You can add Lil Yachty and Carly Rae Jepsen to the Grammy Awards' list of all-star collaborations. Though this one isn't happening at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, it's going down in a Target.

The retail giant has paired the duo with producer Mike WiLL Made-It, director Roman Coppola and choreographer Mandy Moore of La La Land fame for what promises to be an epic three minute commercial spot that will air during the Grammy Awards. In it, they will reinvent the Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock classic "It Takes Two" with amidst a full on spectacle that's basically everything you wish your trips to the department store were. 

"It was a great experience," Lil Yachty tells Billboard. "I got to bring my whole team out for filming so we had so much fun! It was fire."

In a sneak peak, premiering exclusively with Billboard, we see Lil Yachty rapping on a hoverboard wearing VR goggles with backup dancers all around him in the tech section. Meanwhile, Jepsen shows off some rapping chops she never knew she had. There's dancing in the ice cream aisle, a cube made out of Bounce dryer sheet boxes, fishing in inflatable rafts and much more. 

"It takes a village," says Jepsen in the preview, in reference to recreating "It Takes Two" and filming the commercial. "It takes a lot."

"Yeah, it takes way more than two," agrees Lil Yachty.
