEROES & VILLAINS” showcases Metro’s futuristic production and track sequencing previously shown on his last solo- album, “NOT ALL HEROES WEAR CAPES” and collaborations like “Savage Mode II”. By highlighting the cohesive vision of the St. Louis producer showcased on this album, most people believe the future of the reigning musician is bright.
