TWENTY88 reunites in Big Sean’s new video for “Body Language” featuring Jhené Aiko and Ty Dolla $ign.
The nostalgic clip recreates iconic scenes from ’90s romantic dramas including Poetic Justice, Waiting to Exhale, Love Jones, and The Best Man. In the first Poetic Justice-inspired scene, Sean plays a postal worker like Tupac, while Jhené takes on Janet Jackson’s role. A scorned Jhené later sets her man’s car on fire like Angela Bassett in Waiting to Exhale.
The couple shows off their chemistry during a steamy makeout session before Jhené confesses to her sister about the sex, like Nia Long’s character Nina in Love Jones. “It was like his dick just—talked to me,” she says.
The cinematic moments continue as Ty and Sean’s friends appear at a bachelor party straight out of The Best Man.
“Body Language,” which samples Shawn Harris’ “Soulful Moaning,” is one of two collaborations with Jhené on Sean’s album Detroit 2, which also features Travis Scott, Post Malone, Young Thug, Diddy, and Lil Wayne.
Sean is now looking toward the future, which may include a new album from TWENTY88. Earlier this year, he announced that a sequel to the duo’s 2016 debut was in the works.
*nah I don’t hope, I declare 2021 to be the best year of our lives so far! It’s on us! Let’s go!
