Metro Boomin has had a busy schedule recently. At the end of 2022, he dropped his 2nd studio album Heroes & Villains which was stacked with great collaborators. His song "Creepin'" alongside 21 Savage and The Weeknd has been a top 5 hit for months and the album debuted at number one. He followed it up last month with his Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse soundtrack. That album was also stacked wall to wall with high-profile features. "Calling" with Swae Lee, Nav, and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie debuted at number 41 on the Hot 100 this week.

Despite the prolific streak that led him here, Metro Boomin isn't done. In a recent interview with Complex, he talked about what's next. In a move that should have fans salivating, Metro has a full album with Future in the works. “The ultimate album right now is about to be the one with me and Future,” he told the publication. “Now that Spider-Man is out and people are loving and resonating with it, my focus can go to what me and Pluto got coming out. I’m not doing anything until that gets done” he continued.

Metro Boomin's Next Project

The statement comes a few months after Metro Boomin first confirmed that they had a joint project in the works. It also comes only a few days after he treated fans to a preview of one of the album's new songs. “It’s tunnel vision on that one because I was spreading myself thin between Heroes & VillainsSpider-Man, Coachella, and still shooting videos for Heroes. But now the focus is on this album and we’ve been working.”

Metro Boomin didn't just get to do the soundtrack for Spider-Man, he actually makes a cameo in the film himself. A clip of Metro reacting to seeing his cameo made the rounds on social media last week. In an interview, he also talked about how much fun it was to make his cameo happen. What do you think about a new Metro Boomin and Future album coming soon? Let us know in the comment section below.
