Doing his best to avoid the dreaded sophomore slump, B.o.B has released his new video for “Strange Clouds” from his second album of the same name.
The “Airplanes” hitmaker told press that the song wasn’t originally meant for him, but when he heard it he knew he had to have it for his album.
"I was actually in mixtape mode when I heard it, so I just really wanted to go in on the beat. A hook came to me, and it kind of started to stick out to me the more and more I listened to it, and it ended up being the title track for the album. I wanted to get an artist on it who could really bring it even more to life, the whole concept of 'Strange Clouds.'"
And that artist ended up being Lil Wayne. "We brought the record to him, we turned it around real quick, and when we put our final ears to it, we were like, 'Yeah, this is the first one to come out and really let people know we're back.'"
