BLK ODYSSY ANNOUNCES ALBUM & SHARES NEW SINGLE FT KIRBY

Published

on

By

Austin’s own BLK ODYSSY announces his new album, DIAMONDS & FREAKS, out June 9th via EMPIRE. Alongside the announcement, is a new single “You Gotta Man,” featuring renowned songwriter and artist in her own right Kirby on one of the climactic statements of the four-part record introducing listeners to the central themes of self-identity, fame, and carnal desire throughout DIAMONDS & FREAKS. The new single follows the two previously-released tone-setting tracks that offered early looks at the album’s direction, “ODEE” and “Honeysuckle Neckbone,” which features the P-Funk legend Bootsy Collins.

DIAMONDS & FREAKS is a concept album that tells the story of a man blinded by his own lust. Presented as an erotic novel by musician and poet Keisha Plum with narration by bassist Bootsy Collins, both of whom offer a stark contradiction to the vivid and edgy content of the songs. Composed of four distinct chapters, DIAMONDS & FREAKS is a neo-soul journal, chronicling BLK’s adjustment to finding success and his relationship with sex. Written and recorded while on tour and in the midst of a tumultuous time struggling with the health of a family member, the album sways like a moral tug-of-war between success and succumbing to various forms of addiction, and the spirit of religion, faith, family and loss that pulls him back to reality.

Check out “YOU GOTTA MAN,” pre-order DIAMONDS & FREAKS, and see below for more info on BLK ODYSSY.

After increasing excitement to a boiling point, Chicago hip-hop trailblazer and multiplatinum superstar Lil Durk unleashes his anxiously awaited eighth full-length offering and one of the year’s most anticipated albums, Almost Healed, out now. Stream Almost Healed on all DSPs HERE

Superstar icon Alicia Keys notably stars in the music video for Therapy Session/Pelle Coat, which just premiered. Watch it HERE. The visual features her in emotionally charged and thought-provoking moments alongside Lil Durk. It marks their first collaboration together. 

Tense production underlines his reflective rhymes as the accompanying visual explores his relationship with the streets and faith through a series of arresting vignettes. It instantly captivates—like everything he does.

Almost Healed pops off as his most personal, engaging, and enigmatic project to date. Laced with bold bangers and introspective anthems alike, it highlights his undeniable melodies and incisive bars at the forefront. He not only shines solo on the likes of “Never Again,” but he also distinguishes himself as the rare chameleonic force who can collaborate with country superstar Morgan Wallen on “Stand By Me” or the late Juice WRLD on “Cross The Globe.

He may be Almost Healed, but he still takes no prisoners lyrically…

Check out the full tracklisting below.

Fittingly, he set the stage for the project with the single All My Life [feat. J. Cole]. Upon arrival, it bowed at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, arriving his first Top 5! It has already reeled in over 80 million worldwide streams and over 20 million YouTube views on the accompanying music video in just under three weeks!  

In support of Almost HealedDurk launches one of the year’s most anticipated jaunts—the Sorry For The Drought Tour. He will be joined by special guests Kodak Black, NLE Choppa, and DD Osama in select cities. Produced by Live Nation, the 27-city tour kicks off on July 28 at MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheater in Tampa making stops across the U.S. in Brooklyn, Chicago, Los Angeles and more before wrapping up in Phoenix at Talking Stick Resort Amphitheatre on September 7. 

The 2023 tour run comes after his successful ‘The 7220 Tour’ which hit North America in 2022 featuring special guests Doodie Lo & Booka600. Last year, Lil Durk owned the charts with the platinum-certified 7220, which crashed the Billboard 200 as his first #1 debut on the chart and boasted “AHHH HA,” “What Happened To Virgil” [feat. Gunna], and the cross-genre smash “Broadway Girls” [feat. Morgan Wallen].

Published

By

Looking out at the world through his tightly-drawn hoodie, $NOT finds little reason to be impressed. Returning to the world of mortals with an invitation to his trippy musical universe, $NOT shares “Easter Pink” via 300 Entertainment. Over shimmering, psychedelic guitar riffs and bold, thumping bass, $NOT sermonizes about cars, killers, loneliness, Nikes, and more in his steadfast, sinister delivery: “I got hella money but it don’t mean nothing/Cause what’s happiness if my brain can’t function/My mental’s all trapped and I can’t feel nothing, I’m running.”

“Easter Pink” arrives as $NOT nears the halfway point of his 33-date “Get Busy Or Die Tour.” With support from Night Lovell, Eem Triplin, and DC The Don, the “Get Busy Or Die Tour” kicked off on May 4th in Orlando, FL, made its way up the West Coast earlier this week, and stops in NYC on June 15th before wrapping up on June 22nd in Nashville, TN. 

The new single marks $NOT’s first solo release of 2023, arriving after a banner year in 2022 that helped catapult the New York native’s catalog to over 2 billion total streams. Last February, $NOT shared his project Ethereal, with creative direction by AWGE and appearances from A$AP RockyTrippie ReddJoey Bada$$Juicy J. The AWGE-directed video for the single “Doja” ft. A$AP Rocky reached YouTube’s trending chart after the audio generated over 10 million combined streams in its first week of release. Powered by a memorable hook that caught the attention of Doja Cat herself, “Doja” premiered at #87 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming $NOT’s first Hot 100 hit as a lead artist.

With the “Get Busy Or Die Tour” fully underway, plenty of music to come, and two billion streams in the bank, keep an eye on the young rapper as he continues to evolve into an icon on his own uncompromising terms.
