No foolin’: Big Sean will release a new album on Friday, April 1, the rapper announced on social media Sunday.

The project, titled “Twenty88,” is a joint venture with his frequent collaborator Jhene Aiko. The album “tells the story of the highs and lows of a relationship, with insights into conflict, memories, love, sex and more,” according to a press release detailing the release.

The album will stream exclusively on Tidal for 72 hours, according to the release. The duo will perform together Thursday on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

“Twenty88” features production by Detroit producer Key Wane, as well as Detail and Tommy Brown.

Sean and Aiko have previously teamed on the tracks “Beware,” from Sean’s “Hall of Fame” album, and “I Know,” from his “Dark Sky Paradise.” Aiko performed with Sean at Joe Louis Arena in November, and also joined him at the Red Wings’ home during a performance in June 2014.

The album is Sean’s first since his 2015 album “Dark Sky Paradise” and Aiko’s first since her 2014 release “Souled Out.”
