On Friday, the 18th of December, Argentina took home the victory against France in the final of the 2022 World Cup. There may have been more than one reason why the South American team triumphed over the European team, but there was still plenty to be happy about, including Lil Baby releasing his latest music video for the occasion.
With the help of Budweiser, the Atlanta rapper Lil Baby delivered a video featuring a breathtaking action-packed clip highlighting FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association), along with his single, “The World Is Yours to Take.” This song also features a performance by Tears for Fears, an English pop band from the 1980s. “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” was their 1985 hit single, which Nas sampled in 2001 to create the track, which incorporates the sample into the whole arrangement. There is a video in which Baby raps, “I am my own greatest bet, I’m by far one of the hardest workers and the biggest believer in practice makes perfect.” No matter how much water you accumulate, just keep thirsty. It took a lot to get us here. We broke curses.”
The visuals for the video were created by Canadian-born filmmaker Director X, who sends Baby into FIFA World Cup stadiums throughout the clip. As the 28-year-old artist Lil Baby pauses in the music video to speak with Brazilian musician Papatinho and Argentine rapper Paulo Londra, the video portrays several scenes of their interactions. As part of the project, the “Drip Too Hard” hitmaker tried his hand at mingling with other international musicians, producers, and DJs from around the world. “ I am proud to share my official music video for my song ‘The World Is Yours To Take’ with you!
“With this video, Budweiser will be closing out the 2022 FIFA World Cup with a bang, and Baby is excited to play a key role in making history with this video,” Baby said in a statement released in conjunction with the release of the video. “We’re celebrating what it means to bring the world together as we work with Director X and the talented people from around the globe to bring people together to chase their dreams together, and we’re looking forward to continuing to work on this project,” he said.
