Eric Bellinger blends Scandal with House of Cards for his politically themed joint visual for “G.O.A.T. / In My Prime,” two standouts from his previously released mixtape Eric B. for President: Term 1.
“I wanted something along the lines of my project Eric B. for President: Term 1, so when the director, Sat, contacted me about doing music videos themed around the TV show House of Cards, the timing was perfect,” Bellinger tells Billboard over email. “He had an idea about doing a political drama that connected the two music videos — people don’t really do that anymore so I thought it was a great idea. And since everyone was sucked into this crazy election, it only made sense.”
For the ARoc-assisted “G.O.A.T.,” the singer/songwriter plays a presidential candidate who sabotages his opponent’s chances by having a seductive saboteur create a sex tape scandal that allows Bellinger to secure the win. He then hosts his own celebratory bash for “In My Prime” featuring Phil Ade.
The clip also stars familiar faces actor Columbus Short and singer Keri Hilson. Watch the two-for-one video for “G.O.A.T. / In My Prime” below.
