With his new album The Melodic Blue set to arrive on Friday, Baby Keem has made his late night debut on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with a performance of a new song entitled “Issues.”
A low-key track produced by Keem himself, “Issues” is our latest taste of what Keem is capable of. “I been duckin’ my friends, I been stuck in my ends,” he raps on the solemn number, backed by moody lighting while sitting on a bike.
The performance comes one day ahead of Baby Keem’s highly anticipated album, which is set to include the previously released tracks “Family Ties” with Kendrick Lamar and “Durag Activity” with Travis Scott. Upon announcing the imminent release of the record on social media, Keem shared both the cover art and tracklist. Fans suspect, due to some leaked snippets, that Kendrick could make multiple appearances on the album.
It’s been a huge year for Baby Keem so far, and he just made his debut in the Billboard Hot 100’s top 20 with two of his most recent appearances. The first was “Praise God” from Kanye West’s album Donda, which landed at No. 20, and the second was “Family Ties” with Kung-Fu Kenny at No. 18.
