Indonesian 88rising rapper Warren Hue has announced the release date for his upcoming album, ‘Boy Of The Year’.

Hue took to social media to confirm its release date on Friday (July 8). Per his post, the album is set to arrive on streaming platforms later this month on July 29. Further information surrounding the album including its complete tracklisting and collaborators have yet to be announced.
