Tyler, the Creator’s new album, Igor, dropped last week (17 May) along with slowthai’s debut Nothing Great About Britain.

While fans have been speculating over the cameos, guest verses and samples of Igor – as it turns out, former Crack Magazine cover star slowthai has provided the background vocals to the album’s ninth track, What’s Good. The song marks the first collaboration between the two rappers.

Solange has also contributed to the LP, appearing on the third track I Think. The album also sees Tyler reunite with Kanye on Puppet, Playboi Carti on Earfquake, and Santigold on New Magic Wang. Philly rapper Lil Uzi Vert has a songwriting credit, and as confirmed by Tyler, contributed to the vocals for Igor’s Theme. 

Tyler announced a surprise London show last weekend (18 May). However, after crowds formed at Copeland Park and Bussey Building, police were forced to shut down the event due to it being “too rowdy”.
