Vince Staples has returned with his first solo single since 2019. It’s called ‘Law of Averages’ and it’s the lead offering from the rapper’s upcoming self-titled album, which was produced by Kenny Beats and arrives July 9 via Blacksmith Recordings/Motown Records. Check it out below, alongside an accompanying video directed by Kid. Studio.
In a press release, Staples said the new 10-track LP “really gives much more information about me that wasn’t out there before. That’s why I went with that title. I feel like I’ve been trying to tell the same story. As you go on in life, your point of view changes. This is another take on myself that I might not have had before.”
He added: “I’m a mind more than I am an entertainer to a lot of people. I appreciate that my fanbase is willing to go on this ride with me. I’m ready to diversify what we’re doing and see how we affect the world.”
Staples recently featured on Emotional Oranges’ new track ‘Back & Forth’, from the R&B group’s eight-song project The Juicebox. His last solo single was 2019’s ‘Hell Bound (Ad 01)’, while his most recent full-length project was 2018’s FM!.
