THE PLUG CALLS ON THE BIGGEST UK AND US RAP NAMES FOR NEW ALBUM ‘PLUG TALK 2’
After spending five weeks in the UK Official Top 40 Album Chart with his debut album Plug Talk, which birthed ground-breaking hit tracks such as UK Top 20 single ‘How It Is’ featuring Roddy Ricch, Chip, and Yxng Bane, ‘Broken Homes’ with Nafe Smallz, M Huncho, and Gunna, as well as ‘Rich’ featuring D-Block Europe and Offset, while garnering over 300 million global streams, Amsterdam-based British creative entrepreneur and cultural connector JACK ‘THE PLUG’ EDJOURIAN is excited to unveil his sophomore album aptly titled PLUG TALK 2. The 12-track opus arrives on October 20 as the follow-up to his Plug Talk debut album, which Complex UK hailed as one of 2019’s best rap albums.

Featuring Swae Lee, Berner, Tink, G Herbo, and Fivio Foreign from the US, and Nines, Tion Wayne, Stefflon Don, M1llionz, NSG, M24, and Aitch from the UK, as well as Cuban/Puerto Rican sensation Mariah Angeliq, French rap star Lacrim, Spanish rapper Morad, and popular Brazilian artist DaChoyce, Plug Talk 2 sees The Plug crafting some of the best and most unexpected transatlantic rap collaborations of 2023, as he links Swae Lee and Stefflon Don together on ‘Run Through’, while bringing Nines and Berner together for ‘Throw It On My Tab’, delivering a rap-R&B posse cut with ‘Let Me Hold Your Body’ featuring Tink, Ivorian Doll, and Nadia Rose, collaborating with M1llionz and G Herbo on ‘Father Figure’, and linking up with Tion Wayne and J.I The Prince of N.Y on ‘Pengtressha’.
The soundscapes on Plug Talk 2 are equally as ambitious as the guest artists on the project, with The Plug tapping up some of the scenes heavy hitters to co-produce the album, including Grammy Award-winning producer Diego Ave (Megan Thee Stallion, Future, Post Malone), chart-topping UK producer Lekaa Beats, who has also worked with the likes of Central Cee, J Hus, and Sneakbo, award-winning DJ, producer and engineer DJ Fricktion (Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean, Wu-Tang Clan), multi-platinum selling producer Mally Mall (Teyana Taylor, XXXTentacion, Trippie Redd), and Di$, whose production credits include Ty Dolla $ign, Latto, and MadeinTYO. Together, they have provided captivating musical landscapes to soundtrack what are the year’s biggest international rap collaborations.
“I wanted to continue the mission of the first ‘Plug Talk’ album, proving that UK talent is more than a match for our US based cousins. This time around though, the album is not only a bunch of US and UK collaborations, but I have reached out to further talent from Spain, France, and Latin America as well. This album is much more diverse in its music, and I am very happy with the results, which run from ‘YKI’ with Mariah Angeliq (heavily featured in the new Netflix series ‘Neon’) to chart toppers Stefflon Don and Swae Lee on ‘Run Through’, as well as UK rap heavyweights Tion Wayne, Nines, Aitch and many more besides.”The Plug
