Ant Clemons just released brand new visuals for his track “Aladdin.” The music video is rendered in the style of retro 8-bit fighting games from the ’80s, showing miniature depictions of Clemons and Pharrell going through a series of obstacles and stages to rescue a kidnapped lady. It’s the latest set of visuals off Clemons’ EP HAPPY 2 BE HERE, which was released at the beginning of the month.
Clocking in at a little under the three-minute mark, the single is the fourth track off HAPPY 2 BE HERE and features Pharrell with a short verse alongside a few adlibs. Produced by The Stereotypes, the song is filled with a lush arrangement of vibrant synth chords that mirror the style of retro video games, complemented by crisp drums and smooth vocals. Clemons kicks off the first verse, penning lines like “Come and ride me, I’m Aladdin/Livin’ life, livin’ lavish,” while Pharrell comes through with the second verse with some notable quotes: “Basically a couple mill’ statue, I don’t drive / Three new high rise in Toronto skies” and “F*ck frozen water ’cause, uh, this Richard Mille set is fire/Transparent, still a couple mill’ tryna hide.” To match the lyrical content of the song, the music video shows one cut of Clemons as a genie amidst various Arabian architectures in the background.
