The Long Beach rapper and the former Disney star are reflected through glass windows while they are singing about broken hearts, loneliness, and pain in a filled-with-troubled-people town.
Snoop Lion, who was previously known as Snoop Dogg, drops the music video for "Ashtrays & Heartbreaks" featuring Miley Cyrus. Snoop is seen smoking in some part of the 4-minute video while Miley, with her red lips and blond hair, looks refreshing in a white baggy outfit.
Snoop and Miley don't really appear in the clip. Instead, their figures are reflected through glass windows and a puddle when singing about love and loss in a town where troubled people move in slow motion. Through the video, Snoop wants to illustrate how everyone copes with their own issues.
"Tomorrow when you wake up and realize life ain't fair/ Throw it back, and make the whole world disappear/ You never miss what you had until it's gone/ When it's right, something always will go wrong," Snoop takes the second verse.
"Ashtrays and heartbreaks/ I lost some, let's toast to one/ So put 'em high, lets reminisce/ You're gone but you're never missed/ Ashtrays and heartbreaks/ I lost some, let's toast to one/ So raise a glass to the memories/ Set 'em free and fill up all those ashtrays/ Fill up all those ashtrays," Miley follows.
The video is directed by P.R. Brown, who worked with the likes of Carrie Underwood, My Chemical Romance, John Mayer, Alicia Keys, Slipknot and will.i.am.
"Ashtrays & Heartbreaks" is featured on Snoop Lion's latest album, "Reincarnated" and was produced by Major Lazer, Ariel Rechtshaid and Dre Skull.
