Metro Boomin has returned with his anxiously awaited blockbuster new album, Heroes & Villains, out now via Boominati Worldwide/Republic Records.

To celebrate the arrival of the record, he has also shared the music video for the new single “Superhero (Heroes & Villains),” which features Future and Chris Brown. It continues what has become one of hip-hop’s most storied collaborations between these two titans.

On the track, a horn loop pipes up over a menacing beat as Future’s instantly recognizable flow emits shockwaves through the production. The accompanying visual embodies these trippy trap vibes. Following a tense diamond heist, it spirals out into a series of otherworldly vignettes, ranging from surfing through the sky to breaking dimensional walls.

Assembling an Avengers-level guest list, the album also notably also boasts the likes of John Legend, Don Toliver, Travis Scott, 21 Savage, Young Nudy, Young Thug, Mustafa, A$AP Rocky, Gunna, and the late Takeoff.

It notably serves as his first solo LP in four years and the follow-up to his 2018 full-length debut, Not All Heroes Wear Capes. The latter bowed at No.1 on the Billboard 200, picked up a platinum certification, and housed the triple-platinum “Space Cadet” featuring Gunna, platinum “No Complaints” featuring Drake and Offset, platinum “Don’t Come Out The House” featuring 21 Savage, triple-platinum “10 Freaky Girls” featuring 21 Savage, and the platinum “Overdue” featuring Travis Scott, among others.

The excitement around the album started earlier this week with a short film, created by Gibson Hazard, featuring an elite lineup of stars including Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman, Academy Award-nominated actor LaKeith Stanfield, Young Thug, and Gunna.
