Dancehall heavy hitter Skillibeng will be one of the featured artists on Coi Leray’s self-titled second album, coiwhich is scheduled for release on June 23, 2023.

The Boston rapper has been preparing for the project’s release with music video shoots and teasers for fans on her social media account since she announced it on Friday. Coi Leray didn’t share the full tracklist, but she did give some details, including some of the upcoming artists who will be appearing, including rising talents Lola Brooke and Skillibeng, producer David Guetta, and artists Saucy Santana and Giggs.

According to Rolling Stone, Coi’s next album will include “Bops” and “Body”, which were released recently. On Saturday, she gave fans a preview of another new song called “Get Loud.”

Fans had mixed reviews of the sample on Twitter, with many not resenting the snippet she posted. “No it’s not, and why is this generation just remixing songs without any creativity,” one fan said. “I really appreciate his grind but this song just isn’t at all,” said another. “It’s going to be a solid rave/beach hit,” another fan said.
