Oiled Oakland R&B singer Adrian Marcel wraps up his introductory Weak series with a blown-out finale called Weak After Next Reloaded. The sprawling and varied 19-song mixtape features an impressive triad of guests (Kelly Rowland, Pusha T, and Casey Veggies), glossy production by the likes of Vinylz, and a flip of Drake's "Girls Love Beyoncé"—aka, something for everyone. "Ultimately, I have always wanted my music to express every side of me, as I'm not a one-dimensional person or artist," Marcel tells FADER. "Sometimes, I like to turn up, sometimes I like to turn down and be more introspective. Therefore, this mixtape just completes the story and demonstrates who I am in this very moment. My end goal is keep growing as both an artist and person." Stream it below.
