Big Sean and Metro Boomin teamed up with 21 Savage for a banger in “Pull Up N Wreck” last week and have followed that up with the announcement that the two will be releasing a joint album, which according to a recent tweet by Boomin will drop Thursday, December 7.

In an interview with Billboard, the producer and Big Sean unveiled plans for a collaborative LP. They touched on their shared hard work ethic and how a history of making hits together will be the formula for success. The LP will be called Double or Nothing.

Big Sean on the project’s goal

It’s about what you’re bringing to the table: how we’re going to progress humanity, how we’re going to give people something to work out to, to live to, to upgrade to.

Big Sean on the hard work behind the project

I really challenged myself to get it out,. That takes a lot of focus and energy in the moment — [and] that’s something I think is going to improve all my music going forward.

Big Sean on his chemistry with Metro Boomin

That’s one of the things me and Metro are like-minded on. Maybe it has something to do with us being from the Midwest. We have that goal of wanting to succeed not just for ourselves, but for everybody who’s listening.

There was no mention in the interview when the LP would release, however, Big Sean took to Twitter to announce that he’s “not done with 2017 yet,” which means fans could be treated to a release before the year ends. Now, Metro Boomin has revealed that the album will be released Thursday, December 7.
