Lil Durk is coming off hot off of the release of his latest album, Almost Healed. The highly-anticipated 21-song effort boasted many features, from Billboard darlings like J. Cole and the late Juice WRLD to up-and-coming rappers like Rob49. In addition to features from Alicia Keys, 21 Savage, and Kodak Black, Durk locked in for another record with country star Morgan Wallen. The two previously locked in for 2021’s “Broadway Girls” but it’s pretty evident that their bond has gotten stronger over the years.
The collaborators dive into the world of trap country. With production from Dr. Luke, who also produced “All My Life,” the two artists serve up a bubbly anthem with “Stand By Me” intended for TikTok and Billboard success. Wallen delivers a monstrous hook on the song while Durk dives deep into heartbreak and trust issues. With both artists on the record, "Stand By Me" looks like it'll be one of those songs that dominated Spotify and Apple Music all summer. However, shortly after releasing the collab, the two artists celebrated with a fishing trip.
Lil Durk & Morgan Wallen Go Fishing
Lil Durk and Morgan Wallen hit the ‘Gram to share some highlights from their recent attempt at fishing. However, it doesn’t seem like Durk might head back out to the waters any time soon. “Family is family can’t nothing change that p.s. I’m done with fish,” he wrote. Meanwhile, Wallen gave Durk credit for his skills. “Durk done pulled up and taught me how to fish,” he wrote in one post as he posted alongside the rapper. In another, he posed with a catch for a selfie while plugging their recent collaboration.
Although it’s too early to say whether “Broadway Girls” will hit the top of the charts, it seems like Lil Durk will find major success on the Billboard charts next week. The rapper’s projected to move 150,000 units in his first week. However, those numbers unfortunately won’t help him secure the #1 spot. With the release of Taylor Swift’s Midnight (Til Dawn Edition), Lil Durk is on pace to debut at #2 on the Billboard 200. Still an impressive feat regardless but perhaps, he’ll end up at the top of the charts if a deluxe drops in the future.
