The clip is fueled by lyrics detailing his highly publicized divorce with singer Kelis. There are also glimpses of Nas standing on a balcony staring pensively at the city; cleaning his ex’s belongings out of his closet; and looking at home movies as he ponders a love lost.
Perhaps the biggest nod to Nas’ break-up is the brief image of the infamous green dress that was featured on the Life is Good album cover. It is the dress Kelis wore during their wedding.
“Bye Baby” will be the fourth music video from the Queensbridge MC’s critically hailed album Life Is Good, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. No word yet on when the video will drop. But the brief trailer ends with the telling words “Coming Soon.” —Keith Murphy, CBS Local
