In an interview with Rolling Stone this summer season, the artists revealed their plans to push the report to early 2022, as they were still in “touch-up mode.”

Thankfully for followers, Silk Sonic managed to make a number of progress over the last couple of months—so much so that they determined to push up the discharge date to November.
