The music video was chock-full of star power, having been directed by Roman Coppola and choreographed by Mandy Moore, who also lent her artistic vision to La La Land. It definitely hit home with a lot of viewers, especially those who were familiar with the original 1988 Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock hit song, “It Takes Two.” Lil Yachty and Carly definitely served up the heat!
Starting off in a Target store with fully packed checkout lanes, the red-and-white color scheme flashed as the dynamic duo sang their way through the ad spot. It featured all sorts of usual products, including emoji pillows, Mr. Clean products and the mascot Bullseye the dog! Carly even flaunted her spunky, short hair ‘do while showing off her undeniable vocal prowess!
Lil Yachty has plenty to smile about, since it was also his first time being nominated at the Grammy Awards for Best Rap/Sung Performance. At the star-studded event, he even showed off his edgy new rainbow grill, which continues to be a hot topic! The rapper lit up the stage tonight, performing his smash hit “Brocolli,” with D.R.A.M. He’s clearly on a roll these days!
