Fans will have to wait a bit longer for Fivio Foreign’s debut album.
After delivering stellar verses alongside Kanye West and teasing singles with Quavo and others, the New York drill rapper took to Instagram on Saturday (March 12) to give a firm release date for B.I.B.L.E..
“My album gon’ be pushed back. I pushed it back one more time,” he told fans. “This is the last time though, for sure. It was March 25, now it’s April 8. It ain’t really a reason or anything, I just wanted to make that shit perfect. I want it to be the perfect album. That shit is going to be viral. Stay tuned, that shit gon’ be viral. April 8.”

Fivio began working on B.I.B.L.E. last fall, not long after his “Off The Grid” verse from Donda became one of the standouts from the album.
The rapport between Ye and Fivio continued, most recently on “City of Gods” featuring Alicia Keys. The track was allegedly set to feature JAY-Z for a reunion of The Throne but due to Ye’s patience, fans never got a Hov verse.
During a recent interview for Complex Brackets with Brian “B. Dot” Miller, Fivio explained how the reunion didn’t come to fruition.
“I had the skeleton of it, I had the beat and Ye was like, ‘Yo, this shit is so fire. We going to get Hov on it and we going to go crazy.’ He’s like, ‘Yo, I’m going to get Alicia Keys to sing it,’” he said. “But [Ye] wanted it out so fast. He’s like, ‘Yo, I’m a just do a verse,’” he added. “So he did the verse, got Alicia Keys on it, she ate that shit up, easy. She different.”
