Behind the Video: Tyga f/ Justin Bieber – ‘Wait for a Minute’

Tyga and Justin Bieber

Tyga is freezing time with Justin Bieber in the Matrix-inspired video for their collaboration “Wait for a Minute.” MTV News caught up with the Young Money rapper on set of the green-screen clip in Long Beach, Calif. this week.

The Maejor Ali-produced song was originally recorded for Bieber, but will now serve as the first single off Tyga’s upcoming album The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty.

“He’s in this transition period,” said Tyga of his collaborator. “I felt like when me and Chris [Brown] did ‘Deuces,’ it was like a moment. I feel like this would be a big moment for both of us with this song.”

He explained the concept behind the special effects visuals. “It’s real Matrix. We got some of the guys that do CGI for some of the big movies,” said Tyga. “We’re freezing time and switching different worlds trying to get away from certain things—the negative that comes with the lifestyle.”

Tyga

Tyga is out for blood in the frightening video for “Throw It Up,” which he debuted on Halloween night via Revolt TV. The Last Kings rapper plays a vampire and haunts the club, where he sinks his fangs into his female victims. They leave screaming as he makes off into the night.

He is currently in the studio working on his next album, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty. “It’s way less commercial,” he told Power 106. “I felt like Hotel California was more commercial and I made more radio-type records. This album is straight rap.”

Kim Kardashian Celebrates Birthday with Kanye, Tyga, Blac Chyna, & Naya Rivera

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian took over Las Vegas on Friday to celebrate Kim’s birthday. Fresh off their engagement, the superstar couple rented a private jet and flew with Kim’s sisters Kourtney and Khloe, Tyga and his baby mama Blac Chyna, and Pussycat Dolls creator Robin Antin. Once they touched down, Kanye orchestrated a photo shoot on top of a Maybach and Rolls-Royce, capturing the moment on Instagram.

Later in the evening, a proud Kim watched from the audience with Tyga and Blac Chyna as her fiancé took the stage during his “Yeezus Tour” at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Following the show, they headed to TAO nightclub to celebrate Kim’s 33rd birthday. Kanye was all smiles as he walked with Kim through the hotel casino and watched as she posed on the red carpet. They held court inside with friends including Naya Rivera, while Tyga performed.

The couple is reportedly planning to wed sooner than later in a “blow out” ceremony. “We honestly haven’t had a moment to talk about it or even breathe, so we haven’t really talked about it, but whatever he wants,” Kim told PEOPLE.

When Kanye proposed to Kim at AT&T Park in San Francisco earlier this week, it came as a complete surprise. “I was shaking so much, shaking the entire time,” she said. “Like, ‘Is this really happening?’ It was like an out-of-body experience.”

New Music: Tyga f/ Justin Bieber – ‘Wait for a Minute’

Wait for a Minute

In addition to his own Music Mondays series, Justin Bieber lends his talents to Tyga on his new single “Wait for a Minute.” The Young Money rapper took to Power 106 this morning to unleash the official song after a previous version leaked in September.

It was originally recorded for Bieber, but will now serve as the first single off Tyga’s upcoming album The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty.

“That’s the new mature Bieber, so I just felt like it was great to do a record with him at this turning point in his career,” T-Raww told Yesi Ortiz. “Musically it just reminds me of when Timberlake got with Pharrell, when he went from *NSYNC to Justin Timberlake.”

The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty is due in the spring. “It’s gonna be a real good album,” he said of the follow-up to April’s Hotel California. “It’s gonna be more kinda how like Careless World, my first album, was… It’s way less commercial. I felt like Hotel California was more commercial and I made more radio-type records. This album is straight rap.”

Listen to their collaboration below.
