Per Hits Daily Double, DaBaby's Blame It On Baby is expected to generate 130,000-150,000 in total activity. 8,000-11,000 of this will likely be pure albums sales. If these predictions hold true, then Blame It On Baby will end The Weeknd's reign and replace After Hours at the summit. These projections put Blame It On Baby on par with the rapper's last album, Kirk. When released in September 2019, it opened to 154,000 in activity, becoming DaBaby's first No. 1 album. 

Blame It On Baby is supported by a star-studded cast of feature artists. The project was released on Friday and boasts appearances from FutureRoddy RicchQuavoYoungBoy Never Broke Again, and more.

Yet, the biggest collaboration comes on the record "NASTY" which features Megan Thee Stallion and Ashanti. Prior to the album's release, DaBaby posted a video to his Instagram account explaining what this track means to his younger self. 

"I got a song with Ashanti and Megan Thee Stallion," he said. "A lot of people don't know, and Ashanti ain't even know... she used to be my girlfriend. No cap. Back in, like '04, '05, swear to God."
