With her debut album, Trendsetter, Coi Leray made a solid impression last year. Across 20 tracks, she connected with the likes of Nicki Minaj, NAV, G Herbo, and Lil Durk, among many more, while also showing range throughout solo efforts such as "Heartbreak Kid" and "Lonely Fans." After its first week out, the Boston baddie's numbers came in at 11.5K album equivalent units sold, which is far lower than some anticipated considering the superstar collaborators she had the pleasure of working with.
Regardless, Leray has soldiered on, continuing to share exciting new singles and serve up scantily clad-looks in the months since. After teasing fans with a trio of titles so far this year – "Players," "My Body," and "Bops," – the 26-year-old has, more recently, been hinting at the impending arrival of her sophomore project. She shared a pantsless photo dump on Instagram earlier this week while providing fans with an album update, and today (May 19), the fashionista confirmed exactly when it will arrive.
COI is Coming
Much like her debut, what appears to be the cover art shows Leray posing in a promiscuous position, hiding her bare chest with a massive chain and her hand. The few pieces of clothing she is wearing are all bright blue in colour, and her shiny black hair is styled in a blunt bob. "Introducing 'COI,' my second album. Dropping June 23," the "Anxiety" artist confirmed in her caption, causing plenty of excitement to begin buzzing among fans.
Along with the big news, she also gave the world an early preview of what she says is "one of [her] favourite songs" from the upcoming project. As Billboard notes, it's sure to be an internet hit, as it samples 1989's "Pump up the Jam" by Technotronic, following her recent trend of paying tribute to old classics.
