The Ivan Berrios-directed video for the hypnotic track sees Baby counting cash, surrounded by clones of himself, and performing on a platform as alligators circle him. “Heyy” is the second track we’ve heard from his third studio album It’s Only Me, which drops on Friday, Oct. 14. He gave fans their first taste of the project with “Detox,” which was accompanied by a visual that saw him boxing, doing yoga, and dealing with business.
Upon announcing It’s Only Me, the 27-year-old hitmaker revealed the cover art for the project which saw him taking all spaces on his rap Mt. Rushmore. “I Kno Its Been Along Time Coming But I’m Coming Harder and Harder,” he wrote alongside the art. “#worththewait.” His last solo full-length was 2020’s chart-topping My Turn, although he shared the Lil Durk collaborative release The Voice of the Heroes last year.
Last month, Lil Baby was honored with the Quincy Jones Humanitarian Award at Black Music Action Coalition’s second annual Music in Action Awards Gala. He was celebrated for his contributions to racial and social justice, notably when he provided 3,000 local children in Atlanta with school supplies earlier this year.
“I honestly didn’t know what a humanitarian was, but as I looked into it and started reading, I understand that I’m actually humanitarian,” Lil Baby said during his acceptance speech. “I just want to say that I appreciate everybody in here because nothing that we doing or trying to do can be done by one person. It’s gonna take all of us to stick together and stay together.”
