2 Chainz and Ariana Grande Show That They Know How to Party in Video for “Rule the World”

2 Chainz Ariana Grande Feature 2Rapper 2 Chainz just dropped the official music video for his song “Rule the World” featuring pop singer Ariana Grande. In the video, the two artists show that they really do know how party at a swanky, retro-feeling club.

Not long ago, 2 Chainz was featured on a remix version of Ariana‘s “7 Rings.” 2 Chainz’s feature on that remix came after the two broke the ice with a conversation over allegations that Ariana’s video for “7 Rings” may have borrowed a little too heavily from the visuals in some of 2 Chainz’s own videos.

But at the meeting, 2 Chainz and Ariana – who is reportedly a big 2 Chainz fan – seem to have genuinely hit it off and the two began discussing ways that they could work together. Apparently, they decided to jump right in by swapping features on two singles and now even doing a video together.

 

“Rule the World” is a track off of 2 Chainz‘s recently-released album Rap or Go to the League. You can watch the full video below. Continue Reading →

Ariana Grande Releases “7 Rings” Remix Featuring 2 Chainz

Ariana Grande 2 ChainzAriana Grande released a surprise remix of “7 Rings,” the third single from her upcoming album Thank U, Next. The unexpected remix features extensive verses by Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz.

While it is not yet known how the collab came together, many on social media noted the similarities between Ariana’s official music video for “7 Rings” and 2 Chainz’ “Door Swangin” trap house video. 2 Chainz also seemed to have seen those similarities, but maybe he ultimately took those similarities as complimentary, unlike some other rap artists who felt that “7 Rings” was just plain derivative of their work.

On the other hand, it is also possible that 2 Chainz’s inclusion on the track was a way for Ariana or her team to smooth things over with the rapper.

Either way, you can check out Ariana’s latest remix below.   Continue Reading →

“You’re a Thief:” Growing List of Rappers Are Not Happy With Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings”

Ariana Grande 7 Rings ControversyAriana Grande’s first trap-inspired song, “7 Rings,” just debuted today at No. 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart after spending much of the weekend at No.1 on iTunes’ Worldwide charts and Spotify’s streaming chart. However, a growing number of rappers and their fans are calling Ariana out for what they say are elements in the new track that seem derivative of their own music and video offerings.

The first to suggest that “7 Rings” might be derivative was rapper Princess Nokia, who posted a video of herself listening to “7 Rings” and then her own single “Mine.” In the video, the rapper reacted to some similarities in sound and lyrics. “Does that sound familiar to you?,” Princess Nokia asks in the video. “‘Cause that sound really familiar to me. Oh my God!”

The second rapper to lay into Ariana over “7 Rings” was Continue Reading →

Biebz In The Trap? 2 Chainz Hints At A Possible Justin Bieber Collaboration

Biebz In The Trap? 2 Chainz Hints At A Possible Justin Bieber Collaboration FEATUREJustin Bieber may be taking a sharp detour from his trademark pop sound. After he made an appearance on Justin Bieber’s new Instagram account, rapper 2 Chainz shared a pic of himself and Justin on his own account. In the caption, he teased his followers with questions about a possible musical collaboration with the Grammy nominee.

“New music on the way???” 2 Chainz asked. “Take JB to the trap???” Justin had two successful collaborations in 2016. His songs with Major Lazer and DJ Snake were both hits, begging the question if a track with 2 Chainz could be as popular? 2 Chainz’s followers seemed divided over whether or no he should team up with Justin.

Check out 2 Chainz’s Instagram post below.
