Propelled by the electronic "Imanbek Remix," SAINt JHN broke into the top 10 of the Hot 100 for the first time this past July with his single "Roses." The interest of several major hip-hop talents was clearly piqued.
Ahead of his third album, titled 'While the World Was Burning,' the 34-year-old Brooklyn and Guayana native revealed an impressive lineup of guests including Kanye West, Lil Uzi Vert, Kehlani, Future, JID, DaBaby, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and 6LACK.
"I had no intention on making this collection," a statement reads. "Thank you to all the people that contributed their art. Kanye West, Lil Uzi Vert, JID, DaBaby, A Boogie, Future 6LACK, Kehlani."
With all this star power on his side, he was feeling positive enough to even thank those who turned him down: "And thank you to all the people that said no! The struggle is part of the process! We made this 'While The World Was Burning.'"
Fans were especially excited about the prospects of a SAINt JHN collab with 6LACK and Lil Uzi. Previously, he and Uzi dropped an unofficial track together called "High School Reunion." JHN also teased a few photos from a studio session with Kanye West, who was taking a break for a haircut.
Away from the studio, SAINt JHN has turned into a capable boxer, at times giving his 652k Instagram followers an inside look at his training.
The latest single for 'WTWWB' is "Gorgeous," which received a shadowy video treatment making for some serious Halloween vibes. Peep below.
