Diddy recently dropped a video featuring Teyana Taylor for “Closer To God,” a song from The Love Album: Off The Grid, his first album in seventeen years.
The video, directed by Taylor, begins with a shot of several islands floating in the sky, draped with chrome elements. It then shows Diddy walking around in a dry desert, searching for Taylor.
“I’ll be ya future baby mama, teacher, lover, friend/ While I’m all of the above, you know I can’t pretend/ I’ll be your lioness, I’ll post up in your den/ I, sing it, bae/ Oh-oh, oh, I/ I get closer to God when I’m with you,” Taylor sings.
“Teyana is not just an incredible artist, she’s my sister,” Diddy said in a statement. “She has this undeniable force and raw emotion she brings to every project. When we began conceptualizing ‘Closer To God,’ her name was at the forefront of my mind. I had to convince her to come out of retirement, but I knew she would perfectly capture the spiritual essence and depth of the song. Collaborating with her on both the song and its visual was like harmonizing with a kindred spirit. Together, we’ve created something truly special.”
“The song’s message of love and divine connection resonated deeply with me, and visually representing that was a beautiful challenge. I believe we’ve created something that will touch people’s souls. The video captures the profound sentiment of feeling divinely connected when in the presence of true love. It paints a picture of raw emotion, vulnerability, and the magic of finding someone who brings you closer to the divine,” Taylor added.
The Love Album: Off The Grid featured several big names including The Weeknd, Mary J. Blige, Summer Walker, John Legend, Kehlani, Justin Bieber, H.E.R., Jazmine Sullivan, French Montana, Fabolous, The-Dream, Busta Rhymes, Dawn Richard, 21 Savage and many, many more.
