BROCKHAMPTON PRESENTS: "COUNT ON ME"

Fans have been asking for a Brockhampton and Lil Nas X collaboration for the last few years. Now, their wish has come true.

On Wednesday (April 14), Brockhampton released their new music video for "Count On Me," the latest single off of their new album Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine, with special guest Lil Nas X joining member Dominic Fike for a car ride into the wilderness that gets weird quickly.

At the outset of the clip, the two artists are seen driving on a country road, laughing and joking with one another. Nas asks Fike what music he's been into lately, with Fike answering that he's been getting into "really old bands," like Radiohead. "Who the f--k is Radiohead?" Nas laughs before making clear that he's just kidding.

The video quickly transitions into the new song, as Nas and Fike pull into a forest and go out for a stroll. Moments later, the clip takes a trippy turn, with the pair's bodies shifting into amorphous, 3D-animated versions of themselves, surrounded by bright colors and rapidly-moving images. The two acknowledge the bad trip they're having, before having an intense make-out session by a lake.

The new video is the latest off of Brockhampton's new album Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine, which frontman Kevin Abstract said in a tweet would be the band's second-to-last album. "2 brockhampton albums in 2021 - these will be our last," he wrote.
