BREAKOUT RAPPER TO EMBARK ON ‘KIRK’ TOUR NEXT MONTH
South Coast Music Group and Interscope Records is thrilled to announce that DaBaby’s new album KIRK has debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 selling 145,000 album equivalents. Released on September 27, KIRK cements the North Carolina rapper’s status as one of the brightest and most exciting stars of 2019.
In addition to dominating the Billboard 200, KIRK dominated the Apple Music chart upon release. Featuring some of the biggest names in hip-hop — including Chance the Rapper, Gucci Mane, Nicki Minaj, Migos, Lil Baby, and Moneybagg Yo, among others — the album has also earned widespread critical acclaim. To that end, Rolling Stone hailed DaBaby as “one of the year’s most compelling breakout stars,” while Complex noted that “KIRK will be praised for its depth, its emotional explorations, and DaBaby refining his voice.”
The follow-up to DaBaby’s recent album Baby On Baby — a Billboard 200 top ten hit featuring the double-platinum single “Suge” — KIRK includes such tracks as the poignant lead single “Intro.” With powerful production from DJ Kid, “Intro” offers a deeply personal account of how DaBaby’s father passed away just as his son’s career started to take off.
Next month, DaBaby will embark on a North American tour featuring support from Stunna 4 Vegas — a fast-rising rapper signed to DaBaby’s own label, Billion Dollar Baby. Kicking off on November 16 in Minneapolis, the ‘KIRK’ tour will wrap up on December 21 in Dallas. See below for full list of tour dates.
