Lil Baby and Jayda
According to Lil Durk, Lil Baby is top 3 in the game right now. He was on The Full Send podcast when he named himself, Baby, and Kodak Black as the hottest artist in the game at this moment. While his music is heating up, it looks like his relationship has cooled down. Jayda Cheaves and Lil Baby have been linked together for years. They have always been off and on since we’ve known them to be together, but this might be the last straw. Last week, both were spotted posting subliminal messages on Instagram. Jayda posts, “Everything comes to an end. Never force it. Be happy.” While Lil Baby posts, “When a MF think they can play wit me.” I’m sure they will be just fine as they do share a son who just turned three years old.
Baby is Busy
It looks like 2022 is going to be another good year for Baby. He started this year off collaborating with Nicki Minaj on two songs, “Do We Have a Problem?” and “Bussin” for her upcoming album. Besides the video snippets on social media, Baby just shot a music video alongside Rob49 for their song “Vulture Island V2”. He was just named as one of the headliners for Lollapalooza 2022 and is set to perform at The McDonald’s All American Halftime Show, both slated to be in Chicago. Next week, he is set to perform in J.Cole’s Dreamville Festival in Cole’s hometown of Fayetteville, North Carolina. Following the Dreamville festival, he is scheduled to headline at LSU’s Groovin 2022 concert.
Congrats Lil Baby!
He might be working this hard because of his latest accomplishment. His 2020 debut album, “My Turn” just broke a new Billboard record. This month, “My Turn” has been in the top 10 Hip-Hop/R&B album chart for 85 weeks. No other album has stayed in the top 10 for this long. He outlasted Post Malone’s 2019 album, “Hollywood’s Bleeding”, which spent time in the top 10 for 84 weeks. “My Turn” has been on the Billboard chart for over 100 weeks, in which five songs were in the top 10 at one point.
