Perhaps she's saving a new album for the 10th anniversary instead of a half-baked song 🙃

Hmm I was under the impression that Cum Cake was a mixtape? But I know that designation means little nowadays... I'll adjust to make it a little more accurate!

Nope, he said something to that effect pretty recently, but I get the sense it'd be more on the production side and less on the writing side of things? Who knows. They're probably being purposefully obtuse/haven't really figured it out yet/are following their muses...

None of those artists are making it to the top of the Billboard chart twice though? Not sure I understand your comparison...

February 24, 2017 on Future Poised To Become First Artist To Debut #1 Albums In Consecutive Weeks
It's pretty good! Honestly it didn't grab me as much I was hoping that it would - sort of one of those things I enjoy while I'm listening to it but don't have much desire to go back to repeatedly - but it's certainly solid. The lyrics are good, very impressionistic.

Oh, it's completely meaningless! Did my utter lack of excitement not come across above? He could keep releasing a new album a week for months and they'd all shoot up to #1 and I'd be just as unimpressed. Popular artists sell no matter what.,

November 28, 2016 on Join Us At A Stereogum Christmas Show In Brooklyn
I understand the comparison, but no one asked for 9/11. Almost half the (voting) populace asked for Donald Trump. I agree that it's time to take action, but as a queer person it doesn't come as a surprise to me that half the country despises me, and I've been working. But interesting assertion that no one has died given all the police brutality we've seen this year alone...

Nah, gonna use my very small platform to encourage people to vote for the viable candidate who does not personally want me and every other marginalized person in this country to either not be here or live in fear for the rest of their lives. But thanks!
