Catch the new video, which opens on a shot from Baby's first trip to Paris and stars Jayda Cheaves, up top. Daps directed. As Baby explained when sharing the video Wednesday, he specifically selected Paris as the "Close Friends" location because he wanted to show off a city that "represents love and romance." The Turbo-produced track appears on Baby and Gunna's' 2018 collab project Drip Harder, which dropped back in October to immediate acclaim.
Ahead of something called Valentine's Day, Baby is holding a contest for women in which they'll be treated to dinner with a friend at Baby-curated restaurants in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, and New York. One winner will be selected from each city Wednesday night, with more details to follow. Entry information is available here.
Starting March 13 at Houston’s Revention Music Center, Baby will be on the road with his New Generation Tour featuring Blueface, City Girls, Jordan Hollywood, Rylo Rodriguez, 42 Dugg, and Marlo.
Gunna, meanwhile, is currently readying his Drip or Drown sequel. Monday night, he appeared alongside Metro Boomin for a Tonight Show performance of "Space Cadet" that prominently featured a call for the release of 21 Savage. That same day, he shared new Drip or Drown 2 single "Speed It Up." Like "Close Friends," the track boasts production from Turbo.
"I executive produced the album," Turbo previously told Complex of his Drip Harder role. "From the time that they started even talking about it—before it was known to the public—I was there through the whole process."
