Moneybagg Yo Teases a Possible Country Album After ‘Unexpected’ Success of Morgan Wallen Collab

Is Moneybagg Yo set to release a country album? It seems so, according to the artist’s interview with Billboard on the BET Awards carpet on Sunday (June 30).

Speaking with Billboard‘s Carl Lamarre, the “Said Sum” rapper first discussed his hit collaboration with Morgan Wallen, “Whiskey Whiskey,” which debuted at No. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Offering up his feelings on the song’s success, Moneybagg Yo said, “It feels good and it’s kind of going how we kind of planned it, where he was really pressuring me on it and I was just like, ‘Ehh,’ but then, you know because it’s always something new for you and unexpected … it’s going crazy right now.”

Asked if the success of “Whiskey Whiskey” is making him think of leaning more into the country space, Moneybagg Yo told Billboard, “After these next two albums I’m fixing to drop before the summer is over, I think after that, going into the winter or something, I think I’m going to do a country album, a country EP or something.”

Given that Usher was honored with the lifetime achievement award at the BET Awards, Moneybagg Yo also noted that his favorite Usher album is the 2004 project Confessions, which included the massive hits “Burn,” “Yeah!” and “My Boo.” Usher was feted with an all-star tribute that included Childish Gambino, Latto, Keke Palmer, Teyana Taylor and Victoria Monét.

“Whiskey Whiskey” is from Moneybagg Yo’s album Speak Now, which was released June 14. The project also features collaborations with Rob49, Chris Brown, Lil Durk, YTB Fatt, and Kevo Muney.
