As fans continue to wait for Blueface to release his much-delayed debut studio album, Find The Beat, the Los Angeles-bred rapper unceremoniously dropped a surprise for his fans on Friday (Feb. 7). 

  1. Blueface first announced the album, which he declared would be the “album of the year,” would be out in October 2019 and then December of that same year. Unfortunately, it still hasn’t materialized. 


  2. For the meantime, he’s been biding his time for the right moment, dropping a steady string of singles instead. Giving fans something to hold them over for a little longer, he popped out of the blue with the release of his latest single, “Obama,” which hit streaming platforms on Friday (Feb. 7). “It’s up there,” the 22-year-old announced on his Instagram page along with a photo of the song up on Apple Music. 

    Charlotte’s breakout rap sensation DaBaby assists the track as well. Blueface previously teased their first-ever collaboration when he unveiled the tracklist for Find The Beat last fall, along with features from the likes of hip-hop’s latest line-up of hitters, including Lil Baby, Stunna 4 Vegas, and YBN Nahmir. DaBaby has also steadied strung on his singles release run for 2020, recently dropping the new “Shut Up” track one day before Blueface dropped their joint record. 

  3. Barely clocking in over two minutes, Blueface and DaBaby’s vibes mesh well as the two play off of one anothers cadences with entendre after entendre in their Oval Office imaginations.

    I'm pullin' strings in Balenciaga, Pull up like Trump and they duck like Donald, Presidential on me just like Obama,” Blueface raps in the chorus. The “Suge” rapper storms in on the second half, throwing a quick “F**k Trump.”

    Blueface and DaBaby’s link up “Obama” is a special occasion for fans considering Blueface’s new rhyming structure on the track compared to his unorthodox, off-beat rapping style.
