Watch: Rae Sremmurd - Come Get Her
From line-dancin' to pole-dancin' - Swae and Slim get some cowgirls going in their latest video.
Rae Sremmurd's debut album, Sremmlife, has given us a massive amount of big juans, since its release in January! No Flex Zone, No Type, Throw Sum Mo and This Could Be Us...all bona-fide, played-out club jams, which is actually so big when we're talking about a debut. And now the hype-train kicks off for the next single - Come Get Her. Come Get Her's a kind of 'we can't help it/can you blame us?!' track regarding the boys' natural tendency to incite ratchet behaviour in women wherever they go: "Somebody come tip her, she's dancin' like a stripper / Somebody come get her, she's feelin' all the liquor."
The video, that came out today, is all about living the "Sremmlife" philosophy - which is basically just being able to go zero to 100... real quick. The binge-watching I've done of TV show Nashville lately has really heightened my interest in the country music scene, so I couldn't be more thrilled that my fave rap rats Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy have decided to stage a culture-clash of sorts in their video clip for Come Get Her, setting it in a country music saloon - as opposed to the strip club I was expecting. That said, by the clip's end, it's pretty hard to tell the difference...
The clip starts with the saloon owner trying to book a country singer named 'Ray Shumar' - instead, Mississipi's finest twin talents, Rae Sremmurd, show up, and mayhem breaks loose - the barn dance gets quickly ditched for some more raunchy behaviour, as the girls in the crowd start riding mechanical bulls and dirty dancing, and the boys start throwing out some of their famous 'hunnid dollar bills'. The owner gets on the blower to the booking agent, mad as a cut snake "Bobby, you told me Rae Shumar was coming, ain't none of these boys Rae Shumar! I don't know who they are, Shammer, Dammer, Rammer! It ain't gonna work for me!" and tries to throw Slim and Swae out but he's quickly outvoted by a hundred gyrating women, and a few silver-haired cowboys all getting swaggy. There's horses, there's baby pigs, there's boots, there's riding crops...just watch.
Then, watch them in real life as they hit the ListenOut Festival, partying it up Sremm-style at dates across the country, tickets still onsale here.
