A$AP Rocky has a new song and video out. Rocky released the official video for “D.M.B.” on Thursday. The song “DMB” – which stands for “dat’s mah bish,” in case you didn’t know – and the accompanying chaotic, colorful video pays homage to the couple’s whirlwind courtship as well as their mutual love of a party. But the most pressing question we had after watching the video was: Did A$AP Rocky just propose to Rihanna with a grill set? Rihanna emerges around the 2:50 point with a gauzy crimson veil (after all, she’d never be seen in anything as ordinary as white on her wedding day), rapidly tearing it back to show A$AP bare his teeth and a gilded “marry me.” She says, “I do,” through her diamond-studded grills.
Rocky had already teased fans with a short footage of himself and Rihanna on Instagram before of the release. With Rocky’s and Rihanna’s first child on the way, you’d think the couple would be relaxing and enjoying the anticipation of their birth. Of course, Riri and A$AP aren’t like most other couples. Despite being unable to attend, Rihanna solidified her status as the Met Gala’s reigning queen by being immortalized in a virtual monument on Monday.
Directed by A$AP himself – Rihanna appears throughout the roughly five-minute visual experience, delivering on the promise of those pictures. Rocky is seen using his grill to inquire, “Marry me?” at one point. Meanwhile, Rihanna is shown with the same grill setup in response to a “I do.”
The video features fire hydrant-soaked block parties, a hangout in a Black hair salon, the rapper holding court in a pair of dazzling gold sequined pants, and the couple kicking back on a classic New York exterior fire escape, wearing boldly colored furs designed by Virgil Abloh.
Rocky wears a one-of-a-kind two-finger band that he made with Jason of Beverly Hills and features 120 grams of 18 karat gold and five carats of flawless round brilliant white diamonds in the video.
Rihanna, probably the world’s most stylish woman – or, as A$AP Ferg may describe it, a fashion killa – is the true star of the show. She finishes with a show-stopping ensemble consisting of a silk durag, a leather bustier, and matching pants, all topped off with an ankle-skimming, shearling-lined brown leather coat. We can all agree that when it comes to style, the couple more than delivered.
