DaBaby’s New Album Blame It On Baby leaves Fans Pissed
It’s now officially been over a month since DaBaby’s album, Blame It On Baby, has released and fans are very disappointed.
Although the album is filled with features such as: Future, Megan The Stallion, Roddy Ricch, Quavo, and other wildly successful artists; it yet fails to live up to his previous album’s high standards.
Shortly after DaBaby dropped his project people started leaving bad feedback. See what some people say about their experience with Blame It On Baby, while taking a listen yourself.
For what it’s worth, there seems to be a kernel of truth in each scenario. While DaBaby does add singing to many of his tracks, he also relies heavily on his usual delivery when he isn’t crooning and while his producers employ plenty of interesting sounds and even beat switches, they stick closely to their signature collection of 808 drum kits and snare rolls that, while nearly omnipresent in pretty much all of hip-hop today, may not showcase as much variety for a rapper who’s releasing projects at a six-month clip. One thing is for sure, though: You can’t please everybody, even when you given them exactly what they think they want.
Blame It On Baby is out now on Interscope Records. Get it here.
I’m sure we can all agree to hope to see a more diverse album in the future. Kirk has been received by the media and his fans very well, but Blame It On Baby not so much.
Lil Baby passes Taylor Swift in Album Sales for 2020 with ‘My Turn’
Lil Baby’s My Turn album helped fuel the Atlanta native’s rise into the upper echelon of rap’s next generation of superstars and played a major role in Baby putting forth a banner 2020 campaign. On January 7, Neilsen Music/MRC Data revealed My Turn was 2020’s most popular album throughout all genres in the United States.
My Turn earned 2.63 million total album-equivalent units for the project to take the top spot over Taylor Swift’s Folklore at No. 2 (2.204 million). Baby’s sophomore album was also the most-streamed effort of the year with the collection of tracks, banking 3.93 billion streams during 2020. However, the LP has only sold about 40,000 copies in traditional album sales.
Rap was well represented across the Top 10. Behind Baby and T-Swift saw Pop Smoke’s posthumous debut Shoot For The Stars, Aim For the Moon (No. 3/2.198 million), Juice WRLD’s Legends Never Die (No. 5/1.990 million), Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding (No. 6/1.895 million), Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake (No. 7/1.860 million) and Roddy Ricch’s Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial (No. 8/1.792 million) round out the list.
The Quality Control rapper unleashed My Turn on February 28 last year. The album debuted atop the Billboard 200 with roughly 197,000 total album-equivalent units and held the No. 1 spot for five nonconsecutive weeks. My Turn reportedly raked in over $19 million during the year and became the first 2020 project to go multi-platinum.
According to Billboard, Hip-Hop/R&B was responsible for over 30 percent of all on-demand song streams in 2020, which is the largest of any genre in music.

Trey Warner sparks excitement in his fans with Meant For You
Trey Warner is an actor and musician who carries astounding melodies within himself. Meant For You, his new EP, is filled with mesmerizing tracks that are guaranteed to get stuck in your head once you start playing them. His Pop-Punk approach is what makes him so likable across all ages of listeners.
Meant For You is the leading track on his album and summarizes his sound perfectly. A mixture of radio quality sound and undiscovered talent. The chorus on the song is what simply sticks. This song is our favorite on the album.
We Found Love, Young Love is a beautiful slow dance song that reminds us a lot of the 1980’s. It is great to hear artists such as Trey Warner keep this style alive. His vocals are powerful and emotional. The lyrics are relatable and strike to the listener straight away.
Start The Fire starts off fairly calm but fills up with energy quite nicely once the chorus comes in. The guitars that kick in on the second verse are also a nice touch that compliment the rhythm of the beat. We can’t compliment the production quality enough on Trey’s side. Everything is simply said radio-ready and just wanting to get heard.
Those were only three of Trey Warner’s songs from the EP. We encourage you to take a listen to the EP Meant For You yourself, and get stunned by the vibes coming from this talented artist. There’s something about listening to Trey that makes you want to kick back and relax.

Review: I Just Want to See the Sun Again
Kyle Oashu, releases his latest album, I Just Want to See the Sun Again. The South Carolina Hip-Hop/Rap artist has created this album as part of his self-discovery journey.
When asking the young artist what the album is about, he replied: “A statement about how I want better days for myself and for the ones I love and how I’ll do anything to achieve that.”.
Starting the album off with the intro “Nimbus”, the artist brings an old school feels to the table with a memorable chord progression.
His second song “My Grandma Lives in Heaven” takes a different approach with its unique style and vocal chops in the background.
Continuing with our favorite, “Glasswinds” follows a more mellow and smooth rhythm with its beautiful piano melody.
“Erased” is one of the sadder songs the 6-track album has to offer. It digs a bit deeper into the emotional side.
Next, “Godloft / Awake” reminds us of a Kanye West style chopped beat mixed with a vocal style almost comparable with XXXTentacion at certain parts.
Kyle ends his album off with “Pretty Little Monster” meaningfully. The song touches on sensitive topics and has a reminiscing feeling.
If you would like to listen to the album yourself or follow the artist on his musical adventure, you can do so here:
I Just Want to See the Sun Again is available now on Spotify and all other major platforms. Follow Kyle Oashu on Instagram for future releases and more information.
