As expected, there's a certain frigid confidence to Asian Doll's new video for "Rock Out."
The video for the Bank Roll Got It-produced So Icy Princess single was shot in Atlanta, Georgia. Up top, you can catch the Alpha Male Visuals-directed video.
"It was important for me to make a video for 'Rock Out' because I've never made a record with that type of West Coast vibe before," Asian Doll told Complex. "I wanted to do something for my West Coast fans. The concept for the video was inspired by Hustle & Flow, but more funny. We wanted to make the fans laugh like they were watching a short comedy film. I'm showing everybody my acting side and creative side."
With 2018 wrapping up soon, Asian Doll is planning her 2019. "My biggest goals for 2019 are to go gold and platinum. I want to sell records and chart. I also want to have big performances at the BET and MTV Awards. Basically, I want to take everything up a notch."
In an Instagram clip Wednesday, Asian Doll teased a new song tentatively titled "Never Cared" using the iPhone's handy screen-recording capabilities. So Icy Princess just dropped back in October via 1017/Alamo/EMPIRE and features Lil Yachty, YBN Nahmir, and—of course—Gucci Mane. The latter appears on the aptly named "1017" alongside Yung Mal.
In an interview with Billboard earlier this year, Asian Doll elaborated on the similarities between her and Guwop's in-studio work ethic. "Gucci would even be at the studio before me," she said. "When it's time to hit the studio and he gives us a time to come, he'll be there before me every single time. That's just how he is." Doll added that, with 1017, there were definite "family vibes" right from the start. "As I keep going, we're all getting to know each other more and the vibe keeps getting stronger," she said.
