  • DJ Booth

    BLAME IT ON BABY is an album that says, “I’m on the way,” not, “I have arrived.”

  • All Music

    DaBaby still has a grip on the special magic that put him on most listener's radars, but with the middle-of-the-road material of Blame It on Baby, we can hear that grip loosening.

    Blame It On Baby is an occasionally fascinating, often frustrating no man’s land of a record that could either be the start of a new chapter or the beginning of the end. Like everything else in his career, we’ll likely know sooner than later.

    I’m not going to lie, I thought DaBaby would be one of those rappers that would be irrelevant in a year. After listening to Blame It On Baby, I am convinced that he is a rapper that is willing to do whatever it takes to prove to the world that he truly has talent; you can’t underestimate people like that.

    While these new tracks will undoubtedly dominate the charts, it's a shame that what we got was another ambiguous collection of radio singles, with DaBaby rarely stepping outside his comfort zone.

    If there were ever a meme that could correctly describe how this album sounds, it would be the two men dressed as Spider-Man pointing at each other in utter confusion (and disappointment). I am a fan of DaBaby and only want him to win, but I think it’s time he sits back and re-shakes the formula that he’s using because it’s past its sell-by date.

    As he experiments with new sounds, the North Carolina rapper’s prolific streak is his greatest enemy on his third project in a little over a year.

  • Uproxx

    However, it’s not so much DaBaby’s flow that needs to change; it’s the fact that after three albums, we still know very little about who he is outside of his typical, punch-first-ask-questions-later bravado.

  • The Post

    The flows sound the same, the beats sound the same, every song disappoints the same. DaBaby provides nothing new or even mildly impressive with his new album, making it one of the plainest and most unmemorable hip-hop albums of the past few years.

  • Hit Up Ange

    DaBaby has delivered a thorough project, it had a good taste of his ignorant and confident styles while mixing it up with his more unprotected side and showing more of himself and his story to his audience.

  • EW

    Similarly, the album’s title track is a virtuosic showcase that finds DaBaby right at home, ramming through a litany of drumless beat switches, emphasizing the natural percussiveness of his voice. He speeds up and slows down to match the production, but otherwise doesn’t deviate from the formula he’s now perfected. The best part is that he doesn’t need to.

    Even at its best, Blame It on Baby sounds like something DaBaby's done before and better.

    BLAME IT ON BABY feels as manufactured as it gets, with very few brief moments of fun or artistry.

    DaBaby, formally known as Jonathan Kirk, kept his hot streak rolling in 2020 with the release of his new 13-track album, “BLAME IT ON BABY.”

  • The Communicator

    While there are several bangers off the album and a song or two are bound to top the charts, there isn’t anything too impressive from the North Carolinian.

  • The Rich Report

    As long as DaBaby sticks to his traditional, one-dimensional flow, he will be able to create a hit every now and then, but he is shown all his cards as an artist, and his relevancy is really waning now unless he really can surprise in his future releases with something different.

  • E News Planet

    DaBaby’s detractors might not be defeated with ‘Blame It On Baby’, but this latest project succeeds by further propelling the rapper’s soaring momentum even while in lockdown. Once this pandemic ends, expect DaBaby to be one of the first out of the blocks.

  • H Wing

    At best, BLAME IT ON BABY reaffirms DaBaby has the charisma of a rap star. He has the voice, confidence, and style to be a giant among men. But does he have the songwriting? BLAME IT ON BABY, on first listen, makes you wonder. There are some high highs, like “NASTY,” “UP,” and “TALK ABOUT IT,” but, as an album, BLAME IT ON BABY isn’t undeniable.

  • Hip Hop Hopscotch

    DaBaby's new album isn't very good. He switched up his style slightly on this with his melodies and introducing some new flows - but it didn't pay off and is his worst album to date.

  • Music Xclusives

    The album was a fun, energetic listen with DaBaby at least trying to break away from the path that his fans expected. Though it had mixed results, this attempt by DaBaby to be diverse and eclectic only speaks to his longevity in music.

    These songs are as average as can be. Had they not been rushed out to take advantage of the current moment, it’s possible that they could have been worked into something more memorable.

    DaBaby quarantine album was awaited, but turned out very mediocre, maybe the author is not really in the mood.

    Overall, the project was okay. I really didn’t expect much, just to be the same Dababy music we are used to. He even tried switching his sound, which I do not see working for him.

  • Pitchfork

    The North Carolina rapper’s third album in 13 months is stacked with the same regurgitated phrases and flows from earlier projects. This time, they’re starting to go stale.

    “Blame It on Baby” is a solid album by Dababy. His flows and his witty lyrics were some of the highlights for the album.

    Blame It On Baby is not terrible, but it falls flat on the ears. On this album, The Charlotte artist responded to his critics by attempting to change his flow.

  • The CSPN

    Considerably a step down from his previous 2019 albums, KIRK and Baby On Baby, Blame It On Baby lacks the hard-hitting tracks that worked so well last time. However, change is exactly what this artist needs to maintain the audiences’ interest and propel his ongoing momentum.

    Blame It On Baby shows that DaBaby is approaching the point where less may just be more.

  • The Musical Hype

    All in all, DaBaby serves up his fair share of entertaining and enjoyable moments. Is this an album that’s incredibly profound or life changing by any means? No, but I don’t even get the impression that that’s Kirk’s intent. It’s definitely flawed and imperfect, but I’d argue there’s enough here at least to give a temporary buzz, while the song “Nasty” is an absolutely filthy gem.

  • The Eastern Echo

    While DaBaby didn’t show the potential growth that fans hoped for, tons of people, myself included, will still be listening to the new LP regardless. As of now, I still like his last two projects more but am hoping for new and improved music to come in the future.

  • Ben's Beat

    There are a lot of completely valid criticisms about what DaBaby does, but until he puts out an album as repetitive and bloated as Migos’ Culture 2, there’s always going to be part of me that appreciates his unique niche in the rap game. Though if he doesn’t get better at doing anything else, we just might be headed that way.

    Coronavirus Sucks. Quarantine sucks. Everything about 2020 seems to suck. While we were all cooped up inside, DaBaby came to the rescue with a surprise album, Blame It On Baby. Smack dab in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, DaBaby struck when the iron was hot and hit us with his third album in only 13 months . Rocking a facemask on the cover art, the fast-moving rapper drops 13 new tracks hot off the press combining street anthems, comedy, satire, aggressive rhymes, and charismatic flows.

    Blame It on Baby is an obvious misstep in DaBaby’s otherwise flawless rise to rap stardom. This isn’t to say that he won’t be back soon with something more substantial but as it stands, this album has his least playback value.
