Lil Yachty has returned with his latest single, “Oprah’s Bank Account,” enlisting Drake and DaBaby for guest verses and Oprah-inspired sit-down interviews in a nine-minute visual offering that’s part short film, part music video. Directed by Director X with the video’s treatment written by the rapper himself, “Oprah’s Bank Account” sees Yachty dress-up as the iconic talkshow host (named Boprah here) while interviewing Drake about how he opened up his LSC (light-skinned capabilities). The OVO rapper jokingly praises the Yachty for being at “the forefront of that movement of music that should be forgotten about.”

The song concept is pretty simple: Lil Yachty is chasing a girl who looks as good as Oprah’s bank account and wants to know if the love is real or not. Drake brags about making out with Madonna, hiding out in his new Toronto estate like Osama Bin Laden did in his cave and claims that he’s Canada’s Barack Obama. Meanwhile, DaBaby explains the meaning behind his “let’s goooo” ad lib and details why rappers really don’t need more than one hit to make a living these days.

“Oprah’s Bank Account” comes after Atlanta super-producer Zaytoven tapped Yachty for his A-Team project featuring rising Atlanta rap duo Lil Keed and Lil Gotit. Lil Boat also continued his stream of strong singles this year when he collaborated with Tadoe and Chief Keef for the infectious “Get It Bussin” and linked with Sada Baby for the trap anthem “SB5”.
