“It was iconic to have such an influential artist in the hip-hop game today such as DJ Khaled embody the modern day Heavy D in the music video while featuring pop culture figures such as Jaylen Brown and my brother Justin," King Combs tells Billboard about his "Love You Better" video.
"[They] reminded me why I have made it my mission to bridge the gap between the new and old generations of music. I want people to know the '90s music scene will continue to inspire todays’ top hits across genres but will always need to include unique and modern sounds. It was also amazing to have all of CYN and friends be a part of the real party vibe while being able to share this incredible experience in my career with them."
For Combs, the thought of recreating Biggie's "One More Chance" while currently being the flagship artist for his father's iconic label was a humbling experience for him.
"I have always been inspired by the iconic Bad Boy music of the '90s, and Notorious B.I.G. has been a heavy influence in my musical career since I realized I wanted to continue the legacy of such a remarkable era in hip-hop," Combs states. "It is an honor to pay homage to his iconic 'One More Chance' music video alongside my friend and collaborator Chris Brown as we were waiting for this very moment to bring the video to light. 'One More Chance' is one of my favorite videos and its amazing to have 'Love You Better' bring back the energy and essence of the video for the culture.”
