Hip hop’s newest star, DaBaby (South Coast Music Group/Interscope Records) presents his first solo offering of 2020 with the release of his newest single, “Find My Way.” The single showcases DaBaby’s versatility as the artist shifts between his signature bass-filled flow and a raw melodic hook across the DJ Kid-produced beat. Accompanying the song is a 10-minute short, directed by Reel Goats. Starring both DaBaby and influencer, BSimone, the visual follows the pair as they attempt to secure finances for the rapper’s ailing grandmother, by any means necessary. After posing the ominous question, “Have you ever seen somebody turn into a monster for a good cause?” the film then briefly transitions to music video form. The suspenseful short showcases DaBaby’s acting skills and teases a sequel for fans who will inevitably be left wanting more.
The Charlotte, NC rapper first received recognition when the 2015 release of his debut mixtape NonFiction amassed over 10,000 streams in 48 hours. He continued to serve fans with independent projects before being propelled to mass recognition last year. His debut project, Baby on Baby, spent 55 weeks on Billboard’s Top 100; peaking at #7. The effort spawned the double-platinum single, “Suge.” His first official album, KIRK, kicked things up a notch, debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200 before launching a duly-titled North American tour featuring Stunna 4 Vegas. The album included the smash hit “BOP” which has over 204 MM views on YouTube; making it DaBaby’s biggest video thus far and his third #1 on Urban Radio. The rapper, who had the most Billboard Hot 100 entries in 2019 with 22 songs, has been recognized heavily within the industry as well. Last year, DaBaby was included on Dreamville’s Grammy-nominated album, Revenge of the Dreamers III. He scored the cover of Billboard and was named as part of the 2019 XXL Freshman Class. DaBaby continues to take the music world by storm through both his sheer talent and business savvy, as he serves as CEO of his own label, Billion Dollar Baby Ent. To date, DaBaby has exceeded 6.4 billion global streams since signing with Interscope Records.
