Lil Dicky is a legend. A few years ago he went insanely viral for his hilarious music video for “$ave Dat Money” where he asks rich people if he can use their homes for his music video. Then he did it again with “Pillow Talking” that had the rapper spend 700k of his own money. Once again last year he somehow replicated the same level of vitality again last year with his song + video “Freaky Friday” where he switched places with Chris Brown. He’s on pace for one mega viral video each year. Now the one for 2019 has arrived and it aims to go bigger than he’s ever done before.
His new song is called “Earth” and has almost the most collaborators ever on one song. Everyone from Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus to Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa to Leonardo DiCaprio and Kevin Hart appear on the action-packed song. As expected from Dicky, he went all out on both the song and video.
The video celebrates our planet Earth in the best way takes an animated turn in which the collaborators start popping up. Justin Bieber kicks things off as a baboon before Ariana comes in as a zebra and one by one each collaborator pops up in hilarious fashion. The video clocks in at over seven minutes with pixar level animation making a political statement about loving our planet.
The song was produced by Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat with additional vocals by: Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Halsey, Zac Brown, Brendon Urie, Hailee Steinfeld, Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Kevin Hart, Adam Levine, Shawn Mendes, Charlie Puth, SIA, Miley Cyrus, Lil Jon, Rita Ora, Miguel, Katy Perry, Lil Yachty, Ed Sheeran, Meghan Trainor, Joel Embiid, Tory Lanez, John Legend, Backstreet Boys, Bad Bunny, Psy, Kris Wu, and more.
This is absurd but also incredible. The song is an effort to save our planet – see more info on the website here. Enjoy!
