Video: Lil Durk & Teyana Taylor – “Home Body” (Remix) (Directed by Teyana Taylor)

The Chicago Star and OTF Ringleader Heads to an Alternate Westeros To Rendezvous With Teyana Taylor in the Lavish Visual for the Recently-Certified Gold Record

5.3.2019

Critical Praise:

“Unshackled from any kind of outline, Durk’s pen game shines. His rise was dotted with blood-soaked tales that summarized much of drill’s appeal: ground-level glimpses at Chicago’s South Side that colored in the outline offered by grim murder statistics.” –Pitchfork

“Lil Durk continues to be one of the most consistent rappers out.” – The FADER

“the rose that blossomed from the concrete of Chi-Town’s drill music scene” – Billboard

The Video:

Hailing from the frigid North, in a city where you never know whether you will live through the long nights, Lil Durk‘s life has more in common with Game Of Thrones than you might think at first glance. Teaming up with Teyana Taylor to create a diverse and sexy alternate vision of the show’s fantasy realm of Westeros, Lil Durk shares the video for Home Body Remix.” Clad in furs reminiscent of Jon Snow and bejeweled armor that evokes the Unsullied, Durk takes his horse up the old Kingsroad to a mysterious palace, where he interacts with dozens of masked, scantily clad models, before heading up to the chambers of Queen Teyana. Directed by Teyana Taylor herself, the video is a lavish tribute to the massive HBO hit, complete with dreamlike visuals, intricate and elegant costumes, and a fair helping of eye candy.

Explaining her vision for the video Teyana says, “I strive to make videos that are the complete opposite of what’s expected. The song is sexy – it gives me vintage, almost medieval vibes. I love the passion and lovemaking scenes in medieval, fantasy visuals such as 300, Troy, and Game of Thrones so they became my mood board. I watched a favorite scene from 300 on mute but with the ‘Home Body Remix’ song playing in the background and doing that confirmed everything. Durk was super receptive to the idea and went with the flow. He trusted my vision and I couldn’t have asked for things to go more smoothly.”

“Home Body” was the standout hit from November 2018’s Signed to the Streets 3, his first album to be released by Alamo Records. Originally featuring appearances from Gunna and TK Kravitz, “Home Body” was a slow-burning hit–released in March 2018 it eventually earned Gold certification from the RIAA in April 2019. Boosted by the remix, which in audio form features appearances from Taylor and NYC rapper Melii, the song eclipsed 500,000 singles equivalent units moved, including more than 79 million streams on all platforms. A sex positive and melodic rap slow jam, the “Home Body” Remix is a welcome respite from hip-hop’s male gaze.

Just weeks after wrapping an arena tour in support of Meek Mill, Durk recently finished his first leg “The Signed To The Streets III Tour,” his first headlining tour since 2016. Resuming on May 10th, the tour will make stops in the Northeast, Midwest, and South, including appearances at Rolling Loud Festival in Miami and Slumped Fest in White Plains, NY. With support from Yella Beezy and guest spots from the entire roster of Durk’s Only The Family label, including King Von, tickets for the “Signed To The Streets III Tour” are currently available at STTS3.com.
