ILOVEMAKONNEN’s hit single “Tuesday” helped the Atlanta native rise through the Hip Hop ranks last year. The song was rewarded with a nomination at the 57th annual Grammys.

Although he didn’t win, MAKONNEN still showed up to the award show. On the red carpet, he spoke to MTV about his “whirlwind”2014 and his plans for the new year, which include his forthcoming album.

“It should be out in June or July-ish, but i’m going on a tour starting in April,” he says. “I’m working on that right now.”

ILOVEMAKONNEN also reveals that he’s collaborating with “a lot of different artists” on the project.

Diplo, Skrillex, Snoop Dogg, Drake, of course, Rihanna,” he says. “I love Rihanna.”
