[artist id="2000082"]Rick Ross[/artist] wanted to get a little exotic for his next video and decided a trip to South America was in order.
“Come with the boss. Medellin, Colombia — we got friends over there,” Ross said about the backdrop of his latest video, “All I Really Want.” “I feel like me doing my island hopping … all the other little islands — to Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico — they beautiful spots. The Colombian women are beautiful women — that most definitely is what I wanted to capture. I wanted to capture a foreign setting, beautiful women … just really break down some of the more simple things. I want to capture some of the simple beautiful things in the setting in the country. It’s not about malls and the cars — I want to be more intimate about that person or that individual.”
Ross also wanted the exotic clip to live up to
[artist id="1133"]Snoop Dogg’s[/artist] “Beautiful” video, which was shot in Brazil.
“Most definitely — when I saw that video, I sat back like, ‘Wow, this is art!’ ” Rick marveled. “We finnin’ to do that times five. Shout-out to Snoop Dogg and [artist id="1242768"]Pharrell[/artist] for the inspiration.”
“All I Really Want” features The-Dream and was produced by Tricky Stewart. Other producers on Ross’ album include DJ Toomp and the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, and the LP also contains contributions from
[artist id="510062"]Lil Wayne[/artist] (who recently teamed up with Ross for a 50 Cent dis track), Gunplay, [artist id="2002414"]Ne-Yo[/artist],
