Tyler The Creator Returns with Explosive New Single and Video "Who Dat Boy" feat. A$AP Rocky
Another audiovisual bomb from Odd Future’s figurehead
With the sheer breadth of upcoming TV projects from Tyler The Creator — Adult Swim scooping Gold Media’s animated series The Jellies and VICELAND’s acquiring his new show Nuts + Bolts — it could be a little too easy to forget that it’s been a few years since T dropped a new song on us. Sure, there have been features (Frank Ocean’s “Biking” and Matt Martians’ “Callin’ On Me”) and even a loose, somewhat spiteful remix (the unfuckwitable flip of ZAYN’s “Pillow Talk,”) but as far as entirely new non-guest-work is concerned, it’s been no beans from Tyler.
Today, however, he returns to the world of music with the explosive new single “Who Dat Boy” and its accompanying video, featuring Tyler blowing his face off mid-lab-experiment and entrusting A$AP Rocky with the patch-up job. The video closes on a brighter note both visually and musically, teasing a borderline Motown cut against a vibrant floral backdrop with multiple Tylers sharing the screen.
Watch Tyler The Creator and A$AP Rocky in the new video for “Who Dat Boy” below and hold tight for more in the weeks ahead. It could be the case that a new album is closer to fruition than we once thought.
