NEW VIDEO: Lil Baby – Close Friends – Directed by. DAPS
Drip Harder and Street Gossip were two big highlights of the rappers 2018 , racking up a lot of stream and radio plays these were two projects that cemented his position in the game a little bit more. Last week he took us back to his solo album ‘Street Gossip’ when he dropped the visual for his hit ‘Global’ as he roamed the streets of Nigeria, the UK and various other locations for the clip. Just a week later and the rapper decides to gift us with another music video, this time from his joint project with fellow rising ATL star Gunna. The ‘Close Friends’ video drops just in time for Valentines Day, despite the track coming from the joint album it is actually a solo single from Baby.
Lil Baby recruits the famous director DAPS who always seems to be directing a lot of videos for popping artists, we have even saw him branch out to work with some UK artists. In the video we see the ATL star go through the different stages of a romantic relationship, the arguments, the love and the more relaxed times. The music video was shot in Paris which is indicated by the hotel it was shot at and the Eiffel Tower appears a few times during the clip. This visual comes a month before Baby hits the road for his New Generation Tour with Blueface, The City Girls, Jordan Hollywood, Rylo Rodriquez and more. You can catch the rapper and friends on the tour that kick-starts in Houston on March 13th
