Schoolboy Q Previews New Album ‘Blue Lips’ With Two Songs — But Only for 24 Hours

The rapper shared “Back in Love” with Devin Malik and “Blueslides” from his first record in nearly five years, which is set for release on March 1

For 24 hours only, Schoolboy Q is offering a glimpse into the world of Blue Lips, his first studio album in nearly five years, set for release on March 1. The rapper, who announced the album with a trailer featuring its apparent track list, has yet to share any official singles from the project. But just for today, listeners can tap into “Blueslides” and “Back in Love,” a collaboration with Devin Malik.

The two songs have been uploaded to YouTube with fully developed visuals. In the clip for “Blueslides,” Schoolboy Q raps in solitude while images flash across the screen depicting intricate art installations and scene-setting footage. “Blueslides” has been interpreted as a tribute to the late rapper Mac Miller, who released the album Blue Slide Park in 2011.

Similar to the album announcement preview, the “Blueslides” video concludes with an overlay of a definition, this time for “Blue Slides,” while the other was for “Blue Lips.” The definition slides appear once again in the video for “Back in Love.” But in that clip, Schoolboy Q is no longer on his own. He delivers the song in front of a man holding up a poster board that reads the album’s title. Interspersed throughout is home video footage of a group of young boys.

Blue Lips will mark the first album release from Schoolboy Q since CrasH Talk, which came out in 2019, and his sixth with Top Dog Entertainment. The rapper has long been a standout artist on the label’s roster alongside the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, SZA, Isaiah Rashad, SiR, and Doechii.
