2 Chainz and Ariana Grande are ready to “Rule the World.”
The rapper and pop princess join forces once again in the highly-anticipated video for their standout collaboration off 2 Chainz’ new album Rap or Go to the League.
The swanky clip, which takes place “somewhere in Los Angeles,” finds the duo at a jazz club. Ariana plays a glamorous lounge singer, serenading the stylish crowd with her sultry voice, before Tity Boi comes through dripping in a white double-breasted suit to join her for a performance.
This marks their second collaboration following “7 rings,” which drew comparisons to 2 Chainz’ “Spend It.” 2 Chainz acknowledged the similarities on social media and the two eventually connected through Ariana’s manager Scooter Braun. After speaking for a few hours, they ended up recording the remix to “7 rings” as well as “Rule the World,” which samples Amerie’s 2002 song “Why Don’t We Fall in Love.”
“The song feels really good. She sings like an angel,” 2 Chainz told “The Breakfast Club.” “I feel like it’s gonna be a number one record.”
In addition to Ariana, Rap or Go to the League features appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, Chance the Rapper, Lil Wayne, Young Thug, and Kodak Black.
