Following its focus single, “First Class,” topping the Billboard Hot 100, Jack Harlow has released his sophomore album Come Home The Kids Miss You.
“That’s the theme of the project for me, is being from a place like Louisville, you get an opportunity to come back and you have this magic in your hands, like, look what’s going on out there, I brought back a piece for you . Check this out, look what I’m experiencing. I know you see it on the internet, but you want to see it up close? This is what it’s like,” Harlow said to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe. “Almost every song on this album, you could find me threading it back to the relationship of what I’m experiencing and the context that exists with Louisville, because that’s where everything gets grounded, that’s where my reflection comes from. I take these experiences where I’m flying through the Hollywood Hills or I’m on a private jet to Miami, really what makes that interesting is when I compound that with, ‘Yeah, but I’m from Louisville, Kentucky and I have to go back.’ That’s not the foundation, like the independent variable was Louisville, and those are just little experiences we had, but I’m Louisville, you know what I’m saying? These are just little things we drop into the bowl that are just added, so those experiences, you nailed it, man, it’s all about what it’s like to go home after experience. I go through these things, I go through months I experience stuff no one from my city is getting to experience, and I take that home and go, ‘Let me tell you about it.’”
A 15-song drop, which also has the previous single “Nail Tech,” the album features Lil Wayne, Pharrell, Justin Timberlake, and Drake throughout. The latter pops up on the track “Churchill Downs,” which was previously leaked and has the Toronto rapper “is he or isn’t he” firing off subliminals to a certain rapper he has had issues with for a while now.
He also shared a video for “First Class,” which features Brazilian pop star Anitta. Stream everything below and be sure to add the album wherever you get music.
