DaBaby partnered with producer D.A. Got That Dope on a new track, “Ball If I Want To,” released on Friday along with a self-directed music video.

In his directorial debut, the rapper leads a posse of cheerleaders on the basketball court and takes over a high school library with a squad of spirited dancers. Between a giant, diaper-clad baby mascot, a food fight in the cafeteria and intense twerking on a Twister mat, the rowdy visual pays homage to DaBaby’s adolescence.

“Ball If I Want To” is the rapper’s second new single of the year, following “Masterpiece,” which debuted in January. Additionally, DaBaby has featured on a slew of tracks, including Yo Gotti‘s “Drop,” DJ Khaled‘s “I Did It” and Polo G‘s “Party Lyfe.”

DaBaby is nominated for seven awards at the upcoming 2021 BET Awards, tying with Megan Thee Stallion for the highest number of selections at this year’s ceremony, scheduled to take place on June 27.

“We are back and excited to bring culture’s biggest night, the 2021 BET Awards, safely back to Los Angeles to celebrate this year’s incredible roster of nominees,” Connie Orlando, BET’s Head of Specials, Music Programming and Music Strategy, said last month along with the nominations announcement. “We broke ground as one of the first official award shows to move forward during the global pandemic and we are ready to take our pioneer status to the next level with the return of an audience to celebrate the best and brightest creative minds in the entertainment industry.”

DaBaby is nominated for Best Male Hip-Hop Artist, Album of the Year for Blame It On Baby, Viewers Choice Award and Best Collaboration on a number of singles, including “Rockstar” with Roddy Ricch, “What’s Poppin (Remix)” with Jack Harlow, Tory Lanez and Lil Wayne, “Cry Baby” with Megan Thee Stallion and “For The Night” with Pop Smoke and Lil Baby.

Elsewhere in music, Logic has returned from retirement with a new single, “Intro.”
