16 – [Baby Keem]

I know I say this every time Baby Keem drops something, but man, it truly is Baby Keem season these days. This week Baby Keem returns to fans with the music video for “16” – his first release in 2022. Since the release of his 2021 LP The Melodic Blue, the west-coast multi-hyphenate has been keeping himself pretty busy. Between shows, music videos, and adding a Brent Faiyaz-remix to his sophomore record, Baby Keem knows how to feed his fans – and luckily 2022 is no exception. In the Jonas Lindstroem-directed visual for “16”, Baby Keem is shown in surreal scenes depicting romantic tension and the highs and lows of fame. Each scene is decorated with intricate details that take a few watches to catch, but “16” is yet another high-quality visual from our hero himself.

The question begs to be asked though: With “16” being the final song on The Melodic Blue, and Keem’s cousin Kendrick set to debut new music later this year – could we be close to a new Baby Keem rollout? I’m crossing my fingers, but I’m not holding my breath; it seems like Baby Keem’s got a lot to offer fans before moving on to his next body of work. Though I’m always game for more Baby Keem, whether it be features on Donda 2 or music videos, I’m fine with taking our time getting through content made for an album like The Melodic Blue.
