After signing to Interscope through a joint venture with South Coast Music Group in late 2018, DaBaby made his label debut in March with the massively successful Baby on Baby. Reaching #8 on the Billboard 200, Baby on Baby delivered the hit single “Suge”– a double-platinum track that’s racked up over 216 million streams on Spotify.

DaBaby’s new album KIRK, released on September 27 has debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 selling 145,000 album equivalents. The album solidifies the Charlotte, North Carolina rapper as one of the brightest stars of 2019.

KIRK features heavyweight collaborations with Chance the Rapper, Gucci Mane, Nicki Minaj, Migos, Lil Baby, and Moneybagg Yo with the lead single “INTRO” paying homage to his late father on an emotional track produced by DJ Kid.

One of the hardest working artists in the industry, DaBaby has also announced a North American tour featuring support from Salisbury, North Carolina native and protégé, Stunna 4 Vegas.

The album release party took place in Charlotte on Wednesday night with Spotify and Rap Caviar in NoDa. Check out some of our favorite moments.
