With another a stellar year on his resume, the Chicago superstar not only doubled down on his immaculate run in 2021, but came with a vengeance on his new 18-track offering, 7220 (Reloaded).
Adding just one more track to the 7220 (Reloaded) deluxe, “Computer Murders” came out of the crossfire of Durk’s recent tiff with NBA YoungBoy. The album earned 120,500 album equivalent units in its first week — garnering the 7220 rapper his first solo No. 1 Billboard 200 debut of his career. Eventually claiming RIAA Gold honors a month after its release, 7220 is his first solo No. 1 album, and his second No. 1 record following The Voice Of The Heroes in July 2021.
Originally released on March 11, Durk shared the record’s lead single “AHHH HA” in February — further leading in the album by dropping “Golden Child” and their respective music videos. The album contains features from Future, Gunna, Summer Walker and country star Morgan Wallen, as Durk asserts that his superstar qualities are hard to come by in today’s industry landscape.
Durk took to Twitter this week to say that the “trolls” slowed things down, but his deluxe was coming so he could “get pissed off real fast.” The Reloaded version of 7220 also follows Durkio’s recent friendship and cameo opportunity with Smurkio (or the viral social media star famed to be Lil Durk’s doppelgänger). Smurk was even casted as the lead to Durk’s “Blocklist” video, as the pair’s physical comparisons are truly convincing.
Durk first teased 7220 late last year with a blurred tracklist written on a whiteboard. Along with the photo, Durk simply stated “Anthems and no skips,” as the Chicago all-star not only replicated the success he saw in 2021, but lifted his star power to new heights in the process.
