After teasing images from the video alongside the debut of his new golden blonde look, Wizkid has finally released visuals for “Come Closer” his latest single featuring OVO boss, Drake. The video for “Come Closer” shares the same lush chrome aesthetic of Drake’s “Hotline Bling”, only with cooler graphics and black women in African prints and tribal body paint.
Drake is decidedly absent from the video, but that possibility already loomed since Wizkid also failed to similarly get screen time on the long-form Views short film where the video for “One Dance” featured last year. Ever since Drake publicly declared the Weeknd as the real Starboy, whispers of beef between the pair began and his absence from the “Come Closer” video further stokes the fire of the rumor.
“Come Closer” is expected to be part of a long material roll-out that would lead to the eventual release of Wizkid’s highly anticipated third studio album.
