DaBaby Drops Video for New Single ‘Find My Way’

Posted by Unknown on 1:45 PM

DaBaby is on the run in the action-packed video for “Find My Way.”

The Charlotte rappers shows off his acting chops in the 10-minute short film for his new single, produced by DJ Kid. Social media influencer B. Simone plays his love interest in the Bonnie and Clyde-inspired visual, which finds the couple turning to crime as they try to secure money to aid DaBaby’s ailing grandmother.

“Certain situations make people do the unthinkable,” says DaBaby. “You ever seen somebody turn into a monster for a good cause?”

The 28-year-old MC and his lover ride out through the California desert on their crime spree. DaBaby teaches his girl how to use a gun before they rob a diner at gunpoint and make off with the cash. But their life of sin only brings them closer together. After checking into a motel, the wanted duo gets into a violent shootout with the owners, and only one man is left standing.

DaBaby and B. Simone previously teased the video on social media by posting flirty photos together. The beauty mogul has shared her feelings for DaBaby in the past, calling herself “DaBabyGirllll” and even dressing as his wife for Halloween.

This marks DaBaby’s first release since “Shut Up” in February. He also recently teamed up with Lil Yachty and Drake on “Oprah’s Bank Account.”

Tory Lanez Goes Live with Drake on ‘Quarantine Radio’

Posted by Unknown on 7:33 PM

Quarantine, quarantine, quarantine.

Tory Lanez returned to the airwaves with another episode of his popular “Quarantine Radio” series, and this time he welcomed his biggest guest yet—Drake.

Drizzy, whose new single “Toosie Slide” drops Thursday night, popped up during Tuesday’s episode while sipping from a large wine glass. “We know you were around Kevin Durant when he caught the corona. What were you doing to stay corona free at that time?” Tory asked his fellow Canadian.

“Honestly, a glass of wine keeps corona away, boys,” joked Drake, who tested negative for the virus.

Drake explained that it was Chris Brown who alerted him to join Tory’s live, which Tory called a “lightskin to lightskin moment.”

At one point, 315,000 viewers were tuned into the livestream, which Tory claims was a new record. They celebrated by taking a shot. “Before we take this shot, we have to shout out the fact that we’re the only two people in the game that have ever hit 300,000,” he said.

He also welcomed Young Thug during Tuesday’s episode. When asked what he’s doing during quarantine, Thugger replied, “Having sex.”

Tory is set to release his new album New Toronto 3 on April 10 featuring the single “Do the Most,” for which he released a video this week.

Listen to JAY-Z and The-Dream’s Unreleased Version of ‘Holy Grail’

Posted by Unknown on 12:54 PM

JAY-Z is reaching into the vault with an unreleased gem.

The Roc Nation mogul has unearthed the original version of his Justin Timberlake-assisted hit “Holy Grail.” The Grammy-winning single, which appeared on Hov’s 2013 album Magna Carta… Holy Grail, features vocals from The-Dream, who penned the track.

The unreleased version, which The-Dream debuted during his showdown with Sean Garrett on Instagram Live, features JAY-Z’s original lyrics over a stripped-down beat, while The-Dream supplies the soulful hook.

But despite Timberlake replacing him on the final version, The-Dream said he wasn’t mad. “I wasn’t tight – much respect to Justin Timberlake. I wasn’t tight at all,” he told TIDAL’s “Check In.” “However, I did feel that from the pain and what it meant for me… to voice that and to sing that… it just meant something.”

During the interview, he also teased more music with Jay Electronica, whom he collaborated with on A Written Testimony. “Jay Electronica called me right after ‘Holy Grail.’ He said, ‘I’m finna send you something right now.'”

Offset Responds to Cardi B Cheating Rumors

Posted by Unknown on 3:27 PM

Offset is on the defense.

The Migos rapper is speaking out after being accused of cheating on Cardi B. The rumors surfaced following a livestream video of Offset playing a video game in his room on Saturday. At one point, his wife enters the room while he quickly reaches for his phone and tries to put it in his pocket. When he’s unable to do so, he ends up putting it under him. The couple exchange “I love yous” and she leaves the room before he brings it back out.

After the video went viral, Offset took to his Instagram Live to address the speculation. “I know y’all making something out of nothin’ out of that stream when I was playing the game and my girl came in the room and I grabbed the phone or whatever the hell y’all sayin’ I did,” he said.

