DJ Khaled has been on fire as of late after dropping to singles with Drake, so why not add to his list with the hottest artist of 2020, Lil Baby.
Preparing to release his 12th studio album, DJ Khalad linked up with Lil Baby Sunday afternoon (August 9). Posting various photos and videos of himself and Lil baby, Khaled praised the Atlanta native rapper.
“I worked wit a lot Great artist before and I said this last time I work wit lil baby . Lil baby is very special. Key🔑 word VERY ! @lilbaby_1 thank you. FANLUV IM WORKING ON MY BIGGEST ALBUM. It’s truly amazing ! Luv always KHALED KHALED the album this year. More history was made today!”
Khaled is coming off success from his two songs with Drake, Popstar and Greece. Both landing on the Billboard Hot 100 at Number 3 and 8 respectively. Drake would go to surpass Madonna as he collected his 39th and 40th top 10 spot of his career. Drizzy now site along at the top with that incredible feat.
Before working with Lil Baby, Khaled thanked all the fans, radio stations, DJs and program directors for their support on Popstar. Noting on his IG as Popstar entered the top 10 of Rhythmic radio at number 9 this week. The single also moved to number 12 on Urban and also entered the top 40 on Pop radio.
Lil Baby is no stranger to success on the charts, which makes for this paring with Khaled a predictable instant classic. Lil Baby used his voice and dropped the socially conscious hit “The Bigger Picture“, after the tragic killing of George Floyd. The non-album single quickly gave Baby’s second studio album My Turn an instant boost all the way back to the number one spot two weeks in a row for the month of June.
Early Sunday Afternoon Lil Baby was seen rapping along to what appears to be new music. Riding in the backseat as he recites his own lyrics, this could very well be the song that will be featured on the album Khaled Khaled.
