Offset‘s “Red Room” originally landed on streaming services back in November, but was quickly scrubbed from the internet’s circulation and deemed to be a leak. On Thursday (Feb. 14), Offset gave “Red Room” an official release, raising anticipation going into his untitled solo album slated for next Friday (Feb. 22). The Migos constituent delivered a cinematic visual to go alongside the candid track.
The Aisultan-directed video features Set opening up and giving fans a serious look into the experiences that have molded him into the person he is from over the years. The 27-year-old touches on growing up without a father, still grieving the loss of his grandmother, seeing others around him getting locked up, and more. He even re-enacts the harrowing crash that left him lucky to be found alive inside his crunched Dodge Challenger.
Cardi B also showed support for Kulture’s dad by posting the video to her Instagram. “RED ROOM OUT NOW! Love the video and the creativity @offsetyrn. I cant wait till the album out is such a beautiful piece and I’m soo proud of you ! I always told you your life is such a wild story,” she wrote.
Offset detailed what fans can expect when his solo album arrives Feb. 22. in a previous interview. “I’m talking about relevant situations that have occurred over the last 18 or 24 months, like me being in the crash, my kids, my family time and me being married,” he told Billboard. “There’s different parts of my life. The ups and downs of being in music, the feeling of people doubting me and being the underdog to becoming the big dog.”
