Less than a month after splitting the bill with Drake on “Staying Alive,” an early August single from last week’s blockbuster DJ Khaled LP God Did, Lil Baby has returned with a new solo cut called “Detox.” The track comes with a video co-directed by the Atlanta rapper himself, with help from Ivan Berrios.
The new song finds Lil Baby flowing consistently for two-and-a-half minutes, delivering a money-over-fame message atop a choir-sampling Nick Papz trap beat. in the video, he tapes up in a boxing ring and hits the heavy bags before the camera transports him to far-flung settings, from a busy sales office to a yoga class. Watch it below.
“Detox” arrives as Lil Baby enters the final third of a busy 2022. In addition to the Khaled/Drake cut, he’s collaborated on over a dozen other singles, including notable joint tracks with Nicki Minaj, Ed Sheeran, and Nav with Travis Scott. He’s also released a string of consistently strong solo songs such as “Right On,” “In a Minute,” and “Frozen.”
