Things get virtual in Steve Aoki and Yellow Claw‘s new visual for “Lit,” which features assistance from Gucci Mane and T-Pain. In the clip, the artists exist in an all white palace, which also features belly dancers, fire-breathers and more…if fans can recall, this looks to be the same place where Aoki “filmed” previous clips for “Night Call” and “Without You.”
Aoki also explained how the collaboration came together (source):
T-Pain was in Vegas and I was FaceTiming him until he woke up and I got him to come over my house and jump in my pool, it’s kind of initiation… After we were having fun, I played him the beat and he’s wildin’ out. I got him in the booth and gave him an idea of the songs I’m going for. I kept singing ‘All I do is win’ over and over again and then he came up with this hook, T-Pain style. He sings a Queen line and I’m like, we’re never going to get this cleared. But he got it cleared, it was fucking crazy. Then we said we need to get Gucci on this, it will be sick. I sent it over to Gucci’s camp and he loved it and he did his thing and then Yellow Claw touched it up.
