With the announcement that Pusha T’s forthcoming project DAYTONA will be released this Friday (May 25), the G.O.O.D. Music President had more words of encouragement and creativity behind the label’s new projects.
“Seven, you know, definitely the God number,” Pusha-T said during his listening party on Wednesday (May 23). In an era where an over-saturation of music is available to the public, Pusha believes that lengthy albums are a thing of the past. “You know G.O.O.D. Music anti everything. If everybody doing 18 tracks, we doing seven.”
Though I don’t believe it’s anti-everything, pushing out seven songs per album is a great marketing tactic, especially since every new release will synonymously follow that rule. Think about it. Seven songs is long enough for anyone to burn through in the car or for leisure; generally people will become more willing to listen because of its short length. It’s the opposite side of the spectrum from Brockhampton’s Saturation trilogy, but this will undoubtedly have the same effect.
G.O.O.D. Music is slated to release new projects from Kanye West (Love Everyone – June 1st), Teyana Taylor, Nas, and a collaborative project called Kids See Ghosts (June 8th) between the founder and Kid Cudi.
