At 45 minutes, Come Home the Kids Miss You is Harlow’s first full-length release in two years, and has guest appearances from Pharrell on Movie Star, Lil Wayne on Poison and Justin Timberlake on Parent Trap.
The 15 song album has been released across all streaming sites and includes the lead single Nail Tech and Churchill Downs – the Drake collab track that was leaked in April.
There’s even one song called Dua Lipa – which is already causing waves amongst fans and music magazines, who see it as the rapper equivalent of sliding into someone’s DMs.
“Sorry, Jack Harlow. It’s time for you to go to horny jail,” tweeted Rolling Stone.

The album release comes after months of promotion – including a Rolling Stone cover – which then ramped up in April when Harlow released the track First Class.
The track went straight to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, garnering over 50 million on-demand streams in its first week. Over the last week, Harlow has continued to tease the release of the album across his social media.

On his first album, 2020 ‘s Thats What They All Say, Harlow worked with Big Sean, Adam Levine, EST Gee, Chris Brown and Lil Baby, and now the rapper has gone from strength to strength scoring similarly major collaborations for his latest release.
“Strictly legends on my album,” tweeted Harlow. “Any guesses???”

Speaking to Billboard in December, Harlow said that the album would be “a boost of energy for people” as he spoke about his journey to stardom: “My star is rising, and I’m kind of documenting that process and showing you where I want to take it next. I’m stepping into being a star comfortably. I want to entertain.”
Kentucky-born Harlow’s first major breakthrough was in 2020, with the track Whats Poppin, which reached second place in the US Billboard Hot 100 and earned him a 2021 Grammy nomination. His debut studio album, Thats What They All Say, then peaked at number five on the US Billboard 200, cementing Harlow’s position as a major new addition to America’s rap scene.
On Tuesday iconic producer Timbaland said, “I can’t wait until the world hear this body of work. It’s such a work of art.” Producers on the album include Grammy-winner Angel Lopez and Grammy-nominated Rogét Chahayed.
This week Harlow has also been making waves across the internet since he told YouTube star Emma Chamberlain that he loved her at the Met Ball.
