Action Bronson pays tribute to Eddie Murphy in ‘Coming To America’-inspired video
The 2015 YouTube Music Awards gave us videos of varying success. FKA twigs creeped us out with “Glass & Patron”, while EDM superstar Kygo gave us a disappointing video for a disappointing song with “Stole the Show.”
For us Action Bronson definitely wins the day with his video for “Baby Blue.” His tribute to Eddy Murphy’s character in the seminal cult hit “Coming to America” could not be more hilarious.
Directed by Lil Chris, the video for “Baby Blue” sees Bronson playing an Albanian king looking for a bride. Everything from the classic limo scene, to the unforgettable one at the barber shop is put on display in the video.
The solid Mark Ronson-produced “Baby Blue” features a collaboration with Chance the Rapper who also makes a timely appearance in the video. “Baby Blue” is off of Bronson’s 6th full length album “Mr. Wonderful” which can be purchased here.
