After nearly four years, Metro Boomin finally blessed fans with his sophomore album, Heroes & Villains. The follow-up to his excellent 2018 debut arrived after a bit of a delay but the outcome was certainly worth it. Metro clearly sharpened his tools as a producer while continuing to show that he can bring out the best in each of his collaborators.

The producer doubled up this morning with the re-release of his new project titled, Heroes Version. Metro Boomin came through with a complete Side B to the album, consisting of solely instrumentals. Now, fans can take in the Heroes & Villains experience in its entirety, both with vocals and without.

Metro's new project has a slew of collaborators, from Young Thug and Gunna to A$AP Rocky and The Weeknd. He also reconnects with artists like Future, who he hasn't necessarily locked in with for a while.

"That’s my brother, but we’re working on some things," Metro Boomin said. "At first, we were going to put a couple of songs with me and him on the album, but we had took them off because I had talked to him," he continued, revealing why he didn't appear on I NEVER LIKED YOU.

"I was like, ‘Look, the last time anybody’s really heard a song from me and you was ‘Mask Off.’ So instead of us randomly throwing one or two songs we did on here, we got to wait and just give them a joint,'" Metro explained on Apple Music 1.

Hopefully, we end up getting new music from Metro and Future. On Friday, Metro unveiled the official video for "Superheroes" with Future.
