Tory Lanez Names Best Music Video
Earlier in the week, TL shared his confidence in the newly released “SKAT” video. Without second-guessing, Lanez credited himself for putting out the best visual of 2021. The crown is up for debate as everyone from DJ Khaled and Nicki Minaj to Cardi B and Migos – plus Megan Thee Stallion – have all put out huge music videos over the past few months.
“SKAT FEAT. @DABABY IS OUT NOW !!!!!! 🍾🔥🍾🔥🤯🔥🍾🔥🤯 LINK IN BIO … THIS IS THE VIDEO OF THE YEAR … Thanks @christhedirector”
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.
