Pop Smoke Receives Royal Tribute in ‘Demeanor’ Video With Dua Lipa

Track is featured on rapper’s second posthumous album Faith

Pop Smoke receives a Baroque-style tribute in the new video for “Demeanor,” the late rapper’s posthumous single with Dua Lipa.

Set during a lavish banquet/party in a castle on a hilltop, the video portrays Pop Smoke both as the subject of a divine portrait on the wall — mimicking The Last Supper — and as a ghostly cloud seated at the head of the table. Dua Lipa appears later in the clip, dressed as Marie Antoinette and showing up in multiple places around the banquet hall, dancing and feasting on the table spread.

“Demeanor” is the latest single from Faith, the second posthumous Pop Smoke album, released earlier this month. It follows Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, released on July 3rd, 2020, with a deluxe version arriving on July 20th for what would have been the rapper’s 21st birthday. Pop Smoke was killed in a home invasion in Los Angeles in February 2020.

Last month, Dua Lipa debuted a new track, “Gully,” featured on the soundtrack to the upcoming film Gully. Her sophomore album Future Nostalgia was released in March 2020, and includes her hit singles “Don’t Start Now,” “Physical,” and “Levitating.” A remix album, Club Future Nostalgia, created with the Blessed Madonna, followed in August 2020.
