Russ and Lil Baby's "Ugly" collaboration is dropping tonight


After one of the biggest years of his career, Lil Baby is gearing up for his next collaboration, this time with “What They Want” rapper Russ

On Wednesday, Russ revealed that Baby would be featured on his upcoming track,” Ugly,” which is produced by Grammy-winning hitmaker Boi-1da.

“”BOI-1DA x RUSS x LIL BABY,” wrote Russ on Instagram, sharing a teaser clip from the song’s music video. “THIS FRIDAY AT MIDNIGHT. y’all ready?!?!”

Combining Boi-1da’s instrumentals with Russ’ melodic flow and Baby’s humble delivery could potentially land Russ his next Billboard Hot 100 hit. The short clip follows Russ walking through a strip club, where he meets Lil Baby and his iced-out Baby chain.

This will be Russ’ first video release since last year’s colorful “Take You Back” video featuring Kehlani, which has over 16 million YouTube views. It was featured on Russ’ latest album Shake the Snow Globe, which landed at number four on the Billboard 200 Albums chart.

As for Lil Baby, the My Turn rapper has been rather quiet lately, especially on social media. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t busy working on new music. His Twitter account is still active, though it seems Baby has deactivated his Instagram account, which is no longer searchable.
