Chicago and Hip-Hop legend Twista first premiered his latest smooth new hit single, Next To You, which features fellow Chicago native Jeremih on the hook, exactly a month ago yesterday. So to commerate the feel-good mid-tempo ladies jam being out a month yesterday, the two Chicago natives premiered yesterday through The FADER, the new feel-good PhillyFlyBoy-directed video for the record.
It maybe finally starting to get to that cold almost unbearable weather in the CHI now, but the Chicago tongue twister keeps the summer vibes alive in the new visual, in which he playfully plays off the Friday movie for which the Rose Royce’s classic, I Wanna Get Next To You is sampled and interloped into this record. Twista playing the role of Ice Cube’s classic character Craig, while T’s longtime partner in-rhyme, B-Hype, appropriately plays the role of his partner in crime Smokey. As the two recreate the classic scene of Smokey and Craig chilling on the porch, while a fine woman passes by that they go, “DAMNNN” at.
Jeremih sings the mesmorizing hook with the Chicago skyline behind him and Twista later takes the woman out to the landmark old-schol Santa Monica diner, Rae’s. Watch and catch them feel-good vibes, as everything else play out in the old-school nostalgic throwback video below.
