Louisville rapper Jack Harlow will release his third studio album on very short notice this Friday (April 28). Titled Jackman after his given name, the album is his follow-up to Come Home the Kids Miss You, which was released last year. It featured the singles “Nail Tech” and “First Class,” both of which went platinum, with the latter earning Harlow his first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
When asked, a rep for Harlow said there is no further information available about the album, including collaborators or guest stars.
Next month, Harlow will make his acting debut in a rebooted version of the 1992 film White Men Can’t Jump, with the rapper playing the role originated by Woody Harrelson. The film will be streamed on Hulu beginning on May 19.
Additionally, Harlow is set to be honored next week with a “Hometown Heroes” banner in Louisville. Previous recipients include boxer/activist Muhammad Ali, actress Jennifer Lawrence, baseball player Pee Wee Reese, and Kentucky Fried Chicken founder Colonel Harlan Sanders.
In 2021, Harlow was the subject of our January cover story. Last year, he made his second appearance on Saturday Night Live, pulling double duty as the show’s host and musical guest.
