The wait is almost over. Young M.A’s highly anticipated debut album is set to drop on September 27.
Young M.A announced HERSTORY in the Making on her Instagram page revealing its cover art, tracklisting, and official release date. The debut album via M.A Music/3D will be released on the tenth anniversary of her brother’s untimely passing due to gun violence, and she stated in a press release, “There isn’t a single day that I don’t think about my brother. He continues to motivate me; inspire me & this project will forever be dedicated to his legacy.”
M.A then goes into detail about what fans can expect on the upcoming album. “You’re gonna get the truth. You’re gonna get the cocky joints, the slick talk joints where I talk my talk, but then I’m gonna get personal. Real personal. That’s why this album is called HERSTORY in the Making because it’s about all sides of me. People will hear this album and say, ‘I had no idea she was going through all that.’ I don’t put myself out there on social media. I save it for the music, and I write it all. This is all me,” she says.
The 21-track album was produced by Zaytoven, Mike Zombie, Amadeus, NY Bangers, Kofi Black, and Tone Bird, and features Relle Bey and Max YB. It also includes recent singles “BIG,” “Bleed,” “Stubborn Ass,” “Car Confessions,” and “PettyWap.”
She also released the video for the album’s bonus track, “PettyWap 2” which was directed by Marc Diamond. The video showcases the artist at a pool party having fun while big booty bikini-clad women twerk and dance around. There is a lot of liquor being passed around and several times throughout the video, Young M.A can be seen putting her face close to the twerking women’s derrières. The track is a banger and in the four hours since it’s release has over 444 thousand views. Her previous hit “PettyWap,” currently has 69 million views on YouTube and we’re more than positive that this latest track will be just as successful.
