Rapper Aminé Unveils Name and Cover Art for Forthcoming Debut Album ‘Good For You’

Fresh off the heels of being named as one of the members of XXL’s Freshman Class and an all-around successful 2016, rapper Amine is flying high. So high, in fact, that the artist took to Twitter to announce the summer release of his debut album. Good For You is coming to our ears very soon: in a little over a month, in fact.

The news of his forthcoming debut studio album comes a week after his hit 2016 single “Caroline” went triple platinum.

Amine celebrated the news of his impending album by unveiling its cover art on Thursday (June 22). The cover is rather simple, featuring him against a bright yellow backdrop and sitting on a blue toilet while he reads the paper with his jeans at his ankles. It is very candid, somewhat strange, very in your face – very Amine.

Since the success of “Caroline” catapulting the up and coming rapper to recognizable fame, the Portland native hasn’t stopped his momentum. He has dropped some singles along with visuals to lay groundwork for the release of his summer project Good For You. Those supporting singles include “REDMERCEDES,” “Turf,” and “Heebiejeebies” featuring singer Kehlani.

Most recently, Amine collaborated with Vevo LIFT for their “Stripped” series and did a live stripped-down rendition of his single “Turf.” He decided to sing the song in a local supermarket back in his hometown, which is what the song is about. Charlie Wilson joins him at the end for the chorus.

Good For You is set to drop July 28.
