Lil Baby surprised fans on Friday with an unexpected release of two new singles, “Right On” and “In A Minute,” each accompanied by a music video. The songs mark the Grammy-winning rapper’s first solo releases in 2022.
In both clips, Lil Baby finds himself surrounded by the finer things in life — money, designer clothes, fancy automobiles, beautiful women, adoring fans. ‘Right On’ is set in Atlanta’s Oakland City neighborhood where the 27-year-old grew up – and Lil Baby isn’t afraid to show his hometown just how far he’s come as he parades through the residential streets in a fleet of Rolls-Royce Phantoms. Throughout the track, Lil Baby details his prowess with the ladies as he taunts his haters. “Tell the police I’m not doing anything,” he said. “I was selling those songs.”
While the “Right On” video involves several fictional scenarios, “In A Minute” selects footage from Lil Baby’s everyday life, showing the rapper traveling the world on private jets, meeting fans and hanging out with friends. This intimate look into the life of the “Drip Too Hard” hitmaker complements the more thoughtful and honest nature of the song.
After receiving eight nominations overall, Lil Baby won his first Grammy Award last week, winning Best Melodic Rap Performance for “Hurricane,” a collaboration with Kanye West and The Weeknd. The rapper is scheduled to perform at Coachella this month, followed by a handful of standalone shows and festival appearances — including Lollapalooza — throughout the summer.
