NewsMusic NewsVince Staples announces new self-titled album, shares ‘Law of Averages’
The rapper says his forthcoming record “really gives much more information about me that wasn’t out there before”
Vince Staples has returned, announcing a new self-titled album will arrive next month, and sharing lead single ‘Law of Averages’.
The Kenny Beats-produced record will follow Staples’ 2018 album ‘FM!’, and will be released on July 9 via Blacksmith Recordings/Motown Records.
“It really gives much more information about me that wasn’t out there before. That’s why I went with that title. I feel like I’ve been trying to tell the same story,” Staples explained in a statement.
“As you go on in life, your point of view changes. This is another take on myself that I might not have had before.”

Though ‘Law of Averages’ marks Staples’ first solo song of 2021, the rapper has collaborated with the likes of Tiana Major9, Lil Yachty and Emotional Oranges so far this year.
In addition to the newly-announced, self-titled LP, Staples is thought to be preparing the release of another full-length album titled ‘Ramona Park Broke My Heart’, along with a Netflix show bearing his name.
Back in February, Staples paid tribute to the late producer SOPHIE. The pair worked together on Staples’ acclaimed 2017 album ‘Big Fish Theory’, with SOPHIE co-writing and producing the tracks ‘Yeah Right’ and ‘Samo’.
“Sophie was different you ain’t never seen somebody in the studio smoking a cigarette in a leather bubble jacket just making beats not saying one word,” he recalled about SOPHIE.