He continued to defend himself while clapping back at those who suggested he was being unfaithful. “Come on with that. We got so much negativity energy out here in the air, sickness,” added Offset. “Don’t bring none of that negativity to my family, man. We chillin’, man. We ain’t in y’all way. Everything positive. We got investments and big moves coming. Y’all just making something out of nothin’. That ain’t ’bout nothin’. I don’t be doing no negative nothin’. It ain’t about nothin’. Folks dying everyday.”

Offset has faced infidelity accusations in the past. In late 2018, Cardi announced that she was breaking up with her husband, only to reunite the following year. In December 2019, an Instagram hack allegedly exposed a conversation between Offset and 6ix9ine’s girlfriend Jade, but Cardi was quick to defend her husband. “Everybody know he done some dumb shit. But come on now, ni**as ain’t dumb, ni**as ain’t crazy,” she said.

Watch Offset address the speculation below.

Listen to Two New Frank Ocean Tracks, ‘Dear April’ and ‘Cayendo’

Posted by Unknown on 7:36 PM

New Frank Ocean music has hit the internet.

While the world remains on lockdown, two new tracks from the reclusive singer have surfaced when fans need it most. Ocean first debuted the songs, titled “Dear April” and “Cayendo,” during his PrEP+ parties last fall in New York.

Fans who ordered the 7″ vinyl of “Little Demon” were told last month that they would receive a “new, unreleased Frank Ocean song” instead. The vinyls finally shipped and started arriving this week featuring acoustic renditions of the two tracks, along with remixes by Justice and Sango. Fans have shared the playbacks on social media and SoundCloud (via HipHop-N-More).

As the blonded.blog points out, “Dear April” has “some real Endless vibes.” Ocean sings in Spanish on “Cayendo,” which is more reminiscent of 2016’s Blonde era.

Ocean hasn’t released new music since “In My Room” and “DHL” last fall. There were rumors that he planned to roll out a larger collection of music ahead of his Coachella set in April. He is now slated to headline the festival in October.

Joyner Lucas Pays Tribute to Will Smith in New Video

Posted by Unknown on 9:06 AM

Joyner Lucas is paying homage to Will Smith.

In anticipation of his upcoming album ADHD, the Massachusetts rapper drops off his latest video for “Will.” The four-minute clip serves as a tribute to Smith and finds him recreating the Hollywood legend’s iconic roles starting with “The French Prince of Bel-Air.”

“I’m feeling like Will / I think I’m a prince / I’m feeling myself,” raps Lucas.

After switching into Will’s Bad Boys character Mike Lowrey, he suits up for Men in Black and dons cowboy attire for 1999’s Wild Wild West. He also tackles other famous Smith roles including I, Robot, The Pursuit of Happyness, I Am Legend, Concussion, Aladdin, and even Smith’s animated character Oscar from Shark Tale.

At the end, he transforms into Smith himself. “Thank you for helping me build my wall,” Lucas tells his idol.

The video, which has over one million views, caught the attention of Smith, who offered his co-sign. “Dude, I am humbled and honored,” he said. “I just love what you’ve done, it’s creative. This video is ridiculous.”

“Will” can be found on ADHD, which drops Friday featuring Young Thug, Logic, Fabolous, and Chris Brown. See the tracklist here.

Big Sean Announces New Album ‘Detroit 2’

Posted by Unknown on 3:09 PM

Big Sean is about to drop the sequel.

In honor of his 32nd birthday, the rapper has finally announced his fifth studio album Detroit 2. He made the announcement in a nearly three-minute-long trailer, which finds him reflecting on the city that made him.

“Detroit to me is home, but I feel like it’s more than just a city,” he says while watching fireworks. “It’s for real, a mentality.”

The clip features snippets of new music including one track that samples Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature.” “Gettin’ to the paper like it’s human nature,” raps Sean Don alongside footage of his hometown and family.

He also hits the studio with Young Thug, Ty Dolla $ign, and Hit-Boy, and hints at potential appearances from Post Malone, Jhené Aiko, Wiz Khalifa, and A$AP Rocky, who all make cameos.

“It feel like a whole new energy in the city,” says Sean. “It’s inspiring to watch to the point that it inspired me to go harder than ever. It’s like the phoenix rising out the ashes.”

