Wale’s summer single, “My PYT,” borrows from Michael Jackson’s “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)” for its chorus, so it’s only fitting that he paid homage with the music video, too.
And the most obvious way to do that? A moonwalk, of course.
Not half-bad right?
Besides the dancing, the Colin Tilley–directed visuals are a colorful explosion, as Folarin and his costar Sam Sneak party in the sun, by the pool, and in a not-so-small home.
One other element of note: There’s no lyrical change in the first verse, where he raps, “See I’m quite different / A James Bond n***a with a Saint Laurent fetish / And thank god I never had a baby mother, either.”
The reason that’s worth pointing out (not that a change was at all likely), is because, as of this weekend, Wale does, in fact, have a baby mother. But he seems to be thanking god that he does, and loving all that’s come with fatherhood so far.
Congrats to the new parents. Let’s all moonwalk to celebrate.
