Drake’s “In My Feelings” Video

Drake has finally released the highly anticipated video for Scorpion’s biggest single “In My Feelings,” the fifth single from the album following “God’s Plan,” “Nice For What,” “I’m Upset” and “Don’t Matter to Me.”

The video for the song that sparked the summer’s biggest dance craze and viral #InMyFeelingsChallenge stars La La Anthony as Drizzy’s love interest Kiki, Phylicia Rashad as Kiki’s overprotective mother, and Instagram Shiggy—who helped propel the song to #1 by starting the #InMyFeelingsChallenge—as an annoying, loud-mouthed Production Assistant. It also features cameos from Yung Miami of the City Girls, New Orleans rapper Capito and Big Freedia.

The visual begins with Drake, with a gold grill in his mouth, standing outside of Kiki’s window after she ignores his texts. “I’m trying to tell you, I love you, girl, for real,” he says using a terrible New Orleans accent before her mother (Phylicia Rashad) shows up and tries to get him to go away. From there, the 6 God takes over New Orleans as girls perform the “In My Feelings” Challenge all over the place.

At the end of the video, Drake wakes up in his production trailer, where he reveals it was all a dream. “I just had some dream that I made some song about some girl,” he explains to his friend CJ. “I was from New Orleans, grill in my mouth. And then this kid from New York that spits when he talks all the time did some dance to it. And then the world did the dance, and Will Smith was there. Nobody would stop. It was terrible.”

The video ends with viral videos of celebrities doing the dance, including DJ Khaled, Odell Beckham Jr., Will Smith, Lil Duval, Leslie Jones, Ciara & Russell Wilson, Millie Bobby Brown, Shiggy, and more.

Lil Duval’s “Smile Bitch” Video Feat. Snoop Dogg & Ball Greezy

Hot on the heels of his viral #SmileBitch challenge, Lil Duval has released the official music video for his single of the same name.

The “Smile Bitch” video, which features Snoop Dogg and Ball Greezy, takes viewers on a psychedelic journey as the lyrics “I’m living my best life, I ain’t going back and forth with you n****s” and “smile bitch” are echoed throughout the song.

What started out as a joke could end up being a hit for Lil Duval, as the song’s lyrics are hella catchy and has already gone viral on social media, with celebs like Future, Kevin Hart and more singing the hook, which led to them having cameos in the video.

WATCH: XXXTentacion Goes to His Own Funeral in “SAD!” Music Video

Yesterday, it was announced through XXXTentacion’s Instagram story that he would be posthumously releasing the music video for his hit single “SAD!” And this morning, as promised, the video hit YouTube at 9 a.m. sharp.

With the rapper’s public memorial taking place Wednesday (Jun. 27) in Sunrise, Florida, which was attended by thousands of fans, it looks like during the filming of this music video, XXX may have been foreshadowing his own death.

The visuals were written and creative-directed by X himself and could easily be compared to Tupac’s “I Aint Mad Atcha” video. Without spoiling too much of the plot, we’ll just let you watch it for yourself below:

The haunting, thought-provoking and captivating JMP-directed visuals find the rapper given the task of battling himself as a means to end the negative energy in the world and spread positivity.

At the beginning of the video, the viewer is asked a series of questions in text-form relating to themselves, with one of the questions including: “Why do you love?” When the rapper appears on screen, he’s seen attending his own funeral, and when he walks up to his casket, his body—laying with his iconic half-blonde half-black locks—jumps up and attacks him.

Throughout the video, XXX can be seen sitting hunched over in a dark room clearly avoiding eye contact with a robed, masked figure, who we find out was the one asking all of the questions and making the statements about changing the world by spreading positivity. “The world is in need of change, humans must learn to love and compromise rather than destroy,” the shadowy figure says. “The world will soon be more loving, you will see.”

The song plays as XXX fights himself while onlookers watch, which is likely a visual representation of him “battling his old self” in front of the world. After winning the fight, XXX sits on the ground and uses supernatural powers to control his alter ego’s body, dragging it across the ground and throwing it up against the wall.

The video ends with XXX laying his old self to rest—a powerful representation of what the rapper was facing and thinking during his last months on earth.

