Lil Durk shows a softer side as he pays tribute to his lady
It’s always refreshing when the rappers committed to the street life take time away from their macho bars to pay tribute to a loved one. Not that it doesn’t happen often, but it serves as a reminder that these men have hearts too. Englewood, Chicago rapper Lil Durk has never shied away from emotional music with softer melodies and decided to salute his girlfriend India Royale on new single “India Part II” days before he releases his third studio album Signed To The Streets 3.
The follow-up to “India,” a song that quickly became a very popular part of Durk’s catalog, Part II goes further into the 26-year-old’s relationship with his lady. We travel through their evolution from infatuation to happiness, ultimately resulting in the birth of their daughter Willow. He released an Instagram montage documenting special moments of their relationship as well.
It’s been a year of hard work and patience for Alamo/Interscope artist. Understanding fans were anxiously awaiting the release of his full album, he put out mixtape Just Cause Y’all Waited to hold them over. He’s additionally released a slew of singles, including “Rockstar” featuring Lil Skies, “Spin The Block” with Future, “Downfall” guest starring Young Dolph and Lil Baby, and was joined on “Home Body” by Gunna and TK Kravitz who were pivotal in making it a slow-growing hit on the radio and through streaming services.
Signed To The Streets 3 is jam-packed with additional heavy hitters in music today, namely Ty Dolla $ign, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Kodak Black, and Kevin Gates. Its release this upcoming Friday has been highly anticipated and with what we’ve heard so far, in addition to what’s to come, this album could surprise a lot of people.
