Lil Baby Shares More Info About Lengthy New Album ‘It’s Only Me’

Posted by

Lil Baby has finally turned in his upcoming album It’s Only Me to his label, and he’s shared some crucial details about what fans can expect.

On Monday (October 3), the 4PF boss took to his Twitter to announce his album had been submitted while letting fans know it will have 23 tracks along with a total of seven guest features.

According to Baby, he doesn’t plan on unleashing a deluxe version this time, either, bucking a trend that has become commonplace among many artists in the streaming era.

“Finally Turned My Album In,” Lil Baby wrote. “23 songs 7 Features No Deluxe.”

This is the latest significant piece of news Lil Baby has given fans since going into full rollout mode last month when he dropped a single titled “Detox” and formally announced the new album’s title, It’s Only Me.

In the same announcement, he also shared the release date and the official cover art, which shows the rapper smoking weed and sitting on a rock surrounded by a few goats. In the clouds above, Baby’s face can be seen taking shape.

“‘It’s Only Me ’10-14-22 I Kno Its Been Along Time Coming But I’m Coming Harder And Harder …… #worththewait,” Baby wrote on IG.

It’s Only Me follows Lil Baby’s 2020 4x-platinum blockbuster My Turn, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 moving 97,000 album-equivalent units, becoming his first chart-topping album. The album topped the chart for five weeks and in March became the longest-running album to stay inside the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

My Turn featured guest appearances from Gunna, 42 Dugg, Future, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Wayne, Moneybagg Yo, Young Thug, and Rylo Rodriguez with production from Tay Keith, Hit-Boy, Murda Beatz, Wheezy and more.

Thanks to his new single “Detox” debuting at No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100, Lil Baby saw his total number of entries on the chart jump to 109, equalling Elvis Presley’s tally.

Lil Baby and Elvis both sit in ninth place on the list of artists with the most Hot 100 hits, behind the likes of Drake (278), Lil Wayne (183), Future (152), Kanye West (141) and Nicki Minaj (124). In addition to his Hot 100 record, Lil Baby also earned his first-ever diamond single when his Gunna collaboration “Drip Too Hard” surpassed 10,000,000 units.
