Lil Durk Strikes Gold With His Sophomore Album ‘The Voice’
Chicago native Lil Durk scores his second gold album in less than six months for 2020’s The Voice. The 16-track album has sold 500,000 units since its December 24th release — which came out a week after his other 2020 album, Jus Cuz Yall Waited 2, was certified gold by the RIAA.
Featuring guest appearances from 6LACK, Young Thug, and YNW Melly, The Voice was Durk’s surprise album that paid homage to his artist, late rapper King Von. Chicago-born Von, who died at 26 last month after being shot at an Atlanta nightclub, is featured on the album cover and on the track “Still Trappin.”
Durk paid tribute to Von, who was signed to Durk’s Only The Family Label, in the music video for The Voice‘s lead single, “Backdoor,” which has garnered over 31 million views since it dropped December 20.
