Lil Durk’s highly anticipated album Almost Healed is out today (May 26). The 21-track LP arrives with features from Alicia Keys, J. Cole. Future, Kodak Black, 21 Savage, Chief Wuk, Rob49, Morgan Wallen, and the late Juice WRLD.
The album starts off with Alicia Keys telling Durk that it’s safe to express his emotions, especially after the last few years when he suffered tremendous losses. His best friend and fellow Chicago rapper King Von was killed in 2020 and his older brother DThang was killed in 2021. The LP then goes into Durk’s second single “Pelle Coat” which he dropped a visual for today.
Durk dropped his J. Cole-assisted “All My Life” last Friday (May 19), which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs chart, where it became Lil Durk’s third leader and Cole’s fourth. The song also debuted at No. 2 Billboard Hot 100 which is the second time debuting in the spot.
Durk admitted that Cole bodied him on the song, which is a rarity with his features.
“He smoked my a– on that one, for one — barely,” Smurk said when asked about his experience working with the Dreamville boss, per Complex. “That barely happens. But shout out to J. Cole, shout out to [Dr.] Luke, we made it happen.”
Leading up to the record, Durkio sat down with XXL about how his first collab with Cole came about.
“We were just trying to figure out, like, what’s the right person to put on it,” Durk said of the Dr. Luke-produced track. “‘Cause it’s one of those songs where if it’s not the right person to do the second verse… I feel like Cole can bring the energy that I’m looking for to it. So, if it wasn’t J. Cole, it’d be
[Kanye], but Ye, he tucked away somewhere.”
