Jacquees ft. Rich Homie Quan “Come Thru” Video
Bonus points if you can name the original sample
Even if Drake and Lil Wayne wanted to split from Cash Money team, one of the label’s newer signees is a promising foundation to build the next generation of their artists with. The Atlanta singer Jacquees has gone on record that his first and last album will be put out under Birdman’s label. And after listening to his Mood project, it seems like a good move for Birdman and company. To help promote his nationwide tour, he releases the video for “Come Thru,” which previously had a Candy Crush-themed lyric video.
The video, directed by BPace Productions and Jacquees himself, centers around a crazy house party hosted by the man of the hour. To add some extra flair, they’ve also added animations to highlight some details, like an extra-thick girl here or a larger-than-life rim on RHQ’s car over there. The video also sticks to the motif of candy, as the ladies in Quan’s car are spray-painted like oompa loompas. This extends from Jacquees’ lines about being a girl’s Willy Wonka, as well as the title of the song that “Come Thru” samples–Cameo’s “Candy.” You’ll also spot ForteBowie in the cut in the beginning, who executive produced Mood.
