Makonnen promises iLoveMakonnen2 in October

I also love Makonnen, so earlier in August when he ambiguously tweeted that “10/2015” might hold ILoveMakonnen2,

I found myself adding it to my birthday wish list (my birthday conveniently also being in October). At the Billboard Hot 100 Festival this past Sunday, Makonnen confirmed that the album will indeed be dropped this October.

For those of you unfamiliar with Makonnen, you may at some point in the last year have heard his song Tuesday:

He released Tuesday on the iLoveMakonnen mix-tape last July. In the following December, Drake remixed Tuesday and signed Makonnen to OVO Sound, shooting him into the spotlight. Despite this, he doesn’t seem to have thanked him much, saying on Twitter that “Drake is mad corny.” Regardless of his comments, both should be happy if iLoveMakonnen2 is as good as the first.
