2 Chainz & Ariana Grande Are the Life Of the Party in 'Rule the World' Video: Watch
After having 2 Chainz hop on the remix to her record-breaking smash "7 rings," Ariana Grande returned the favor exactly a month later when she popped up on Rap Or Go to the League standout "Rule the World." The pair connect once again for the Hitmaka-produced track's visual on Monday (March 11), which had been heavily teased throughout the past week.
The Sebastian Sdaigui-directed clip finds Ari and Chainz timetraveling decades back to an underground jazz club somewhere out in Los Angeles. Grande grips the mic in her feathery sleeves and sets the dance party in motion.
The ATL native takes the baton in his dressing room, before joining the pop sensation on stage in a crisp all-white suit. The visual comes to a close with an autographed snapshot of the dynamic duo being framed on the wall of the club, solidifying that their epic performance will now last a lifetime.
Producer Tommy Brown, who has worked with both 2 Chainz and Ariana, explained that he had the pair link up in the studio to build organic chemistry, rather than email "7 Rings" back-and-forth. "At first, Chainz wanted me to send him the song, but I was like, 'No, we all have to get in the studio together.' This was in Los Angeles, and it was really cultures meeting," TBHits told Billboard.
