“Apple Music has been a big partner in my growth as an artist these last few years,” said Lil Durk in a released statement. “I appreciate them giving me a platform to share my live show to the world. I’m ready to turn up with the fans in L.A. later this month.”
The digital series had its inaugural performance on May 20, 2022, with global pop artist and ex-One Direction frontman Harry Styles spearheading the campaign.
“No matter how much time and effort an artist may spend crafting music in the studio, it’s on the stage where they get to show their work,” Apple previously said when describing their new series. “Apple Music Live is a new recurring series designed to do just that: give the biggest stars in music the biggest possible platform to flaunt how they connect with audiences and how their songs translate to live performance.”
Lil Durk released his latest album, 7220, with the album becoming one of the biggest Hip-Hop releases of the year in terms of first-week streams. After the impact of his forthcoming Apple Music Live performance, Durkio’s dominance is sure to continue into the later half of the year.
