He’s developed a career where he’s known to collaborate with top-selling artists in hopes of creating the next No. 1 hit, but DaBaby stands alone on his latest single. On Thursday (June 17), the North Carolina rapper announced—with the help of his daughter—that he had something brewing.
“All my beautiful fans, supporters, family, we got a big surprise for y’all tonight at midnight, don’t we baby,” said the rapper in a video as he introduced his daughter. Following her confirmation, he continued, “At midnight, we got a big surprise for y’all, so y’all be ready. Matter of fact, be ready around 11:30 p.m. eastern time.”
He didn’t disappoint as he released his new single “Ball If I Want To” along with a high school-themed music video. Much like some of the rapper’s previous releases, the visual features upside-down twerking, dozens of dancers executing fire choreography, and of course, DaBaby demanding attention in the center of it all.
