ICYMI, Careless Mixtape dropped at midnight today via Spotify and iTunes. The album/mixtape, which is under James Reid's music label Careless Music Manila (CMM), is a collaboration among seven artists: James, onscreen and real-life girlfriend Nadine Lustre, Curtismith, Sofia Romualdez, Astrokidd, Massiah, and Kingwaw.
The first album under CMM was James' Palm Dreams (which was released July 2017) and the artists collaborated and began working on Careless Mixtape in April this year. According to James, the tracks range from hip-hop to pop and R&B.
Yesterday, October 11, they began posting countdowns on Instagram, as well as album art for the mixtape!

Careless Mixtape has 15 original tracks, divided into "Side A" and "Side B." Even the track's titles are intriguing! There's "Extra Rice," "Balenciaga," and "POB," to name a few. Here's what people think about the track "Summer":
It's out in the Philippines, New Zealand, Australia, and Indonesia—practically all over the world!
