Last year, DaBaby was arguably one of music's biggest Cinderella stories. The Charlotte upstart blossomed into a superstar, courtesy of his undeniable wit and explosive features. After landing his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last September with Kirk, six months later, he kept his momentum rolling by landing his second chart-topping project with Blame It on Baby this past Sunday (April 26).
"Coming out with Blame It on Baby and still having the listeners locked in and them having more patience to accept different types of music, I'm in a beautiful position," Baby humbly explains to Billboard after debuting with 124,000 equivalent album units his opening week. "It's our obligation as artists to feed them what they want."
Since Nov. 2018, Baby has earned two platinum albums with Baby on Baby and Kirk. In 2019, he had the most Hot 100 entries, surpassing the likes of Post Malone and Drake. With Blame It on Baby, the "BOP" MC's penchant for club bangers prevails, as he partners up with Roddy Ricch on "ROCKSTAR," A Boogie wit Da Hoodie on "DROP" and Future on "LIGHTSKIN S--T."
