Just a few months after the release of his debut album, Baby Keem is getting ready to hit the road this spring for a North American tour in support of The Melodic Blue.
The 21-year-old rapper took to social media on Wednesday to announce the Melodic Blue Tour, which will kick off March 7 in Cincinnati, making stops in New York, Atlanta, New Orleans, and Chicago before wrapping at Coachella on April 22.
Tickets for the 28-date run are available here starting Friday at 10 a.m. local time.
Released back in September, The Melodic Blue features guest appearances from Keem’s cousin Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, Don Toliver, and Brent Faiyaz. The 16-track project debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 by moving 53,000 equivalent album units in its first week out, making it by far Keem’s biggest debut yet, with his previous release Die for My Bitch peaking at No. 196.
Keem has released videos for four tracks from the LP—“First Order of Business,” “Issues,” “Family Ties,” and “Durag Activity.”
In an interview with Complex in 2019, Keem spoke on the importance of an album versus a mixtape, revealing The Melodic Blue would tell more of a story.
“A cohesive body of work that tells a story. That’s an album to me,” he said. “And Die for My Bitch is going back and forth too much between heartbreak and being angry. But it’s not telling the full story yet. Not yet.”
