Rae Sremmurd have released a vampiresque music video for their "CLOSE" featuring Travis Scott. Check it out above.
Over a dark and aggressive beat, the three MCs spit verses about not wanting to get too close. After the intro, Travis Scott takes over with his smooth, autotuned voice and wordplay. In the chorus, Swae Lee alludes to a dysfunctional relationship with his eerie vocals begging, "I mean, seriously, can I breathe?" Slim Jxmmi switches up the style for the last verse, rapping aggressively, "You know I'm a dog and I can't control it / Wanna settle someday but not at the moment."
The music video, directed by Mike Piscitelli, is like a mini-movie. It is a chill night outside a convenience store with Scott in a vintage Cadillac while Jxmmi picks up some beers. Things quickly take a turn when Travis and Swae Lee are unexpectedly attacked. The intense mood is emphasized by the neon lights in the store window. Don't get too close to these guys the next time there is a full moon!
“CLOSE” is the third single from Rae Sremmurd’s upcoming album, SremmLife3, which does not have a set release date.
