There's a lot to talk about in Zhu's "Came For The Low" music video. At first, it seems like it's going to be a tongue-in-cheek recap of the meme-made-history events of Sept. 20, aka "Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us." About 51 humans gathered at the gates of the famously-classified airforce base in Nevada, including DJ Paul Oakenfold, but it turns out Zhu and his camera crew may have been there as well.

Aliens are not the craziest part of this video, though. In 2014, Zhu hit the dance music scene as a total mystery man. His noir-tinged tune "Faded" was a hot breakout, backed by Skrillex and others. It even earned him a Grammy nomination, but in 2015, he revealed himself as Chinese-American Steven Zhu.

He still doesn't like to show his face, though -- until now. There is so much unfiltered face in this steamy clip, you almost forget about all the ladies in lingerie.

The most unexpected moment comes at the end of the video, when a "reporter" seems to follow Zhu to his car asking a bunch of questions ("Mr Zhu, can you please tell us about the album?" and "you're giving $1,000 to every one of your fans that wears a gas mask?"). That starts to give it away, but almost nothing can prepare you for the moment Democratic presidential nominee Andrew Yang (famous for his campaign promise to give every American citizen 18 years or older a Universal Basic Income of $1,000 a month) appears behind a tinted window.

It's official. Zhu is #YangGang. He was also officially added to the MTV's SnowGlobe Festival lineup in Tahoe this New Year's Eve, so check him out on that lineup alongside Skrillex, Fisher and more, the  watch "Came For The Low" below.
