In February 2017, just weeks before the start of his first headlining tour, ​Saba ​was struck by tragedy. His cousin and best friend Walter Long Jr., who performed as John Walt, was fatally stabbed coming off a CTA train in Chicago. With a heavy heart, as documented in a feature story by ​NPR​, Saba delivered emotional performances on tours spanning North America and Europe in support of his critically-acclaimed 2016 release Bucket List Project, ​which ​Rolling Stone named one of the Best Rap Albums of the year. Proclaiming Long’s birthday, Nov. 25th, John Walt Day, Saba concluded the year with a sold-out hometown concert where all proceeds went to the ​John Walt Foundation​, which he launched earlier in the year alongside Long’s mother to generate funds for local youth with interest in the arts.

Taking a three-month hiatus from social media following John Walt Day, fans questioned Saba’s whereabouts and mental health. Centering his focus on creating new music while working alongside producers ​Daoud ​and ​daedaePIVOT ​at home in Chicago and at a rented bed-and-breakfast in Oakland, CA, Saba honed in on social anxiety and relationships with family and God as the linchpins of his new album, ​CARE FOR ME​. In the weeks leading up to the April 5 release of the album, Saba shared video singles ​“BUSY”​ and ​“LIFE”​, which have respectively been featured in top tier playlists including ​Apple Music’s The A-List​ and ​Spotify’s Most Necessary​. ​CARE FOR ME ​has earned high critical praise, including being named Best New Music by Pitchfork​. Saba is currently spanning North America on his ​CARE FOR ME TOUR​ in support of the album’s release.
