Twista and Jeremih Try to Find That Special Someone in “Next to You” Video
Directed by Philly Fly Boy, the video pays homage to the 1995 film Friday by reenacting some of the infamous porch scenes. The song samples R&B group Rose Royce’s classic “I Wanna Get Next to You,” which was played in the Ice Cube movie. The song also has the same vibe as its predecessor, with the Chicago OG trying to push up on a special young lady.
"What's up lil' mama? Could you tell me your name?/I'm in all white, cocaine, so flame/Is what I'm smoking on when I/Think about it when I'm looking at your body when I see you cause I really wanna come close/So fly and I want you the most/Let's have a toast, drinks on me/Summertime, drop top, wintertime, minks on me/Too cold, I'm hoping that really want me cause I/Be at you cause wanna get next to you," Twista spits.
Jeremih handles the chorus, crooning, "I wanna get next to you/Tonight I got my Christian Dior's on/On my new Spider from Zone/I got a couple dollars and yeah/I just gotta, I just gotta/Text her what she on/And she text back "I'm alone"/Yeah, you know ain't no questions baby/I wanna get next to you."
In a second scene, which features a cameo from Trae Tha Truth, Twista meets a woman at a packed diner and successfully lays his mack down.
