The album will be the Californian rapper's first since his self-titled record last year.
Vince Staples has just shared his first single of the year, a collaboration with Mustard (aka DJ Mustard) called 'Magic'.
The song is also a preview of his upcoming new album entitled Ramona Park Broke My Heart.
Named after his hometown Ramona Park in Longbeach, California, the area has been a feature of Staples' music since his debut record Summertime '06 back in 2015.
According to the rapper, it will also be a project made with his 2021 self-titled album in mind (which came 2nd on the Hot Press Hip-Hop Albums of the year list).
"They were kind of created at the same time. I was in a similar state of mind. I'm still working through things and the questions that life poses," he said in a statement reported by Pitchfork. "This album will make even more sense if you heard the previous one."
On the title, he said that "it's symbolic of home, and everyone has a home. Even though it's very personal to me, everyone can relate to it. That's why I thought it would work for this chapter."
'Magic' was first previewed in a Beats by Dre commercial last week featuring tennis superstar Naomi Osaka as part of the now Apple-owned company's new "Beats Fit Pros" line.
