He started teasing the news on IG by sharing the next single, “Cross Me.” He originally blurred out the collaborator’s name, asking fans, “Can you guess who’s on the next one?” After sharing a line from the song he then revealed his big news.
“Before I was signed in 2011, I made an EP called No.5 Collaborations Project,” he wrote under the artwork. “Since then, I’ve always wanted to do another, so I started No.6 on my laptop when I was on tour last year. I’m a huge fan of all the artists I’ve collaborated with and it’s been a lot of fun to make.”
“No.6 Collaborations Project will be out everywhere on 12 July. It’s available to pre-order from midnight tonight local time and my song with @chancetherapper and @pnbrock will be out everywhere at the same time x.”
For now, we’ll have to speculate who else he’s collaborating with but his second slid in the announcement reveals the track names. Instead of showing his collaborators, he’s blurred out their names. Tracks include songs titled, “Beautiful People,” “South of the Border,” “Take Me Back to London,” and his collaboration with Justin Bieber, “I Don’t Care.”
