Born teams up with Quavo for his latest music video to “Hot Topic.”
Boston rapper Born ditches the colder temperatures of his hometown for the tropical paradise of the Dominican Republic for his new single and video, “Hot Topic,” featuring Quavo.
The island-themed track finds Born (of famed Boston duo G. Dot & Born) continuing to play to his strengths, particularly his ability to craft bangers of all types. With “Hot Topic,” he’s a bit more on the low-key and chilled-out tip. Born embraces that relaxed vibe while sharing vocal duties with Quavo, who again proves he is the reigning king of the ad-lib game. With Dun Deal behind the beat this beat is fresh and catches that wavy island vibe.
In the video for “Hot Topic,” the two are just as natural on screen as they are in the studio. With director Starlyn Javier capturing their exploits, Born and Quavo dive headfirst into extravagance during their time spent in the DR. This includes making their way through the tropical scenery, hanging with an abundance of attractive women (they being the song’s actual topic), and ballin’ out in a crazy-beautiful mansion.
“Hot Topic” is now available through all major digital retailers for stream and download, via EMPIRE Distribution. Be sure to peep Born’s most recent project, last year’s Born Flexin’ mixtape, which has amassed over half a million combined streams on SoundCloud.
