This article was updated to include a statement from Bryce Vine about his decision to take the “La La Land” video down. It was then updated a second time to include the video upon its release.
Bryce Vine debuted the official video for his latest single “La La Land,” featuring YG, on Thursday (April 4).
The cheeky song, which features an assist from YG dripping in sexual witticisms, is a clever send-up to Los Angeles culture with references to 1OAK nightclub, Coachella, Instagram fame and more scattered throughout the lyrics. “La la la la la/If you wanna waste time/Baby, waste your time with me in California,” Vine croons on the track’s laid-back, sing-along chorus.
The video contains nods to filmmakers like Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino, as Vine cruises through L.A. in a convertible, courting a beautiful woman (model/actress Melanie Iglesias) that he met at 1OAK, of course. Things go awry when YG enters the picture, and Vine’s perfect movie set begins to turn rather wavy.
“La La Land” follows the success of “Drew Barrymore,” Vine’s debut hit.
UPDATE: Vine’s “La La Land” video has been removed for the time being, in light of the death of Nipsey Hussle. See Vine’s statement below.
