Even with the current coronavirus quarantines restricting everyday life, Rich Brian is still managing to have some fun with his friends. For his latest “BALI” music video with Guapdad 4000, Brian has taken to the skies, delivering some of his closest friends and collaborators gifts via drone.
Gift recipients and cameos included Cuco, Buddy, Kenny Beats, Denzel Curry, Thundercat and Lil Yachty. Brian also donated 125 meals to first responders working to combat the coronavirus outbreak at a local hospital.
The song also showcases the 88rising artist’s ability to add melodies and his continued experimentation with singing. “I think singing more these days is definitely going to give me more creative freedom,” Rich Brian told HYPEBEAST during the track’s premiere. “A long time ago, I would make a song and force myself to sing a certain way because I felt like that was what the people wanted, and because that’s how people kind of know me as. Every time I get a little too sing-y, I’d always get kind of shy and be like, “Okay, this is too different sounding. It’s not me enough,” and that’s a mindset I had to let go of because, and I didn’t realize this, it was holding me back a lot creatively.”
Following the release of his latest single, Rich Brian also shared his HYPEBEAST Self-Isolation Playlist. Watch the music video above.