The video for “SAD!” comes just a few days after the single skyrocketed to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and became the first posthumous No. 1 single by a lead solo artist since The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Mo Money Mo Problems” in 1997.

Cardi B Parties With Bad Bunny & J Balvin in “I Like It” Video

Cardi B is on a roll!

Just one week after dropping her “Be Careful” video, Cardi B is back with the release of the music video for her latest single “I Like It,” featuring Bad Bunny and J. Balvin.

The colorful Eif Rivera-directed video finds the pregnant rapper—dressed in garments inspired by the late legendary Latin singer Celia Cruz—meeting up with her collaborators for a dance party that starts in the club and ends up in the streets of Miami.

The Billboard Hot 100 charting song samples Pete Rodriguez’s “I Like It Like That” and is a strong contender for song of the summer.

While Cardi continues her non-stop promotional campaign for her debut album Invasion of Privacy, the 25-year-old mommy-to-be is also patiently awaiting the birth of her first child with her fiancé Offset. “I love my little one, I wanna kiss her,” she shared on Twitter.

Baby Cardi will make her big arrival sometime near the end of the summer right before Cardi is due to kick off her joint tour with Bruno Mars.

Check out her “I Like It” video above.

Maroon 5 & Cardi B’s Cameo-Packed “Girls Like You” Video Celebrates Women

Maroon 5 teams up with a pregnant Cardi B and about two dozen famous women in the video for “Girls Like You.”

With Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine in the center, the nearly five minute star-studded video pays homage to women as the camera pans around the room showing off appearances from famous women like singer Camila Cabello, Olympian Aly Raisman, comedienne Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot, YouTube personality Lilly Singh, Tiffany Haddish, “Stranger Things” actress Millie Bobby Brown, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, race car driver Danica Patrick, Rita Ora and more.

The final scene of the video features a cameo from Levine’s wife Behati Prinsloo and their adorable 1-year-old daughter Dusty Rose.

Dressed in an oversized yellow blazer (to hide that pregnant belly), Cardi B delivers her verse: “Not too long ago I was dancing for dollars / Know it’s really real if I let you meet my mama / You don’t want a girl like me, I’m too crazy / But every other girl you meet is fugazi…”

Cardi gushed about the collaboration on Instagram, writing, “I F**KING LOVE THIS SONG AND THE VIDEO IS SOO INSPIRING!!!”

Cardi B Is a Scorned Bride in Kill Bill-Inspired “Be Careful” Video

Don’t mess with Cardi B! The rapper shows us exactly what she means when she tells her man to “Be Careful” in her latest music video, which shows the pregnant rapper as a scorned bride who becomes a not-so-grieving widow as fast as she became a wife.

In the opening scenes of the Kill Bill-inspired visuals, directed by Jora Frantzis, Cardi is a not-so-blushing bride in an all-white gown as she raps about infidelity while standing at the altar with the man she’s supposed to spend the rest of her life with.

But what’s supposed to be a happy time for Cardi quickly turns into sorrow as the video goes dark (literally and figuratively) and Cardi, now dressed in all black, rolls up to the same church she got married in. However, this time, she’s attending her husband’s funeral.

As she looks into his open casket, she raps about how he “makes [her] sick” before she closes the coffin and rides off into the sunset.

Watch Cardi B’s “Be Careful” video here:

After taking a leave of absence from social media earlier this month in response to her feud with Azelia Banks, Cardi reactivated her Instagram to promote her new video.

She talked about the video shoot in a post on IG, calling it “one of the hardest videos” she’s ever done.

“It was one of the hardest videos I ever did because it was in the desert, like in the middle of nowhere, and bitch I was so hot,” she said. “My pregnant motherf**kin’ ass. I never sweat, and I was sweatin’ that day, like my underarm was sweating, under my titties. I never get under titty sweat, but that day, for sure.”

“Be Careful,” which has been certified gold, is the third single from Cardi’s gold-certified debut album Invasion of Privacy, following the hit singles “Bodak Yellow” and “Bartier Cardi.”

The femcee, who is expecting her first child, a baby girl, with her fiancé Offset this summer, is due to hit the road with Bruno Mars for his “24K Magic World Tour” this September.
