Cardi B And Offsets Music Video For “Clout” Is A Tribute To Earl Black Girl Groups Like Destiny’s Child
Cardi B and Offset get really steamy in their music video for “Clout.”
The visual, directed by Daniel Russell, dropped on Wednesday, and features a lot of twerking, tongue and the color yellow.
Decked in all black, Offset plays a yellow piano before flexing in front of funhouse mirrors. Cardi joins her husband halfway through the song, performing a headstand while Offset holds her feet apart, sitting in a pool of lemons and later giving the father of their daughter, Kulture, a sultry lap dance.
The song, which appears on the Migos rapper’s solo LP Father of 4, is the couple’s fourth together and the latest after “Who Want the Smoke?”
The on-again, off-again couple, which reconciled after a brief split in December, seem to be on happier terms. Over the weekend, Cardi, who surprised Coachella guests when she joined Ozuna and Selena Gomez for a performance of “Taki Taki” during DJ Snake’s set, also joined Offset at #REVOLVEFestival, where the pair gave a PDA-filled show.
The Dominican-Trinidadian rapper, whose latest song “Please Me” features Bruno Mars, will soon be making her Hollywood debut in the Jennifer Lopez-executive produced and starring film, “Hustlers.”
Still, the best part of Cardi B and Offsets video is all in the visuals.
As some fans have pointed out, the entire thing has a pretty intense 90s/00s vibe.
There’s SO much love for Janet in this!
And a whole heck of a lot of Lil Kim love.
And TBH no one knows who did it better?
Like look at those mirrors in the background.
Classic 90s music video trait.
It’s basically just like the ones in this 702 video!
Gotta love that Cardi took her love to this level.
