Recently, Symere Woods, a.k.a, Lil Uzi Vert, released his long-awaited album “Eternal Atake.” Lil Uzi has teased many snippets throughout the last two years since his last album release, “Luv is Rage 2.”  

Lil Uzi’s “Eternal Atake” was predominantly powered by its streaming numbers of 278,000 units, which accounted for 400 million on-demand streams. It’s the largest streaming week for an album since 2018, when Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter V” racked up 433 million streams, and the fourth-largest week ever. Lil Uzi is killing the Billboard Hot 100 with 18 songs on the chart. 

“The album was very good for the wait,” said junior Lamar Garcia. “You need to listen to it a couple times to actually like it.”

Lil Uzi soon treated his fans with “Eternal Atake’s” deluxe album called “Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World 2,”  a week after the first release. In Lil Uzi’s deluxe album, he had 14 new songs added onto the original album.

Lil Uzi desires to release as much music in 2020, as he did in 2016. In 2016, he released three full albums: “Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World,” ”The Perfect LUV Tape,” and a collaboration album with Gucci Mane called ”1017 vs. The World.”    

“Lil Uzi Vert’s album is solid,” said sophomore Elijah Johnson “The original is better than the deluxe in my opinion. However, everyone else likes the deluxe better.”

Uzi fans have waited two years for this album but there were issues that Lil Uzi had to solve, before releasing the album. 

There were many reasons why the album took so long, from having issues with his label to making sure he was comfortable  releasing it, according to Pitchfork.com. Lil Uzi released Eternal Atake on March 6. Now everybody has time to listen to the album while his label sets up his tour, so he can perform. From the summer to fall seems like an ideal time to perform since everyone is looking forward to spending their summer going on vacation, partying and going to concerts. 

For now, go stream Eternal Atake and the deluxe! If Lil Uzi is releasing as much music as he did in 2016, you better keep a fire extinguisher around because he is going to release some fire music.
