Camila Cabello - I LUV IT Feat. Playboi Carti


Fans are luv-ing Playboi Carti’s gas station scene in collaborator Camila Cabello’s “I Luv It” music video, but it almost didn’t happen.

Cabello sat down for an interview with Power 106 Los Angeles’ Brown Bag Mornings crew, where she revealed that “something happened with [Carti’s] plane,” which nearly caused him to miss the Nicolas Mendez-directed video shoot entirely. “He got there after the music video was actually wrapped, so we had to find a place to film his part of the video and we ended up paying the guy that worked at the gas station to let it stay open for us,” the singer recalled. “He got there and my mom had the video screen and she was low-key directing, and he was like, ‘Your mom has the iPad screen, that’s so hard.’ He was so sweet, my mom was, like, in love with him.”

Prior to its release last month, Cabello had been teasing snippets of “I Luv It,” which samples Gucci Mane’s “Lemonade” and finds her interpolating Rihanna. She also reflected on exploring the rare human connection she has to select individuals, which makes her feel like she’s in “outer space,” while realizing that pace isn’t sustainable and she’ll eventually get burned out. “Certain things in our human realm do make me feel like I’m in outer space, and the very rare few times where I’ve had incredible chemistry with someone is one of them,” she previously said in a statement about the track’s inspiration. “Part of that cocktail is also the emotional drama between you and that person, and the chaos and butterflies and nerves and passion. It’s unsustainable and not peaceful and exhausting, but also, I LUV IT.”
