Marital issues between Cardi B and Offset were in the headlines a while ago, but all such woes are forgotten as the couple collaborated for Offset's new video 'Clout,' the second single from debut album 'Father of 4.'

The three and a half minute long video released Wednesday, is being compared to the collab between Busta Rhymes and Janet Jackson's 1998 'What's It Gonna Be' music video, as Offset drops his rhymes with a lot of hand movements and Cardi B joins him in an all yellow backdrop, as opposed to silver in 'What's It Gonna Be.'

"This video gives me Busta Rhymes vibes is it just.. it's the angles clothes and hair!! It's pretty cool tho[ugh]," a YouTube user said and over 300 people agreed. "BUSTA RYHMES & JANET JACKSON!!!!!! Now I see the real vision they were going for & I'm here for ALL OF IT!!!!😍" said another.

'Clout' calls out people for having the "the IG [Instagram] disease" and thirsty for social accreditation. While Offset raps "No cure for the IG disease, they do anything for clout," Cardi B joins him in racy fishnets and platform heels, while twerking to her and her husband's beat, "They know I'm the bomb, they ticking me off, saying anything to get a response." She also delivers her lap-dancing skills and they surely give the vibe of one helluva power couple.  

With dripping yellow, tight latex, and crazy hairstyles, the duo delivers their message in the backdrop of a mirror chamber. Cardi B is even seen immersed inside a mountain of lemons and, later grinding her husband.



 

This is the hip-hop couple’s first collaboration since their guest verses on Lil Yachty’s 'Who Want the Smoke?' that dropped last July and is their fifth song together besides 'Drip,' 'MotorSport,' and 'Lick.' Prior to this one, the 'Bodak Yellow' hitmaker released 'Please Me' with Bruno Mars and appeared on a remix of Blueface's 'Thotiana.' 

Cardi B is also currently filming to star opposite Jennifer Lopez in 'Hustlers,' an upcoming movie based on a 2016 New York Magazine article about strippers who scam their white collar, Wall Street clients. The movie is slated for a September release.
