Earlier this month, Baby Keem blessed the masses with his debut album The Melodic Blue, which contains 16 tracks and additional features from Travis Scott, Don Toliver, and Kendrick Lamar. Today (Sept. 22), the Las Vegas talent decided to up the ante by adding on two previously released singles, “hooligan” and “no sense,” to the overall release. In addition, the standout cut “lost souls” now sees a new verse from Maryland’s own Brent Faiyaz, who flexes his current status effortlessly on the Keem, Jahaan Sweet, and Scott Bridgeway-produced offering:

“Sixteen missed calls, sorry, I was busy, but I missed you, you see me ballin’ and my bitch ball, all my niggas ballin’ like I’m Rich Paul, skrrt off in the Audi, I’ma lift up, all you bitches do pilates when you rich, dawg, so if she can’t pop a squat, then that’s a rip-off, keep a CDG, y’all niggas ripped off…”

The Melodic Blue has received both critical and commercial success since its release, landing Keem within the top five of the Billboard 200 thanks to 53,000 album equivalent units sold during its first week out. Visuals for “first order of business,” “issues,” “family ties,” and “durag activity” have also made landfall for fans to enjoy. Meanwhile, Faiyaz’s own career has continued to skyrocket since last year’s well-received Fuck the World project, which spawned the tracks “Fuck the World (Summer in London),” ““Rehab (Winter in Paris),” and “Clouded” — all three have subsequently earned Faiyaz a Gold plaque each. Since then, he’s liberated top tier cuts like “Dead Man Walking,” “Gravity” with DJ Dahi and Tyler, The Creator, and “Wasting Time,” the last of which featured Drake and has since landed the Sonder star within the top 50 of the Billboard Hot 200. Currently, he’s said to be working on his sophomore LP Make It Out Alive.

Check out Keem and Faiyaz’s collaboration — and the updated version of The Melodic Blue — for yourself.
