Four years into a blossoming career propelled by his now quadruple-platinum hit single “Caroline”—Amine is back tonight with the release of his sophomore album Limbo.
The Portland spoke with Highsnobiety to explain the meaning behind the title.
There are two meanings behind it. I feel like I grew up thinking that once I achieved one level, the next level would be easier to achieve. But as I’ve grown, I’ve come to realize that with every level that I achieve, every level gets harder, just like the game of limbo. It just doesn’t seem to change for me, and it’s honestly made me feel like I’m completely in limbo. I thought the older I get, the wiser I’d get. But I’m figuring it out.
At 14 tracks long, Limbo features guest appearances from Young Thug, J.I.D, Charlie Wilson, Slowthai, Vince Staples, Summer Walker and Injury Reserve.
