After scoring a No. 2 debut on the Hot 100 this week with his J. Cole-assisted single “All My Life,” Lil Durk looks to topple that feat on the Billboard 200 with the release of his new album Nearly Healed.
Today (May 26), Nearly Healed is the follow-up to Durk’s 2022 album 7220. The album reached No. 1 last year on the Billboard 200, netting 120,500 equivalent album units — marking his second chart-topper. Nearly Healed boasts an impressive guest line-up, as the Chicago staple reeled in J. Cole, Alicia Keys, Future, Kodak Black, and Billboard 200’s current reigning champ, Morgan Wallen. Wallen and Durk previously collaborated on the 2021 song “Broadway Girls,” which debuted in the top 20 of the Hot 100.
In a new Interview with DJ Akademiks Off the Record Durk reveals in a podcast that Kanye West was instrumental in the creation of his album, but he ultimately decided not to use any records. “He actually did my whole album,” Durk told Akademiks. “But I ain’t use it. He, like, tweaked it. He added vocals to some beats. He played with two records. He played a few records. He did some genius sh-t.”
Despite the cuts, Durk conveyed to Akademiks that he’d consider using the songs if he chose to go the deluxe route for Nearly Healed. “I’m trying to see if I can come back with some genius sh-t with it, man, and double my sales,” he quipped.
