The past seven days have been a blur for 2 Chainz. Not only did he release his fifth studio album Rap or Go to the League last Friday (March 1), but he also gifted his buddy/A&R, LeBron James, a chain after he surpassed Michael Jordan for fourth all-time on the NBA regular season scoring list Wednesday night. Today (March 8), Tity Boi teased fans with a 33-second clip of his forthcoming video “Rule the World” featuring Ariana Grande.
Clad in an all-white suit, Chainz is spotted kicking it at a luxe basement party with Grande. “Right now, I use love for a medication/ Back in the day I’d shoot Cupid with no hesitation,” he raps during his on-stage performance with Grande.
“Rule The World” marks the second collaboration between Chainz and Grande, who first paired up on the singer’s “7 rings (Remix)” last month. In a recent interview with Billboard, Grande’s producer, Tommy Brown, revealed how he initially landed Chainz on the song’s remix. “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,” he recalled.
Check out the teaser for “Rule the World” below.
