Fivio Foreign, a rap music artist from New York, shared the music video for his latest single, “City of Gods.” The black and white music video also features Kanye West and Alicia Keys. The black and white visuals contain a montage of the three artists performing their song.
More About the Music Video
The hit single is a part of the upcoming debut album of Fivio Foreign. The album is titled B.I.B.L.E., in which Kanye West plays the role of an executive producer. “City of Gods” is not the first collaboration between Kanye West and Fivio Foreign. In West’s album “Donda,” Fivio contributed a verse to the song “Off the Grid.”
The hint of the music video in the making was dropped by both Fivio and Alicia Keys on their respective Instagram accounts. They shared different pictures of the trio in all-black outfits. Alicia Keys used the hashtag “BlackFutureMonth” with her post.
The track is opened in full braggadocio mode by the confident Fivio. He pays homage to Pop Smoke, a drill hitmaker who is quite close to Fivio. Keys is seen interpolating the chorus of The Chainsmokers’ “New York City.”
Fivio does not fail to flaunt his influence through the track. Even though he is the ultimate star of the track, Kanye West’s verse can’t be ignored. The standout verse addresses the social media meltdowns and public feuds of the rapper.
The music video pays tribute to late rap artist Tahjay Dobson aka T Dott. Dobson, an affiliate of Fivio and Pop Smoke, was shot dead in front of his Brooklyn home. According to music updates, the 22-year old artist signed a deal with Million Dollar Music only a day prior to his death.
