Kevin Gates' debut album may not have any features.

Kevin Gates is about to drop his debut album, Islah, later this month, and today the Baton Rouge rapper has shared the official tracklist for the project. Among the 15 tracks on the LP are singles "Really Really," "2 Phones," and "Kno One".

The most surprising takeaway from the tracklist is the lack of features. It's possible that the guest appearances are simply yet to be announced, but the image Gates shared on his Instagram does look a whole lot like the back cover of the album, so he could easily be doing the whole thing solo.

Gates explained the inspiration for the title in a press release. “ISLAH means to reform, to improve, to make better, and I believe that’s what my first daughter did to me. So I named my first album after my first daughter; because it improved me, it made me better.” 

Check out the tracklist below. Were you hoping for some features, or does this format fit Gates best?

  1. NOT THE ONLY ONE
  2. REALLY REALLY
  3. 2 PHONES
  4. PRIDE
  5. LA FAMILIA
  6. TIME FOR THAT
  7. THOUGHT I HEARD (BREAD WINNERS’ ANTHEM)
  8. HARD FOR
  9. ASK FOR MORE
  10. ONE THING
  11. THE TRUTH
  12. KNO ONE
  13. TOLD ME
  14. AIN’T TOO HARD
  15. I LOVE IT

My first album Islah will be here January 29th - link in bio
