The video finds the pair getting ready at a hotel before hitting the stage for a live performance. Carlitta Durand, who provides additional vocals on the track, makes an appearance, too.
Little Brother released May the Lord Watch last year, the pair’s first release in almost 10 years. Shortly after its release, the duo explained how producer 9th Wonder intially agreed to be a part of the project, but then ended up not being on it.
“So, we start recording. Just to make a very long story short: we start recording and we get into it, and the beats he was sending just really weren’t speaking to us,” Phonte said. “And I’ll never go on record and say the beats were bad. It’s art. It’s subjective…I go to him and I have a conversation. And I say, ‘Look, man, I want us to bring other producers in on this project. He’s like, ‘Nah, I don’t wanna do that.’ And I’m just like, ‘OK.'”
“He didn’t want other producers on the album,” he added. “Then it became a thing of ‘Well when we tour, what if I just do the festival dates and [DJ] Flash do the regular dates?’ I was just like, ‘Dude, no.’ If we’re gonna do this, either you’re all the way in or all the way out. And if there’s any reason why you can’t do that or won’t, let’s talk about it. But this is the exact same problem we ran into 10 years ago when we became a duo.”
The duo has also said that more music is coming.
