It’s been three years since Migos dropped Culture II, and a third installment is on the way.Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, Offset, Quavo, and Takeoff reflected on the milestone while acknowledging their fans. “3 Years Ago Culture II Dropped,” wrote the trio. “We want to thank the fans and everyone on our team that helped us get to where we are today.”
Released on Jan. 26, 2018, Culture II–the follow-up to 2017’s Culture–debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and was certified 2x platinum, spawning multi-platinum hits including “Stir Fry,” “MotorSport” with Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, and “Walk It Talk It” featuring Drake.The Atlanta supergroup is now gearing up for the next chapter. “New Music OTW So Stay Tuned!” they teased.
Migos has been working on the long-awaited third installment in the Culture series. “The vibe on the album is more of Culture, and that’s all I should really share,” Quavo told GQ in July. “We feel good. We feel new and refreshed.”
But the album may not bear the Culture III title. “Ever since ‘Bad and Boujee’ went No. 1 and then we dropped Culture and Culture II, I’ve heard the word culture so much,” Offset told GQ that same year. “As artists you challenge yourself–you have to keep moving forward. So I’ve been thinking of a plan to make something as powerful or more powerful [than Culture].”
Earlier this week, Quavo shared a photo of himself in the studio with a guitar in hand. “U Gon Love These New Sounds,” he captioned it.
Last year, Migos dropped a series of singles including “Need It” with YoungBoy Never Broke Again, “Racks 2 Skinny,” and “Give No Fxk” featuring Young Thug and Travis Scott.
