Rap crooner Tory Lanez and DaBaby aren’t just satisfied with their new “SKAT” single reaching the masses. Instead, the hip-hop duo have come through with their hilarious, jam-packed new music video premiere.
Tory Lanez + DaBaby Do The Most
The visual is much-more than jokes and crazy special effects. The music video is also a celebration of COVID-19 restrictions easing up and people becoming more social with summer around the corner.
From stolen police car joy rides to run-ins in the wild wild west, performing exorcisms, Michael Jackson “Thriller” reenactment dance scenes, and everything in between, Tory and DaBaby celebrate being back outside with a bang. The track comes after Lanez’ highly successful recent capsule PLAYBOY, which held the #1 position on Apple Music upon release and even jumped back to that position after the artist’s extremely creative global livestream event where he performed the project live.
Following days – and actually months – of promotion, Tory finally hit the green light on his new single. The record is a pure turn-up anthem and features Lanez setting the tone while Baby comes through with his signature hard-hitting lines. TL opens up the record talking about his money-making ability and iced-out accessories.
“Wrist so wet I might drown
B*tch, don’t talk, you goin’ downtown (Okay)
I done made 6 half for the whole week
Plug want a player then I’m goin’ O.T (Okay)
I just made 457 on Wok
I’ll hop in that Scat and I’m bendin’ your block (Okay)
N*gga wanna scrap, well, then, let it go rock
My lil’ n*gga got it, I bet he gon’ pop (Okay)
I can make 10 on face no fillin’, 6 dot like Krillin”
Chris Brown Can’t Wait
A few days ago, Lanez went to his Instagram page to officially announce the joint effort with himself and Baby arriving today. Tory credited quarantine goals practically ending and showed off the song’s cover art.
“…. F*CK IT .. OUTSIDE BACK OPEN ….TIME TO F*CK THE WORLD UP 🌍 ……#SKAT feat @dababy …… THIS MONDAY !!! …… PRE SAVE THE SONG NOW .. LINK IN BIO 🥶🥶🤬🤬🤯🤯 🔥🍾🔥🍾 #OneUmbrella2021 📽: @eye9five @mihailoandic”
R&B superstar Chris Brown hopped into the comments section and couldn’t hold back dropping a slew of digital flames to hype up the new tune.
Tory Lanez Previously Announces ‘SKAT’
In January 2021, Tory initially announced his “SKAT” anthem would arrive before summer. He also shared a snapshot presumably from the single’s music video featuring himself alongside DaBaby.
“CLEARLY MY 2021 IS GOING TO BE FIRE 🔥🍾🔥🍾🔥🍾 #SKAT ! Ft @dababy COMING SPRING 🔥🐐🐐 …. ALL UMBRELLAS DROP A ☂ IN THE COMMENTS . Love y’all ❤️ thank u for always supporting me . 🥺😎🙏🏾👏🏽 🎥: @christhedirector“
Days prior, Lanez’s ex-girlfriend and rap star Megan Thee Stallion ripped him for promoting the song. She also suggested the collaboration was dated.
“😂😂😂 nice try … That sh*t was old and not cleared. CRYBABY VIDEO dropping soon”
There’s No More Hate In His Heart
Lanez is leaving any past issues exactly in the past. The hip-hop singer has stepped up to assure concerned fans there’s zip-zero hatred or anger in his heart even after getting accused of shooting his ex-girlfriend Megan Thee Stallion and blasting her on records.
“I have 0 hatred in my heart …. hate is a weak emotion that I had to get over”
