When Tyler, The Creator comes through with a new project, you can always count on him to give it his all. While the Grammy Award-winner isn’t moving on from his CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST era quite yet, he’s following up the 2021 release with The Estate Stale deluxe edition. It comes complete with eight new titles for fans. Along with several of those tracks, the Californian has been providing must-see visuals. The latest came on Tuesday (April 4) for “HOT WIND BLOWS,” in which he takes us on a picturesque trip to Switzerland.
Rather than directing this video himself, as he has with other recent arrivals, The Creator teamed up with Lazaro Rodriguez for the short and sweet project. As the song begins, we hear DJ Drama setting the scene while the 32-year-old mouths some of his words in front of the camera with a cheeky smile on his face. “Ladies and gentlemen, we just landed in Geneva, yeah, that’s in Switzerland,” the Generation Now founder informs listeners. “We on a yacht and a young lady just fed me French vanilla ice cream / We all got our toes out, too, call me when you get lost.”
Before long, Drama turns the mic over to Tyler, whose lyrical talents have only improved and matured through his many years in the game. “Out in Switzerland, travel with my bitch again, we kissin’, dawg / I love when she let me rub her like Michelin,” he spits in the middle of the first verse. “A hundred grand to sleep on the bird, the wings are whistlin’ like— / Man, they ain’t listenin’.”
