Lil Baby has officially started his new album rollout after teasing the arrival of his new project all summer.
On Friday (September 2), the Atlanta rap star returned with a new single called “Detox,” and he also followed up the track’s release with some concrete details regarding the follow-up to his 2020 4x-platinum blockbuster My Turn, which in March became the longest-running album to stay inside the Top 10 of Billboard‘s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
Taking to Instagram to share the album’s cover art, Baby announced his next project will drop on October 14, and that it’ll be titled It’s Only Me.
“It’s Only Me “ 10-14-22 I Kno Its Been Along Time Coming But I’m Coming Harder And Harder …… #worththewait,” Baby wrote on IG.

The cover art for It’s Only Me is painted in a similar style to the cover of My Turn. This time around, Baby is seen smoking while sat on a rock rather than on a cliff, and is surrounded by a few goats. In the clouds above, Baby’s face can be seen taking shape alongside the faces of his two sons.
The big reveal arrived moments after Baby dropped off the visual accompaniment to “Detox,” which finds the Quality Control star wearing many hats as he stars as a driven businessman, a yoga instructor and a boxer.

Overall, the highly-anticipated rollout caps off what’s been an already massive summer for the “Staying Alive” star, who just wrapped up his lengthy One Of Them Ones Tour with Chris Brown on August 27.
The very next day Lil Baby won the Best Hip-Hop award at the MTV VMA’s for his “Do We Have A Problem?” collab with Nicki Minaj.
Baby’s also made time to give his fans some new tracks along the way, and these past few months has dropped the songs “Right On,” “Frozen” and “In a Minute.” It’s unclear if any of these songs will appear on It’s Only Me.
Music aside, Lil Baby’s Amazon Prime documentary Untrapped hit was released last Friday (August 26), showcasing Baby’s explosive rise into the superstar he is today.
“If even one person is inspired to think their life can change, or be close to what they dream of, then this documentary was worth making,” the 4PF boss said of the doc in a statement. “I just want to share my story in the hope that it helps others get to their own best story.”
