A$AP Rocky has finally released his long-awaited new single ‘D.M.B.’ – watch the video, which features Rihanna, below.
Rihanna, who is expecting a child with Rocky, appears prominently in the five-minute video, which Rocky directed and executive produced for AWGE. ‘D.M.B.’ is an abbreviation for ‘Dat’s My Bitch.’
Rocky and Rihanna play ride-or-die characters in a devoted relationship despite their circumstances in the video, which is an ode to a classic love story.
The pair are living a ghetto fabulous lifestyle, toasting to the good life on an iron rail apartment balcony and then again in an expensive restaurant one minute; the next Rihanna is greeting Rocky, who is wearing a bespoke Eric Cantona Manchester United football shirt as he is released from prison on multiple occasions.
Lord Flacko, Skepta, Shlohmo, Hector Delgado, and Kelvin Krash produced the track, with additional production by D33J.
Watch the video for ‘D.M.B.’ below:
‘Testing,’ Rocky’s most recent solo studio album, was released in May 2018. So far this year, the New York rapper has worked with Nigo on the track ‘Arya’ (which appears on the latter’s ‘I Know Nigo!’) and $not on ‘Doja.’
Rocky was arrested last month at Los Angeles International Airport in connection with an alleged shooting in November 2021 in Los Angeles.
Alan Jackson, his attorney, confirmed to NBC News that his client had been arrested, and the rapper’s representatives did not respond further.
The rapper was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and later released on a $550,000 (£441,000) bond and ordered to appear in court on August 17. (via Variety).
