ScHoolboy Q's hypnotic new collab with Travis Scott, "CHopstix," is something you'd probably expect to hear in a nightclub or a strip club. But for the track's official video, released on Wednesday (April 10), Q subverted expectations by taking the opposite approach and getting sophisticated as hell.
The black-and-white, Nabil-directed vid opens on Q getting his shoes shined inside an ornate theater, sporting a P.T. Barnum-esque tuxedo. When he takes the stage in front of an equally formal crowd, Scott's already there, wearing a coat with tails and conducting an orchestra alongside a choir and a troupe of ballet dancers. You've never seen Q and Scott put on a show this tame — it might be the only time someone in a top hat has ever said, "fuck so good, that's talent" — and you probably never will again. Even more exciting, you get to hear what the track sounds like with some violins thrown in, which somehow works.
