DaBaby and Anthony Hamilton just put out a video for their almost year-old collaboration, "BLANK." Moreover, the track appeared on Baby's 2022 album, Baby On Baby 2, which received generally disappointing reviews and marked a commercial downturn. Still, his career lives on, and many fans particularly enjoyed this collaboration. However, upon the recent release of its music video, many took to Twitter to express disappointment in this track. Of course, people pointed out not just the public outrage associated with the Charlotte rapper, but also commented on his musical output.
"If we want to move forward as a people we really have to look in the mirror and figure out what role we as as individuals had in making that Anthony Hamilton and Dababy song happen," one Twitter user wrote passionately. "I get why folks are mad at Anthony Hamilton for that DaBaby collab," another expressed. "But outside of that... that song sounds terrible." Meanwhile, other people noted the sheer surprise factor of such an unexpected collaboration and sound for both artists. "DaBaby featuring Anthony Hamilton was absolutely not on my 2023 bingo card," one tweeter shared. Well, technically 2022, but the video seems to have really drawn people to that spot on the tracklist.
DaBaby & Anthony Hamilton's Divisive "BLANK" Collab
As far as the music video itself, it depicts a lavish, dramatic, and fatal relationship and sees both artists dressing dapper. Despite the technical skill at play and the concept at its core, many just focused on the song itself. However, it's not like the song is universally panned, showing that maybe the hate train can get too exaggerated. "That DaBaby Anthony Hamilton song is actually straight," a fan remarked. "Glad to see bruh switching it up some."
Meanwhile, DaBaby continues to see success and continue his career trajectory, albeit often outside of the U.S. For example, he recently revealed that his shows in Hong Kong were almost completely sold out. While this is part of a campaign to show the media he's still got it, many took his boasting as another knock against him. Regardless, one side won't turn the other over, and he'll likely continue to see success no matter who he collaborates with or what he does... as long as his core fans stick by him.
