Canadian rapper Shad has been busy over the last few years. The Juno Award-winning artist took over as the host of Q on CBC for a year after the dismissal of Jian Gomeshi in 2015.
More recently, he served as the host for the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning series Hip-Hop Evolution, which is currently streaming on Netflix. Now, it appears he’s ready to focus on his first love again — music.
On Monday (July 9), Shad shared the cover art to his upcoming album, Get It Got It Good. In the caption, he wrote, “Yes y’all, new album done … first track coming out on Thurs.”
Shad followed up with an Instagram video preview of the lead single on Tuesday (July 10).
One of Shad’s latest releases as Shad the rapper was 2013’s Flying Colours. In 2016, he released a ’90s-esque soft-pop album Adult Contempt under his alter-ego Your Boy Tony Braxton.
Three months ago, he dropped a verse on a 2018 version of the classic Saukrates song “Father Time” alongside Pharoahe Monch. There is currently no set release date for Get it Got It Good.
