Baby Keem's debut album 'The Melodic Blue' arrived back in September, and the music is aging wonderfully with his catchy melodies and exciting beats.
The 21-year-old wants to keep extending its impact, so he delivered a new music video for the pop-leaning track "16," which doubles as the 16th and final song on the album itself.
Keem reflects on a deep relationship with a woman that's slowly falling apart right in front of him. "Won't you think about you and I? / Just grab my hand and look me in the eye / But this ain't something you should decide / This ain't something you should decide," he sings on the chorus.
Directed by Jonas Lindstroem, the intimate (and at times sci-fi) visuals enhance the themes of love, trust and heartbreak.
Furthering his genre-bending status, Keem also graces the energetic 'Donda 2' track "We Did It Kid" alongside Ye and the Migos. He touches on relationship issues on this one, too – "Had a argument the other night / I ain't even get to 'pologize" – though his tone is more reassuring.
Recall that Keem appeared on the OG 'Donda' with Travis Scott.
Keem's cousin and close creative partner Kendrick Lamar is turning heads as well after briefly changing his Spotify profile picture to the below image.
Of course, some fans allowed themselves to wonder whether this move could be a hint toward new music. (K.Dot then switched his Spotify photo again to just the color black.)
Beyond Isaiah Rashad, it's been a minute since anyone on the TDE roster shared a new album. (Reminder: Baby Keem is a part of Kendrick's rising pgLang imprint.)
ScHoolboy Q (from TDE) seems to be using his time to perfect his golf swing instead. "[Golf] fixed my attitude in life. It fixed a lot of things about me in life," he said in an interview with the PGA. "Life is a golf game. Some good shots, some bad shots."
