Fredo has delievered his second studio album, Money Can't Buy Happiness.
The West London rapper's 2018 mixtape, Tables Turn, debuted at No. 5 in the UK albums chart, and his debut album—2019's Third Avenue—matched that, and he's now ready to shake up the industry once more with his sophomore LP on Since '93/Sony.
Earlier this week, Fredo released the music videos for "Money Talks" (featuring Dave) and "Back To Basics", but gave us a first taste of the album in October 2020 with the song "What Can I Say".
Money Can't Buy Happiness is an 11-track offering, featuring the late Pop Smoke, R&B singer-songwriter Summer Walker, D-Block Europe's Young Adz and UK wordsmith Dave—who also serves as executive producer.
On production, you have the likes of Arkz Beats ("Biggest Mistake"), Kyle Evans ("Spaghetti"), MDJam ("Ready"), MJ Productions ("Do You Right"), Yoz & Rico ("Burner On Deck"), Kirk Beats ("I Miss"), Dukus ("Aunt's Place") and Da Beatfreakz ("What Can I Say"), while Dave takes the rest of the tracklist.
Speaking about the new album, Fredo said in a statement: "A lot was going on in life that I was angry and confused about. I really thought that once you have money you can't not be happy inside, even if stuff's going on, but it's not like that. I felt like the project I was working on before was me but doesn't really explain me. I don't want people thinking that certain things I rap about are important or the key of life because they're not. Most things I rap about are just what I been through or reality for me and my friends."
