Buddy is warming fans up for his next studio album.
On Tuesday, the Compton rapper released his Kent Jamz-assisted track "Hollyhood," which serves as the lead single off his sophomore effort. The track arrives months after Buddy dropped the deluxe version of Harlan & Alondra—his 2018 debut album—as well as a string of collaborations with the likes of Bas, Smokepurpp, EarthGang, J. Cole, and BJ the Chicago Kid.
Buddy recently told Hypebeast he began working on his second album over the summer, and has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the game.

"I'm just trying to finish, you know? Last week it was me, Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo making music. I ain't kick it with him since, you know—it's been a minute," he revealed. "I hung out with him and Snoop Dogg, Kid Cudi. But we were working together. I was working with the Neptunes. That shit's everybody's dream. That's probably the most exciting thing that happened to me."
Buddy's sophomore album is expected to drop in spring 2020. You can watch Buddy's COLORS performance of "Hollyhood" below, and stream the track now on all major platforms.
