The self-claimed "album of the year" will arrive sometime in 2023, and the star producer spoke excitedly about its progress.

Few hip-hop producers today- or ever, for that matter- are able to reach the self-made artistic dominance of Young Metro. He may only have a few solo projects to his name, but he indelibly shaped so many projects from this era. From producing hot singles to helping behind the scenes to, most famously, his joint projects, Metro's done it all. In fact, Metro Boomin recently said that his upcoming collab album with Future will potentially be released in 2023. Of course, they already teased this before, but to hear further confirmation is always exciting, especially from these two longtime collaborators that still recently put out some of their best work.

FLAUNT magazine recently debuted a cover story with the producer on Monday (March 6), shortly after his second No. 1 album HEROES & VILLAINS. During said interview, he spoke on performing with Future for his One Big Party tour stop in Atlanta. "Oh, that was fire," he shared. "You know, Pluto, that's my brother. We’ve been at it for a long time. This whole superhero moment, it’s like the beginning of our phase two. We haven’t had a song out since 'Mask Off,' they’ve been on our heads. With this, and then the whole State Farm thing, it’s starting to slowly put people on notice: we crankin' that s**t back up too."

Later on, he said that their upcoming full-length team-up will most likely come out this year. "Definitely," he expressed, "I would bet on it. I would definitely bet on it." Previously, he called the project the "album of the year" in an Apple Music interview. "Let me tell you why," the 29-year-old went on. "[Future] actually finished most of the album at my studio in L.A. That’s my brother, but we’re working on some things. 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."

Meanwhile, the star producer recently landed some other huge wins. For example, he sold a chunk of publishing rights to his catalog for $70 million on Tuesday (March 7). With his continuing to release new music, hopefully, that means he'll have more direct control of what he decides to put out, at least for now. Usually these deals have some odd implications for artists, but for Metro, it's just him knowing what he's worth and that the best is yet to come.
