In the Kid Art-directed clip, Wyclef and Young Thug are attending a swimwear-themed fashion show beach side when Wyclef gets a phone call from Sweetest Girl (a reference to 2007’s “Sweetest Girl (Dollar Bill)”). It turns out, he’s a secret agent and his mission is to save Young Thug’s real life fiancée Jerrika Karlae from an assassin. Maneuverings with a poisoned cocktail and a cheeky fight scene later ensues.
The clip cuts between the beach footage and performance shots featuring Wyclef and Young Thug playing and singing in a Mad Max-styled sandstorm. Despite the video’s distressing themes, the song has a romantic, danceable sway. “And I swear/ Ain’t nobody breaking us up/ I’m a stay with you forever, girl,” Wyclef sings. “And I swear/ Know that you were here from the start/ You ain’t going nowhere.”
“Hey, honeymoon/ Sprinking flowers over you,” Young Thug sings on his verse. “Stand on the couch, baby, I’m wildin’ over you/ Take everything, bae, I’m a coward over you.”
The pair recently teamed up for Young Thug’s “Kanye West” and “Elton.” Wyclef Jean’s Carnival III: Road to Clefication is expected to be released next summer to mark the 20th anniversary of his debut album, The Carnival.
