“We created a record that’s so real and so relatable,”Muni Long said of the collab, adding that she “can’t wait” to see how fans react to the song.
For Ty Dolla, the track stood as a chance to “combine all of our talents” into a single listening experience.
“OG Parker is one of the most talented producers in the game right now and Muni Long is killing the R&B scene,” he said.
The new track will appear on Parker’s upcoming Moments project, which is also slated to feature the previously released tracks “Rain Down” and “No Fuss.” Stream “Still Work” below via Spotify and Apple Music.
For the video, Parker enlisted the team at Reel Goats to visually interpret the timely song. Speaking with Complex, Parker revealed that the track started as “a joint we did with Chrishan,” with Parker ultimately deciding to keep the resulting song as a single for himself.
“I’ve been working with Ty for some years and recently got introduced to Muni Long through my brotha Scotti who engineers for her,” he said of how the trio came together for “Still Work.” Asked to detail the experience of shooting the track’s official video, Parker recalled what he described as an “amazing experience” in Los Angeles.
“It felt like a family reunion more than [a] video shoot,” he told Complex. “From the directors/production, Reel Goats, to Muni and Ty, to everyone on set, it was an overall good time and it was a plus to get an incredible video out of it. The video really helps bring the song to life.”
Talking about how the track came together, Muni Long said, “I re-connected with Ty via Twitter and set up a studio session to go work with him. He played me a few songs and I freestyled some verses. A year or so later I heard from OG Parkers team that he wanted to release the song as his single. Voila!”