Detroit 2, which is billed as “coming soon,” is the sequel to Sean’s 2012 mixtape Detroit. He first teased the project on last year’s “Overtime” freestyle. “I know which ones that’s been rockin’ with me since the prequel,” he raps. “Just be cool / I know your favorite one, dawg / I’m ’bout to drop the sequel / Ni**a, this just the preview, Don.”

Sean was set to perform new music at Coachella next month, but the festival has now been delayed until October due to the coronavirus pandemic. Detroit 2 marks the follow-up to 2017’s I Decided. “I took some time to work on myself and I was able to have a good therapist, good mentors,” he told Beats 1. “I truthfully feel like it’ll really shine through on the full album.”

Prior to getting tested, he had been self-quarantined and taking extra precautions including wearing gloves and masks. “My test came back positive so y’all gotta take this stuff serious. Stay at home, self-quarantine,” he said. “Do not come outside for however long they’re saying. If you have symptoms, you need to get checked out or whatever.”

He had symptoms including fever and cough, but he’s doing OK. “I’m good. I don’t got no problems right now. The other day I had a slight fever and a cough. I feel better now. I don’t have no fever,” he added.

He also issued a warning to others who may not be taking the pandemic seriously. “I feel like I’m good, but y’all better take it serious. It’s real out here.”

Other celebrities have also tested positive for coronavirus including Idris Elba, Tom Hanks, Kevin Durant, and Bravo’s Andy Cohen. Drake took a test after spending time with Durant and it came back negative, while Meek Mill has revealed that he had “flu like symptoms” in December, but a doctor was unable to diagnose him.

Drake Shows Off His Closet Including Rare Sneakers and Jewelry

Posted by Unknown on 8:33 PM

Drake is opening up his closet.

While he remains in isolation after testing negative for the coronavirus, Champagne Papi is passing the time by showing off his expensive wardrobe. Taking to Instagram Stories, he revealed his extensive sneaker collection, which includes the unreleased Dior x Air Jordan 1 high-tops, Supreme Air Force 1s, Off-White Jordan 5s, and Jordan 5 Tokyo T23s, which sell for over $4,000. He also has shelves dedicated to Kobe Bryant’s signature shoes.

Other highlights from Drizzy’s closet include a diamond-covered Patek Philippe Nautilus watch, which costs over six figures, along with an iPhone 11 in a custom Nike alligator case. His lavish collection also includes a yellow Birkin bag and Chrome Hearts bag and denim, along with a Louis Vuitton shearling jacket by Virgil Abloh.

Drake was tested for the virus after hanging out with Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant, who was diagnosed with COVID-19. During an Instagram Live with his father over the weekend, Drake revealed that his results came back negative.

He also opened up about the painful testing procedure. “That test was uncomfortable though. They put that Q-tip all the way inside your thoughts,” he said.

Drake has been holed up in his 35,000-square-foot Toronto mansion for nearly a week, which has allowed him time to reflect. “This is like a moment in history that we’ll probably never get back again, a moment where you get to be by yourself or be with your loved ones or just check in with people,” he told his dad. “It makes you really realize what kind of routine we get so accustomed to where it starts to just coast and sail by. The days just start flying and flying. And now we have this thing that’s making us just wanna call each other, be face to face, show some love.”

Cardi B Thinks Celebrities Are Being Paid to Say They Have Coronavirus

Posted by Unknown on 5:15 PM

Cardi B has more to say about the coronavirus.

The outspoken rapper went on Instagram Live on Saturday night where she shared her own conspiracy theory about the COVID-19 outbreak.

Several celebrities have come forward to reveal they have coronavirus including Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, Idris Elba, Bravo’s Andy Cohen, and Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant. But not everyone has exhibited symptoms, which has Cardi puzzled.

“Let’s say if I have the coronavirus right now. How am I supposed to know I got it because sometimes I be like, ‘If y’all have a cough, you have it,'” she said. “But then I be seeing these basketball players say like, ‘Yeah, I have the coronavirus, but I don’t got no symptoms.’ So how the fuck am I supposed to know when I’m supposed to get tested for it? Y’all ni**as is playing with me. That’s my problem right there.”

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and a dry cough. About 80 percent of people who get the virus experience a mild case. “I feel ok, I have no symptoms so far but have been isolated since I found out about my possible exposure to the virus,” said Elba after revealing his positive diagnosis.

During her IG Live, Cardi also questioned whether celebrities are being paid to say they have the infectious disease. “I’m starting to feel like y’all ni**as is paying ni**as to say that they got it,” added Cardi.

