In the video for the track, which samples the Stylistics’ “People Make the World Go Round,” Ross struts around a mansion with an ocean view while detailing some of the more opulent moments from his life.
“Out in Cannes with Leonardo DiCaprio/ While out on bond, pray I go to trial rapido,” Ross says on the track. “Cameras flash, paparazzi laying in the grass/ Tom Brady my new nigga, you can tell ’em that.” Ty Dolla $ign contributes the “I Think She Like Me” chorus and attends the video’s steamy hot tub and costume parties.
After dropping Black Market and two mixtapes in 2015 – which followed two 2014 LPs (Hood Billionaire and Mastermind) – the usually prolific Ross took the year off from releasing albums in 2016, although he stayed active with a string of singles like “Buy Back the Block,” “Same Hoes” and “No U-Turns.”
In that time, the rapper jumped labels from Def Jam to Epic, which will release his upcoming LP. Other than the album’s title, not much is known about the forthcoming Rather You Than Me, although Ross did reveal that he recently had a recording session with Jay Z.
On Thursday, Ross tweeted of his “3 Kings” cohort, “Jay Z continue to elevate the culture creating and building brands while remaining true to the roots and in touch with his niggas.”
