Kojey Radical has revealed the details of his debut album, Reason to Smile. It’s set for release on March 4 via Asylum/Atlantic. The LP features guest appearances from Tiana Major9, Masego, Shaé Universe, Cashh, Kelis, Lex Amor, Knucks, Shakka, Wretch 32, Ego Ella May, Rex Life Raj, as well as his own mother.
“This is the first time I’ve done it to the scale and ambition of what I speak,” Kojey said of the new album in a statement. “Previously it’s been ‘I’m warming, I’m warming, I’m warming up.’ But I’m warm now—put me in the game.”
“The whole time I was making this album it felt like there was a lot to be happy about in my life and everyone could see it but me,” he added on social media. “A lot of this album was spent trying to remind myself of all the reasons I had to smile. Going back to what and who inspired me.”
