Behind the Video: T-Pain f/ Wiz Khalifa & Lily Allen - '5 O'Clock'
It’s “5 O’Clock” in the morning and T-Pain is roaming the streets in a “hot ass sweater and even hotter trench coat.” Teddy P. takes us behind the scenes of the Erik White-directed video for the Lily Allen-sampled single off his forthcoming album rEVOLVEr. He visits the Red Light District while his wife, played by an Allen look-alike, waits for him to come home.
“The song is basically about me being where I am at a club. I’m just taking too long and Lily wants me to come home right now,” explained T-Pain. “And it happens a lot with me in real life, so why not make a song about it? She doesn’t care where I am or what I’m doing, she just wants me to come home. But she needs me, she needs her hubby.”
Featured guest Wiz Khalifa, who appears in an American flag sweater and Chicago Bulls cap, revealed that the two developed a relationship after Pain remixed his hit “Black and Yellow.” “He’s a real ass ni**a so I fuck with cool individuals,” said Wiz.
