Today is the big day, RL Grime‘s highly anticipated sophomore album, NOVA, has arrived!

After receiving a string of singles leading up to its release, the trap icon’s 15-track body of work can now be enjoyed in full. Fueled by a handful of solo productions as well as features from Ty Dolla $ign & TK Kraviz, Joji & Chief Keef, 24hrs, Freya Ridings, and Jeremy Zucker, NOVA is quite the follow up to his extremely successful debut. While no one likes to wait for anything these days, it’s safe to day that this bad boy was well worth it.

RL discusses the personal growth that led to NOVA‘s evolved sound below:

“I made my first album, VOID, in my bedroom, mostly isolated, and without any real pressure. I think that’s an experience that many artists share on their first project. The lack of any expectation really allows you to exist in your own world.

When I started NOVA, it was from a different place. I had become overwhelmed by my own thoughts of what I should be, and what the project should be. I wanted to push myself forward, but still to exist in the world that I had established on that first album. I wanted to keep the power and purpose that I presented in VOID, but open up my process to new sounds, and collaborators, and lyrics. I felt like I had more to say, and more opportunity to say it, but that sometimes is debilitating.

I was also working from a place of hyper awareness which came with real anxiety and even dread. However, through the process, I began to open up. I made so many songs for this project, and through that was able to whittle away at what the identity and direction of NOVA would be. I’m proud of what I achieved here. I introduced the roots of the project, the power and scale of VOID, to something bright and open and almost ethereal. If VOID sounds like it comes from deep under the surface of the ocean, then NOVA comes from somewhere far away in the universe, soaring through space.”
