To commemorate the formal release on May 13, he shared a visible on Instagram: A gradual pan of the singer-rapper lying horizontal in front of a brown backdrop with practically nothing on but Vans, chunky silver chokers and his tattoos. The only issue that held him concealed was a funfetti birthday cake with lit candles.

It was a cheeky but on-brand name move from the South L.A. indigenous, whose new music in excess of the years has been as fluid and playful as his individual design and style: rings on every finger, cropped neon hair, on-issue manicures and pastel fits.

Very last summertime, Duckwrth dropped his hottest album, “SuperGood” — a quintessentially West Coast report that seems like how it feels: a breezy travel down the 110 freeway on a sunny working day with no website traffic. The fantastic extremely-chill escape for a year of shutdowns. Duckwrth’s most current is shaping up to be the soundtrack to what we hope is an fully distinctive summertime vibe.
