West announced the release date on Twitter in April, along with the other G.O.O.D. Music releases. Keeping that same energy he had for the other four projects, Taylor’s album arrives with no prior singles.

On Thursday (June 21), Taylor hosted an exclusive album listening party in Los Angeles that brought out industry tastemakers and talent including her husband Iman Shumpert, Kanye West, Migos and 2 Chainz, to name a few.

Keep That Same Energy is the follow-up to Taylor’s debut album, VII, which dropped in October 2015. The album featured appearances from Chris Brown, Pusha T and Yo Gotti.

Taylor will support her new album on tour later this summer with Jeremih. The two artists will kick off their North American tour on August 3 in Tampa. The month-long tour will hit major cities including Atlanta, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Dallas, Los Angeles and Seattle, before wrapping up in Portland on September 8.

Backed by a blaring bass and background vocals from Ty Dolla $ign, the track hears the Georgia native challenging his listeners to wear the hat of someone else to see if they could survive all the troubles the other person endures.

“Switch” could mark the sign of a new album era for 6LACK. He took to social media to announce details on his untitled follow-up to 2016’s FREE 6LACK. “I think my album is done. Love, Bear,” he shared.
