Jack Harlow is preparing to release his sophomore album, Come Home The Kids Miss You, on Friday (May 6). Ahead of its release, the Kentucky native is attempting to build hype for the project on social media. On Monday (May 2), he teased fans by promising what sounds like some monster features.
“Strictly legends on my my album,” he tweeted. “Any guesses??” Answers flooded the post with guesses such as SZA, J. Cole, Doja Cat, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj, although he hasn’t confirmed any of them.
Strictly legends on my album.

The tweet follows an Instagram post from Harlow in which he seemingly shoots his shot at pop star Dua Lipa. Sharing a clip from what looks like a tour bus, he raps, “Dua Lipa, I’m tryna do more with her than do a feature/I check the web, they out here chewin’ me up/Fuck it.”
The track follows two previously released singles — “Nail Tech” and “First Class,” which samples the 2006 Fergie and Ludacris’ single “Glamorous.”
Jack Harlow has been on a meteoric rise to fame over the past couple of years. Last week, he shared a message from fellow Louisville native Bryson Tiller after the R&B crooner posted a tweet in support of his upcoming album.
“Get ready for my bro Jack’s new album,” Tiller wrote. “soon you’ll see why he is number 1. MAY 6th.”
Subsequently, Harlow shared his first Twitter DM exchange with Tiller from 2015. Then 17, Harlow praised Tiller on his success while attempting to connect with the hometown hero.
“just wanted to hit your DMs and say thank you for what you’re doing for the 502,” Harlow wrote at the time. “truly putting us on the map. obviously we are from the same city and have a lot of mutual friends but I can’t describe how fucking dope it is to watch.
“I’m a massive fan dude and study your every move. I just turned 17 and I’m very confident in my craft and trajectory of my career. but you’re literally a hometown hero. hope we get the chance to meet soon and I’m jus flattered to have the ability to DM you. thanks bro.”
Tiller replied, “thanks man I appreciate it. keep working. anything is possible.” And it seems he was right.
