On Sept. 22, Baby Keem released his newest album called “The Melodic Blue,” which contains a tracklist of 19 songs. The album includes features from artists Kendrick Lamar, Brent Fayaz, Travis Scott and Don Toliver.

Baby Keem is a rising rapper who has grabbed the attention of teens with the song “Durag Activity,” which is in the album. Currently, “The Melodic Blue” is above 70.1 million streams on all platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music and Soundcloud. My favorite song in the album is “Trademark USA” because the way that Baby Keem switches flows on that song is impressive and almost mind boggling. The song is four minutes and 30 seconds long, with no features..

My top five songs in the album are Trademark USA at number one, Family ties at two, Range brothers at three, 16 at four and Durag activity at five. Although most of these songs have features, Keem catches my attention on every single song as his verse outperforms the other artists by a mile. 

The album has gotten so popular that Baby Keem is going on tour and will be touring with 14 performances. He is making his way to Washington, D.C., on Nov. 26 for those of you interested in seeing him live.

Not only is the album amazing in terms of his music, but he also did a great job with the album cover, as it is an artsy photo of him sitting on a dock staring into a sea of nature. The cover depicts how his music makes me feel because of the peaceful and aesthetic vibe it brings to the moment.

Out of all the Baby Keem albums I have listened to, “The Melodic Blue” is by far my favorite because he does a much better job switching flows and giving off the right tone in this album compared to his others.

If you are a fan of rap music, enjoy fast tempo and great beats I would recommend giving Melodic Blue a listen as it covers all those grounds. Also there is a variety of songs that feature Kendrick Lamar, another incredibly popular rapper. If you are a fan of  Lamar, I would recommend giving it a listen. 

Overall, I would rate this album an 8.2 out of 10 because the majority of the songs are good, but there were  two or three songs that do not compare to the others. I would give it a 10 out of 10 if there were no misses in the album, but unfortunately that was not the case.  

Baby Keem is on his way to stardom, and I want all of you to witness it before it happens. It does not look like this is his last album and if you enjoy this type of music, I would definitely give more of his music a listen.
