AceShowbiz - Following the release of their collaborative track "Close", Rae Sremmurd and Travis Scott (II) treated fans to a music video for the track on Wednesday, April 25. Directed by Mike Piscitelli, the visuals features a surprising twist midway through.
The clip starts with Travis waiting in a car outside a liquor store as he raps his verse. Swae Lee shows up next, sporting a sparkly chrome jacket and a taupe fringed vest as he walks with a beautiful lady around the store's parking lot. Later on, he's lured to an alley by the lady. Slim Jimmy makes his first appearance inside the store, buying a beer.
Not too long after, the video takes a dark turn when Swae and Travis realize that their love interests are vampires who quickly turn the boys into their kind. Slim, meanwhile, is attacked when he gets out of the store. "It's not my fault that I don't wanna end up screwed/ And everything I'm tryna say, you beat me to it/ And all the ups and all the downs, we have been through it," Swae rhymes.
"Close" is the third single off the hip-hop duo's forthcoming album "SremmLife 3", following Pharrell Williams-assisted track "Chanel" and "Powerglide" featuring Juicy J. In an interview with Zane Lowe of Beats 1, Slim described the third single as something that gives listeners "an 80s vibe."
"It's the year of the year. It's really the year of the year. We are coming through with mad hits," he added. "30 Roc, he been going dumb for a long time. Mike WiLL been going dumb for a long time. Ear Drummers is just like crazy."
"SremmLife 3", which will include Slim and Swae's solo LPs as well as a joint album, will be released on April 27. In support of the album, the Atlanta-based group will embark on a North America tour alongside Donald Glover.
