Lil Baby and Kirk Franklin shocked the music world when they joined forces for a surprising collab a few weeks ago. Their “We Win” track was one of the first offerings from the Space Jam: A New Legacy soundtrack, and it even boasted production from the legendary Just Blaze. Today (July 28), the duo teams up to deliver the official music video, which sees Lil Baby delivering his verse while Kirk Franklin blesses the keys as a team of young and talented basketball stars join them:
We will be better than ever, made a promise, we can do it together/ And I ain’t breakin’ my word, I just wish that I could fly like a bird/ Get away from this earth, had to pray and pray, I felt I was cursed/ Always tell myself it could have been worse
Nеver goin’ back, I broke the rеverse, it come from my soul, no need to rehearse/ Lot of time, I was in need of work, talked to God like “I need this to work”/ Jumped the line like I needed it first
Lil Baby was on top of the world last year, kicking off his streak of success with the release of his project My Turn. Including its deluxe upgrade, that project saw 27 tracks with additional features from Gunna, 42 Dugg, Future, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Wayne, Moneybagg Yo, Young Thug, and Rylo Rodriguez. In addition to spawned high-charting singles like “We Paid,” “The Bigger Picture,” “Woah,” and “Sum 2 Prove,” My Turn also earned Lil Baby his first number-one album on the Billboard 200 thanks to 197,000 album equivalent units sold during its first week of release.
Most recently, Kirk Franklin blessed the masses with collaborative singles like “Millionaire (Good Like That)” with Tauren Wells and “Together” with For King & Country and Tori Kelly. His last solo album, Long, Live, Love, was released in 2019 and earned Franklin two Grammy awards the following year for Best Gospel Album and Best Gospel Song.
