TDE's ScHoolboy Q has dropped a new visual for his single, "Overtime" off his new album Blank Face.
The video shows ScHoolboy Q, Miguel and Justine Skye at various locations from a playground full of bikini-clad barbers to a mountain range. ScHoolboy Q is indulging himself on voluptuous women, Miguel is enjoying the scenic view and Justine Skye is lamenting on a lover who thinks that she is a "tease." The theme of the video and song is pretty straightforward regarding the lyrics of the song.
Schoolboy Q revealed that the song almost didn't make the album in a feature on Rolling Stone:
After Q played "Overtime," a collaboration with a pair of R&B singers — Miguel and Justine Skye — that appears near the end of Blank Face, he appeared to disavow the track as commercial fodder. "You always got that song you gotta give up for the label," he noted. "Sometimes the label knows what they're talking about." He likened "Overtime" to "Studio," a Top 40 hit from his last album the featured a honeyed chorus from BJ the Chicago Kid.
Speaking on the phone the next day, Q returns to his statement and recants. "I said something at the listening party and people got it all wrong," he asserts. "A label can't make me put nothing on the album. I said the Miguel record that I got is like 'Studio;' I didn't actually mean it in that way. I said the label forced me to put it on; I didn't mean it that way."
Despite the tension around "Studio," Oxymoron's commercial prospects were buoyed by its inclusion. Though Q is wary of the comparison, a similar thing appears to have occurred with "Overtime." "They let me do a whole album how I wanted top to bottom; they just asked for one song," Q says. "It's a dope song — I wrote the song, I just thought it didn't fit my album. But like I said, I also didn't want 'Studio' on my album. I also didn't want 'Man Of The Year' to be one of my singles. Both of 'em went Platinum." He concludes on a note of uncertainty: "I don't know every fucking thing."
