On Wednesday afternoon, the artists released the official music video for “Love You Better,” which was heavily inspired by Biggie’s 1995 “One More Chance” visual. The video begins with DJ Khaled attempting to control a rowdy crowd outside a Brooklyn house party. His efforts seem pointless at first, but then Combs and Brown eventually pull up to the function, causing the mob to part like the red sea. From there, we see Combs and Brown living it up among their fellow partygoers.
“I have always been inspired by the iconic Bad Boy music of the '90s, and Notorious B.I.G. has been a heavy influence in my musical career since I realized I wanted to continue the legacy of such a remarkable era in hip-hop,” Combs told Billboard about the video. “It is an honor to pay homage to his iconic ‘One More Chance’ music video alongside my friend and collaborator Chris Brown as we were waiting for this very moment to bring the video to light. ‘One More Chance’ is one of my favorite videos and its amazing to have ‘Love You Better’ bring back the energy and essence of the video for the culture.”
