The song also started off the year as the first #1 at urban radio and was also the most played song of 2019 at urban.

Lil Baby is capping off the year with another #1 song at urban with “Baby” by himself and DaBaby. Earlier this year Baby’s solo song “Close Friends” also hit yet another #1, showing his clear dominance throughout 2019.

Papi Wilo X Boy Wonder CF lanzan el sencillo y video musical del tema “Tu Despedida”, poderosa cancion que habla de la vida, la muerte, los falsos amigos y la importancia de tener paz en el corazón y perdonar a los que te han hecho mal, ya que la vida es muy corta y hay que orar por las almas perdidas y que las almas perdidas se arrepientan y pidan perdón antes de que sea muy tarde.


Directed by Vaughan Arnell (George Michael, One Direction), the video sees Blunt strapped up with cameras running through London. Steeped in the beauty of simplicity, the video highlights the notion that we’re all travelling in certain directions, not always certain of our destination, and sometimes, even if we are, some might never get there. Featuring a catchy acoustic guitar and Blunt’s pitch perfect vocal, “The Truth” is an upbeat and heart-warming love song. When asked if the song was a direct love note to his wife, Blunt said, “Well, I’ve avoided using those words – but, yeah, I’m lucky to be here! It’s been a long, lonely journey searching for someone, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else than right here, with her.”
