With a pair of chart-topping Migos albums and a handful of Top Ten singles as a solo artist, Quavo seized the moment and became the first Migos member to release an official album with Quavo Huncho. Following 2017's collaboration with Travis Scott, Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho, Quavo Huncho finds the titular rapper roaming familiar pop-friendly trap territory with a crew of high-profile guests such as Drake, Saweetie, and Lil Baby, with some delivering more effective use of their time than others. Layered with sufficiently ominous trap beats provided by Cubeatz, Murda Beatz, Buddah Bless, and more, there aren't many sonic surprises here.
It's his debut collection of tracks branching off from the Migos, but Quavo necessarily grabs a handful of heavyweight features to help him carry the weight of his first solo album, Quavo Huncho. The Quality Control artist manages to beef up his project with healthy features from 21 Savage, Drake, Travis Scott, Kid Cudi, Davido and of course, labelmates Lil Baby, Offset and Takeoff. Impressively, Quavo Huncho also represents with a powerhouse of female features from Normani, Cardi B, Saweetie and Madonna. Yes, Madonna is on a Quavo track, and ….
This was always inevitable. The laws of physics and commerce and Spotify guaranteed, from the moment they vaulted into stardom, that the Migos would try to conquer the world as solo artists. From the jump, Quavo was thumbed as the breakout star. His voice was (and is) lighter and more slippery than Offset's or Takeoff's, and he seemed better-suited for the rap/R&B hybrid songs that have dominated the charts for much of this decade.
