Rapper Lil Uzi Vert drops official music video for latest single 'Futsal Shuffle 2020'
The release has fueled further speculation on social media that his album 'Eternal Atake' will also release shortly
Hip-hop star and fashion icon Lil Uzi Vert is making big strides for the year 2020. The rapper was recently confirmed as a performer at the 2020 Coachella festival and has already stoked his adoring fans into a frenzied hype over the release of his long-awaited sophomore album, 'Eternal Atake' with his latest single, 'Futsal Shuffle 2020'.
Barely a month ago, Lil Uzi Vert sparked a new dance craze on social media after premiering some funky dance steps for his latest single, saying it was called the 'Futsal Shuffle'. "The Single that I’m going with From 'Eternal Atake' is a Dance Record called FUTSAL," the rapper announced on Twitter. "THE DANCE IS CALLED THE FUTSAL SHUFFLE." It started trending on social media with thousands of people posting their own version of the dance steps, and fueled further speculation that the former XXL freshman would be dropping his latest album soon.
So when he premiered the groovy single 'Futsal Shuffle 2020' on December 13, 2019, fans were correct in thinking that the momentous album release for 'Eternal Atake' could be around the corner. The synth and bass-heavy dance track is produced by Brandon Finessin, Starboy, Mayyzo, and Loesoe, and now, Lil Uzi Vert has upped the ante by releasing the official music video for the track - check it out here:
Lil Uzi Vert first officially announced the 'Eternal Atake' album in July 2018, and even released two preview tracks from the album in April 2019, called 'That’s a Rack' and 'Sanguine Paradise'. But the album's release has been prolonged due to well-documented tussles with his record label, which has only served to further increase the anticipation for the new album.
He even teased the cover art for the new album on January 4, 2020, by posting and later deleting what many fans believed to be the album's official artwork on social media. The now-deleted image featured a solitary figure descending to Earth via a giant spaceship's tractor beam, and also showed a large crowd of people gazing at the spectacle in wonder - if the collective buzz surrounding an upcoming album release could be encapsulated in a single picture, this would be it! A little while later, Uzi deleted his all Instagram pictures and replaced them with four images of women clad in flowing purple garments and flowers, prompting further discussion about the possible themes related to his new album. We can't wait to hear it for ourselves! For now, let's dance to Lil Uzi Vert's music video in anticipation of the album dropping.
