In December we got a new single from Dej Loaf titled “Big Ole Boss” and now she is hinting that her long-awaited album, Liberated, is ready.
The last solo body of work we received from Dej Loaf was her 2016 mixtape All Jokes Aside. Last year, she released a joint mixtape with Jacquees, F**k A Friend Zone. Though she has released at least four mixtapes and an EP since 2012, we’ve yet to get her long-awaited debut album. Last year she announced that she is working on a new project called Liberated but so far there have been no further details.
On Monday, Dej Loaf posted a preview of a new song on Instagram where she drops some hints about her upcoming album. “Express yourself it’s been building up gradually who ready for the album?” she wrote. In a recent interview with Paper magazine, she opened up about the pressure she has been feeling to deliver her best work yet.
“I think it’s been a year and a half since people have seen me,” she said. “I took that time off and I was working. You don’t know how they’re going to react. It’s definitely pressure, though. I just want to be who they saw me as, but also have them understand my growth in the music. That’s what I focused on this go-round.”
