MGK revealed during Beats1 interview that he deleted the whole album he’d been working on for more than a year and after that he stared working again on what we now know as Hotel Diablo:
The original album that this was supposed to be, I erased that whole thing. I played it, and I got no reaction. I have a lot of honest people around me who were like, yo, this isn’t it.
The only one song that still exist from that erased album is the collaboration with Lana Del Rey, but MGK did not put that song on Hotel Diablo:
That song lyrics-wise and sound-wise, that song can come out whenever and still be relevant. If anything, that one’s always there, but everything else I scrapped.
