The album was teased numerous times late 2017, with the album title then being "Midnight Zone". Belly also shared in studio images of himself working alongside Jay-Z, which speculated the two working on a song together. Following the release of Maintain, Belly was attacked by security guards at the Coachella event, during The Weeknd's headlining set.[2] Belly responded with a number of tweets; "20 of you pussies couldn’t take me off my feet" [3] and "no negative bullshit can steal my joy.. I performed the best show of my life, on 4/20 at Coachella ‼️I really came from nothing, and I’m still here.. it’s gotta mean something."[4] The album was officially announced on social media on September 2, 2018, with a new album title and an official release date, where he stated the following; "With everything going on, I can’t sit by and say nothing. I decided to speak my truths. my album is now called || IMMIGRANT || out on October 12 || xotwod || RN" [5]
