French Montana returns with his highly anticipated fourth full-length studio album “They Got Amnesia“
The single “Handstand” with Doja Cat & Saweetie ignites an instantly twerkable refrain over slick production. The two hottest female MCs in the game tag team the beat with raunchy and raucous bars before French pulls up with a hypnotic verse of his own. Stay tuned for the official music video, directed by frequent collaborator Edgar Esteves, premiering on Monday, November 22!
French Montana says: “This album reflects my personal journey, so it’s the most special for me. God gave me another chance at life and this music healed me. I’m grateful to my collaborators and my fans for supporting me. I had to remind ‘em, ‘cause you know THEY GOT AMNESIA!”
The new album opens in the literal “ICU,” and takes listeners on a journey through redemption, detailing his story through recovery over the past several years. The record kicks into high gear with the head-nodding “How You King.” Elsewhere, “Touch The Sky” with John Legend & Rick Ross reaches the heavens with a fluttering refrain and bossed-up rhymes from Rozay. Then, there’s “Push Start,” which shines with a sizzling guest spot from Coi Leray. Serving up a sequel to his 2016 double-platinum smash “Lockjaw,” he reteams with Kodak Black for the red hot “Mopstick.”
Then, there’s “Stuck In The Jungle” with Pop Smoke & Lil Durk. French links back up with the late Pop Smoke and Lil Durk for a bold banger punctuated by a catchy lyrical crossfire. The whole project concludes with the soulful and reflective “Losing Weight.” In the end, the album delivers a message to fans to appreciate life and everything that comes along with it. As a bonus, the rollercoaster concludes with an update of his summer 2021 hit “FWMGAB (Remix)” with Moneybagg Yo
The short film visualizes the narrative of perseverance the album weaves throughout its 20 songs. The storyline was written by French Montana himself and directed by Edgar Esteves.
The album stands as his tightest and strongest project to-date, as he fully embraces his roots, showcasing a verbal dexterity and unpredictable flows that established him as a star in the first place. After lighting the culture on fire late last month with the announcement of the album, he kicked things off with the release of “I Don’t Really Care”, with much chatter surrounding the song’s instantly classic music video.
