Wiz Khalifa Announces New Single ‘Work Hard’ + Album Release Date
After dropping a hot mixtape ‘Taylor Allerdice,’ Wiz Khalifa is set to premiere his new single ‘Work Hard’ on 96.1 KISS on April 23. The song was produced by Stargate and Benny Blanco, the same team who bought us the infectious anthem ‘Black and Yellow.’
In addition, the newly-engaged rapper’s album ‘O.N.I.F.C.’ is tentatively due on Aug. 28, but that may change at any time. As we previously reported, ‘O.N.I.F.C.’ is an acronym for ‘Only N—a in First Class.’ For those who are sensitive about the N-word, there is a cleaner version of the LP called ‘One Night in First Class.’
Wizzy says the title represents his newfound life as a young, black and rich artist. Despite living a glamorous lifestyle, the rapper has also witnessed some mortifying experiences of racism, especially on first-class airplane flights.
“It looks crazy to them when I walk up to them and show them my ticket or I’m going in priority seating, They’re like ‘You’re sure?'” he explains. “It’s a good feeling and then it’s like a bad feeling because it’s like, ‘Damn, why do you feel like that about me.'”
