Fans have awaited the release of T-Pain‘s new album, Stoicville, for quite some time now, and it looks like the reason for that is…well…it isn’t finished. Though singles like “Drankin Patna” and “Officially Yours” have been in circulation for a while, Pain appears to still be putting the finishing touches on his 5th LP, and considering the following tweet, we aren’t about to complain.
Just got out the studio with Metro, Missy and Dej. Shit bout to go down fr.

The Tallahassee native later uploaded an Instagram picture from the session–Loaf wasn’t pictured–which understandably got fans even more excited for what’s to come. It’s a great time for these guys to be hooking up, especially considering recent events. Missy Elliott‘s Pharrell-featured “WTF” shot up to #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this year, and Dej Loaf has enjoyed slow-burning success with her Big Sean collaboration, “Back Up,” which peaked at #47 on the Hot 100. Metro Boomin has utterly dominated over the last year, ranging from his work with Future and Kanye West to popular collabs with Young Thug, Tinashe and Travi$ Scott. Meanwhile, T-Pain has spent the last few months showing off his range in both singing and rapping, making Stoicville one of the most highly anticipated albums of his career. It’ll definitely be interesting to hear the results of these sessions.
