The Colin Tilley-directed visual finds Wu and Scott hopscotching their way through the Auto-Tune driven track. In a dark warehouse illuminated by neon lights, Wu strikes first with his sing-rapped verse. “I got all this money, so I know you won’t expect this (yahhh)/ Runnin’ on the low-low, but I know that you interested/ I just made a call, you and your girls is on the guest list (yah, yah)/ Maybe you’re still liquor, but I swear I wanna French kiss,” offers Wu.
Scott matches Wu’s energy and skates through his verse with similar vigor. “I might write a song about you tonight/ You the perfect melody for the life (and what I like)/ Let me make you famous, Michael Jackson Dangerous/ You my favorite song, add you to my playlist,” sings La Flame.
In an interview with Beats 1, Wu elaborated on how his collaboration with Scott came to fruition. “I’m based out still in China, in Beijing, but I try to fly out every time when I make music,” said Wu who recorded the record with Scott in LA. “I think it’s so important that you want to be in the room with these people making music together, because that’s what it’s all about. Especially hip-hop music, because you have to be vibing.”