And if checks are in fact being cut, Cardi wants in. “And if y’all are paying ni**as to say that they got it, pay me too,” she said. “Bitch tryna get paid.”

Cardi, who was in the studio working on her new album, also admitted that she wants to leave the house so she can get liposuction. “A bitch tryna get lipo,” she said. “I needs to know when this shit gonna finish.”

The “Press” rapper previously went viral with her rant about the coronavirus. Her video was remixed by DJ iMarkkeyz and turned into a song, which is now set to debut on the Billboard charts. Cardi also revealed that the coronavirus has caused her to delay the release of her new single.

Kanye West and Taylor Swift’s ‘Famous’ Phone Call Leaks

Posted by Unknown on 5:00 PM

The saga continues.

Four years after Kim Kardashian shared a phone call between Kanye West and Taylor Swift discussing his “Famous” lyrics, a longer recording of their conversation leaked on Friday night, which appears to support Swift’s argument that she was blindsided by some of the lyrics.

The 10-minute clip starts off by Kanye asking Taylor to release “Famous” on her Twitter account. “So my next single, I wanted you to tweet it … so that’s why I’m calling you. I wanted you to put the song out,” he tells the singer.

He then explains that he included a “very controversial line” about Swift in the song and that he contemplated the lyrics for eight months. “It’s gonna go Eminem a little bit so can you brace yourself for a second?” he says before Swift asks, “Is it gonna be mean?”

“No, I don’t think it’s mean,” responds Ye before revealing that he played the song for his wife and Ninja from Die Antwoord. While Kim thought it was “crazy” at first, she ended up loving it. “It’s like my wife’s favorite fucking line,” he adds.

He then raps the lyric for Swift: “So it says, ‘To all my Southside ni**as that know me best / I feel like Taylor Swift might owe me sex,” to which Swift responds, “That’s not mean.”

However, the lyric that made it into the final version of the track is different. “For all my Southside ni**as that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous,” he raps.

In another portion of the call, West asks Swift how she would feel if he included a line that said “I made her famous.” “Did you say that? Oh God, well, what am I going to do about it at this point,” says Swift. “It’s just kind of, like, whatever at this point, but I mean, you gotta tell the story the way it happened to you and the way that you experienced it. You honestly didn’t know who I was before that. It doesn’t matter if I sold 7 million of that album before you did that, which is what happened. You didn’t know who I was before that and that’s fine. Yeah, I can’t wait to hear it.”

In 2016, Kim Kardashian defended her husband against accusations by sharing a portion of the phone call. At the time, it appeared as if Swift gave approval for West’s lyrics, which did not include, “I made that bitch famous.”

Swift maintained that she was telling the truth and that Kanye never told her that he was going to call her “that bitch.” “It doesn’t exist because it never happened,” she wrote.

After the newly-leaked footage surfaced, Swift fans took it as vindication that she was telling the truth and threw a #KanyeWestIsOverParty on social media, while Kanye fans called the feud “old news.”

Listen to the full phone call below.

Chris Brown Separated From Son Amid Coronavirus Travel Ban

Posted by Unknown on 12:24 PM

The coronavirus outbreak is impacting many families including Chris Brown.

The travel restrictions imposed to fight the COVID-19 pandemic have kept the singer away from his 4-month-old son, Aeko. According to HollywoodLife, Aeko’s mother, Ammika Harris, traveled to Germany with the couple’s son in January, but Chris is unable to visit because of President Donald Trump’s travel ban. Additionally, Europe has closed its borders banning travelers from outside in order to slow the spread of coronavirus.

“This is not easy on Chris because right now he doesn’t know exactly when he’s going to be able to see his son again,” says a source. “First there was the US travel ban and now the EU has fully closed their borders so he can’t go there and visit for at least a month. It’s rough.”

The Only one for me ❤

A post shared by Ammika Harris (@ammikaaa) on

While Chris misses his son, he is trying to remain optimistic and has been keeping in touch with him thanks to technology. “Chris is doing his best to stay strong,” adds the source. “He FaceTimes with Ammika and he gets to see Aeko that way. And she sends him videos and pictures all day.”

Prior to the outbreak, Ammika had been in Germany for work, where she is modeling for Fashion Nova. Her mother also lives in the country. Ammika has been keeping Chris updated about their son’s life by posting photos on social media.

