The new Baby Keem album arrives this Friday, September 10th.

Hours out from the arrival of his debut studio album, Baby Keem hit The Tonight Shows stage with an early preview of his latest single, “Issues.”

Perched on a mounted bike, the Compton rapper performed the propulsive, yet sedated, cut against a dimly lit backdrop of rolling hills and cliffs for his first appearance in Studio 6B. The melancholic set is the latest push in Keem’s year-long campaign for the melodic blue, which was officially announced in 2020, but only received a firm release date earlier this week. Along with the album’s release date, Keem shared a trailer for the project, offering another glimpse at the visual component for the melodic blue, which arrives this evening via pgLang and Columbia Records. The rapper also shared the project’s tracklist, revealing another Kendrick Lamar collaboration stashed in the sequence, as well as the previously-leaked link-up, “vent.”

“Issues” is the third single from the incoming album, following the Kung Fu Kenny-anchored, “Family Ties,” and the Travis Scott-assisted, “Durag Activity.”
