“I WANT TO GIVE A SPECIAL THANKS TO EVERY FAN THAT MADE THIS POSSIBLE. EVERY PERSON WHO EVER BELIEVED IN ME. I OVERCAME SO MANY OBSTACLES THIS YEAR. SO MANY PERSONAL STRUGGLES. SO MANY LOSSES . IT FEEL GOOD TO DROP MY FIRST ALBUM AND TELL MY STORY.”
This year has already seen him building momentum towards the full-length LP via well-received singles like “Ghetto Love Birds,” “Thieves In Atlanta” with Coi Leray, “Don’t Lie To Me,” and — most recently — “Baddest,” a Hitmaka, OG Parker, Romano, and Mike Woods-produced collaboration and sees top-level assists from 2 Chainz and Chris Brown. Today, “Baddest” gets an amazing visual that matches the song’s adults-only, dance floor-ready vibes:
“Sexy motherfucker, you the baddest one, gave you all my love, that shit been addin’ up, we should get away somewhere and run it up, you tryna fall in love, need you to bring all of your friends and let’s fuck it up, I know you ain’t been touched enough, I know you ain’t the only one, no, need you to bring all of your friends and let’s fuck it up...”
Directed by Edgar Esteves, the accompanying clip begins with a quick allusion to Bleu’s forthcoming album before we see him, Brown, and 2 Chainz eventually make their way to a lively party in the middle of the street. Given that the country is opening back up, it’s certainly the type of scene that we all can look forward to this summer.
