Offset, Quavo, and Takeoff — the trio that make up Migos — has released a preview of their new song, "Stir Fry."
The NBA All-Star Weekend is set to run from Feb. 16 to Feb. 18, but the rap group has already started hyping the event. The group finally released the full song on Christmas Day.
"Stir Fry" is a song produced by Pharrell Williams. The single is from Migos' new album, Culture II, a follow-up to their 2017 breakout project, Culture.
The song from the trio from Atlanta is perfect for the upcoming sports event with the rappers spitting ball-related lyrics. As for the music video, it featured the trio decked in official NBA athletic wear from head-to-toe. The video also prominently featured NBA highlights throughout the years.
Sports And Music
Before dropping the official music video, NBA and TNT also released a behind-the-scenes look into the making of "Stir Fry." Drew Watkins, the Vice President and Creative Director of Turner Sports, explained why the basketball league chose Migos and the song to promote the 20018 All-Star Weekend.
"They're the hottest hip-hop group around right now. These guys have a lot of energy," he stated. "Their song carries that flavor of mixing it up, getting out there on the court, and we're trying to take the energy, and use it to push 'All-Star' to new heights."
Migos had an amazing 2017. With Culture, the rap group topped the Billboard-100 chart with the song "Bad & Boujee." Having their new single, "Stir Fry," become the official song of the upcoming sports event was a nice cap to an amazing year in music.
That is how exactly the group sees the project.
"It's a wonderful experience, it's a blessing," Takeoff stated. "I'm going for the gusto. We want all the gold, all the marbles," added Offset.
