Big Sean and Jhene Aiko’s follow-up to 2016’s TWENTY88 is finally coming, according to Big Sean.
During an AMA session on Reddit Wednesday (September 16), a fan wondered if a sequel to TWENTY88 was going to happen. the Detroit 2 rapper confirmed the sequel to he and Aiko’s collaborative effort is happening.
“It’s in the works,” Big Sean told the fan.
The duo made an appearance together on Detroit 2‘s “Time In” as well as “Body Language” with Ty Dolla $ign.
Back in 2016, Big Sean told fans the follow-up would arrive in 2017 but it never materialized. However, he and Aiko have collaborated since then including “None Of Your Concern” from Aiko’s Chilombo release.
Sean’s been celebrating his third No. 1 album as Detroit 2 topped the charts. Recently, he and Lil Wayne’s “Don Life” was tapped as the theme for the 2020 NBA Finals commercials.
“Just found out Don Life feat. My Bro @LilTunechi the official song for the NBA Finals,” Sean wrote on Twitter Friday (September 18). “Love to king of Pop MJ, this sample go crazy!!! #D2”
