Tyler, The Creator's unconventional approach pays dividends on "Earfquake."


Tyler, the Creator has indubitably ensured his Playboi Carti collaboration "Earfquake," the praise it deserves by enlisting Tracee Ellis Ross in the accompanying music video. Before a retrofitted Tyler is given the chance to wow an imaginary audience with a pale blue outfit and a blonde wig, Tracee Ellis Ross, in her portrayal of a short circuit TV host, gets us riled up with a mild form of discussion.

Once that's over with, Tyler gets to relive his childhood fancy with a microphone for a brush of vice versa. Never one to let a video concept grow stale for more than a minute at a time, Tyler makes way for Playboi Carti's appearance as a "firefighter" by setting the stage ablaze. Carti frantically threatens to call his lawyer and "his plug" if conditions don't ameliorate on the set.

Ironically, is the only listed individual with the "power" to make things better within those quarters. Although they don't make an appearance in the video itself, Dev Hynes of Blood Orange, and Charlie Wilson of The Gap Band lend a hand at the finished product, namely on the chorus and the bridge of the song. Enjoy!

Quotable Lyrics:

I'm with Tyler, yuh 
He ride like the car 
And she wicked 
Like Woah Vicky.

- Playboy Carti