While U.S. residents are allowed to return from Europe, the process is complicated. American travelers have to fly to one of the 13 pre-approved U.S. airports, where they will be screened. If they test positive for the coronavirus, they won’t be allowed back into the country. If they are allowed back, they will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days.

Meanwhile, Chris has been self-isolated at his home in Tarzana, Calif. All Californians have been directed to stay at home amid the coronavirus outbreak. Earlier this week, he posted a photo of himself in his garage eating a bowl of cereal while in quarantine.

She posted a preview of the track on TikTok last night before debuting the full version today.

Just last week, JoJo dropped her empowering new single “Man” off her upcoming album good to know, due May 1. She will also hit the road on a worldwide tour, which is currently set to kick off April 21 in Seattle.

Eminem Announces ‘Godzilla Challenge’ Winner

Posted by Unknown on 6:30 PM

Eminem issued a monster challenge to his fans and they delivered.

Last month, the Detroit rapper challenged his legions of fans to spit the monstrous third verse of his Music to Be Murdered By single “Godzilla.” The response to the #GodzillaChallenge was overwhelming as fans flooded social video platform Triller to showcase their fiery flows in return for prizes and recognition from the “Rap God” himself.

But there could only be one winner. JackSherlock1 was crowned after he snapped while lip-syncing to Eminem’s venemous verse while holding up his Eminem vinyl collection. Slim Shady also recognized five runner-ups.

Last week, Em dropped the epic video for the Juice WRLD-assisted track, which finds him breathing fire, wielding a bloody chainsaw, and roaming a department store with godzillas, with cameos from Dr. Dre and Mike Tyson. “Godzilla” appears on Em’s album Music to Be Murdered By, which became his 10th No. 1 album on the Billboard 200.

Idris Elba Diagnosed with Coronavirus

Posted by Unknown on 2:52 PM

Idris Elba is the latest celebrity to be diagnosed with coronavirus.

On Monday, the British actor revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19. “This morning, I got some test results back for coronavirus and it came back positive and it sucks,” said the 47-year-old “Wire” star in a video posted to Twitter.

“I’m doing OK,” he added while seated alongside his wife Sabrina, who has not been tested but is feeling OK.

He revealed that he didn’t have any symptoms, but got tested last Friday because he was exposed to someone who also tested positive. He immediately isolated himself and got his results on Monday. Elba recently spoke at the WE Day 2020 event in London on March 4. Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, the wife of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, was also in attendance and reportedly posed with the actor. She tested positive last week.

Elba stressed the severity of the disease and urged his followers to take precautions. “This is serious. Now’s the time to really think about social distancing, washing your hands,” he said.

He also noted that people may carry the virus and not even know it. The best way to stop the spread is to self-quarantine.

“We’ve told our families. We’ve told our colleagues. Transparency is probably the best thing for this right now,” said Elba, who urged solidarity. “We live in a divided world right now. We can all feel it. It’s been bullshit. But now’s the time for solidarity, now’s the time for thinking about each other.”

He received support from friends including Kid Cudi, who tweeted, “Holy fuck. Sendin u love brother.”

Other celebrities including Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have been diagnosed with COVID-19, along with Bond girl Olga Kurylenko. Universal Music CEO Sir Lucian Grainge was also hospitalized Sunday after testing positive for coronavirus.

Donald Glover Releases Surprise Project Featuring Ariana Grande, 21 Savage, & SZA

Posted by Unknown on 2:06 PM

The wait for Donald Glover’s new album may finally be over.

In the early hours of Sunday morning (March 15), the actor-rapper also known as Childish Gambino released what many are calling his fourth studio album. The collection of new music arrived without warning via a website called Donald Glover Presents.

Donald Glover Presents

The site features a looped video of 12 tracks that are not identified by name. The hour-plus stream includes a collaboration with 21 Savage and SZA that some are calling “Vibrate,” as well as Ariana Grande, who appears on the tentatively titled “Time,” which was featured in Glover’s Guava Island film co-starring Rihanna. Two previously-released tracks, 2018’s “Feels Like Summer” and 2019’s “Algorythm,” are also included, while Glover’s son also makes a cameo.

The project was accompanied by artwork featuring a black-and-white cartoon strip showing a city block erupting into chaos, with people taking selfies and jumping out of burning buildings. The strip is divided into four parts, with “cover” written over the first panel.

