Previous story (Oct. 24):
SAINt JHN has had a pretty big 2020, thanks to his worldwide hit ‘Roses‘ which has encouraged him to keep going.
A couple of weeks ago, the rapper-singer from Brooklyn announced his upcoming album called While the World Was Burning. Today, he took to social media to reveal the guest features that we can expect on the project. The list is pretty impressive — Kanye West, Lil Uzi Vert, DaBaby, Future, 6LACK, Kehlani, A Boogie wit da Hoodie and JID.

“Thank you to all the people that contributed their art,” he said in the note accompanying the list, also adding a message to the haters. Check it out above.
Last Friday, he dropped his new single and music video ‘Gorgeous’ — watch it below. He also shared his thoughts on the album on Apple Music in an interview last week, saying: “To be honest, I had no intention on making this collection. I had no intention on making this record. In 2020, when the world went up in flames, I took note, I paused, I internalized things, and I let my knees rest for the first time. I’ve been on the road for three years. It was the first time I got a chance to take stock of things. I’ve been moving at warp speed for a considerable amount of time before people were even watching.”
