Both Teyana Taylor and A$AP Rocky are the epitome of what a millennial rapper coming out of Harlem should embody. Too cool for school, fashionable to a fault, and dominating whatever scene they step on. So imagine how the two operate when you put them on camera together to play love interests in Taylor’s latest Auntie Production: ‘Issues/Hold On’.
Continuing her reign as “Spike Tee,” this video, a soul-themed period piece, comes as Taylor’s fourth formal visual from her K.T.S.E. project released mid-2018. Crooning of love mixed with trust issues, Teyana Taylor and A$AP Rocky navigate through the music video as a married couple that deals with the ramifications of Rocky’s flirting. Lori Harvey, TT’s real-life BFF and hip-hop’s latest “it” girl, plays the cutie getting a little too friendly with Rocky. And with the 70’s vibes in full effect, we get to see how the couple holds on to their relationship amidst Teyana’s reaction!
The visual definitely gets a little sexy towards the end, but everything is tasteful. Not to mention the ending gives us a glimpse of A$AP’s stomach tattoo, which serves as a reminder that it’s all just a video!
Other cameo’s in the video include A$AP Ferg, Tyler the Creator, and Kristen Crawley.