If this is a new album, it would be Glover’s first since 2016’s Awaken, My Love!, which he released as Childish Gambino. Glover, who also collaborated with Beyoncé on last year’s Lion King: The Gift, previously said he was retiring the Gambino moniker. “I’m making another project right now, to make, but I like endings,” he said in a 2018 interview. “I think they’re important to progress.”

Machine Gun Kelly Reignites Eminem Feud, Says He ‘Killed a Goat’

Posted by Unknown on 3:27 PM

Machine Gun Kelly is not finished.

A year-and-a-half after exchanging disses, the Cleveland rapper is still relishing in his feud with Eminem. On his new single “Bullets with Names” featuring Young Thug, RJMrLA, and Lil Duke, which dropped Friday, MGK makes reference to the “Rap God.” Over the ruthless trap beat, he boasts about killing a “goat” and putting him in his coffin.

“Killed me a goat so my jacket got stains on it / Wipin’ my nose like I got some cocaine on it,” he raps on his rapid-fire verse. “Pulled out his coffin and ate me a plate on it / Called up his bitch, showed my dick, let ’em lay on it.”

In January, MGK took another shot at his idol-turned-rival after Em participated in the viral Dolly Parton Challenge. “50 year old artists tryna be relevant to the youth by posting trending meme’s is something i never thought i’d see #2020,” he wrote in response to the meme.

Eminem previously declared that their long-running beef was over on “Unaccommodating” off his album Music To Be Murdered By. “But when they ask me is the war finished with MGK? Of course it is,” raps Slim Shady. “I cleansed him of his mortal sins, I’m God and the Lord forgives, even the devil worshippers / I’m moving on.”

The two ignited their beef in the summer of 2018 with a series of diss tracks. After hearing MGK’s verse on Tech N9ne’s “No Reason,” Eminem fired the first round on his Kamikaze cut “Not Alike.” Shortly after, MGK returned fire on “Rap Devil,” inspired by Em’s own 2013 track “Rap God.”

“Bullets with Names” arrives ahead of MGK’s upcoming album Tickets to My Downfall, due later this year. He can also be seen in Jason Orley’s comedy Big Time Adolescence and in the upcoming action-western The Last Song of Issac LeMay.

Jhené Aiko and Miguel Perform ‘Happiness Over Everything’ on ‘Kimmel’

Posted by Unknown on 11:09 AM

In the midst of uncertain times, Jhené Aiko spread some sunshine during her late-night appearance.

A week after her “Ellen” performance, the R&B siren took over “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” to perform her Chilombo single “Happiness Over Everything (H.O.E.)” with Miguel. Following an introduction from guest host and former presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg, Jhené brought the song to life by recreating the party vibe from the music video, complete with tiki torches, Polynesian dancers, and a harpist.

“Way out there in TV land, hands up,” said Miguel while standing alongside Jhené.

The “Kimmel” performance was taped without a studio audience, a move many talk shows are taking due to the coronavirus risk. Meanwhile, three other late-night programs—”The Late Show,” “The Tonight Show,” and “Late Night,” have decided to suspend production of new episodes until later this month.

Chilombo, which features appearances from Nas, Big Sean, and John Legend, is expected to debut at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with 140-155,000 equivalent album units. Jhené has also announced plans to release a deluxe edition.

Teyana Taylor Celebrates Family in ‘We Got Love’ Video

Posted by Unknown on 3:15 PM

It’s a family affair in Teyana Taylor’s new video for “We Got Love.”

The uplifting clip, directed by Teyana “Spike Tey” Taylor, finds the R&B songstress celebrating the love for her family. She pays homage to her royal roots, portraying an African queen while seated in a throne alongside her husband Iman and daughter Junie. Dressed in her African attire, Queen Tey rules her kingdom and shows off her moves while preaching self-love.

There is also footage of Teyana with her 4-year-old daughter and home video of Iman proposing to his wife, along with couples of all races and genders celebrating their love.

The clip features a powerful outro from Ms. Lauryn Hill, who delivers her message of happiness and purpose, and ends with a dedication to the Fugees legend: “Thank you Ms. Lauryn Hill.”

“We Got Love” was released in December and is set to appear on Teyana’s upcoming project The Album. It follows her King Combs-assisted single “How You Want It? (HYWI?)” and the Kehlani collaboration “Morning.”
