On Tuesday (Sept 14), Nas rang in his 48th birthday with the release of his all-new music video for the collaborative track “Brunch on Sundays” featuring Blxst.
The song appears on Nas’ 14th studio album, King’s Disease II, which dropped Aug. 6 as the sequel to his 2020 King’s Disease album; the latter LP earned Nas the Grammy for best rap album last year, his first win from the Recording Academy after a total 14 nominations. His latest project, King’s Disease II, with “Brunch on Sundays,” peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and charted for three weeks.
In his star-studded new music video — captured at California hot spot Catch LA — Nas is seen enjoying an all-white-clad brunch alongside LeBron James, Swizz Beatz, Russell Westbrook, Cordae, Lil Rel Howery, his collaborator Blxst and more.
At one point in the music video, Lil Rel stands up to propose a toast to Nas, in which he says, “To one of the O.G.’s in the game, Nas. Man, lyricist, poet, a prophet, fam, you did it the right way, bro. Hit-Boy [is] in here … Let’s propose a toast to Nas. To better years, brunch on Sundays.”
As the song comes to an end, Nas raps, “To make it Sunday to Sunday, that sh– is deep.”
In an Instagram post he shared Tuesday announcing the new music video, Nas wrote, “Bday Brunch Vibes with my guys.”
Since the ’94 release of his debut studio album Illmatic, Nas has dropped 27 Billboard Hot 100 tracks, including two top 10 hits. In 1999, his album I Am… peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, where it charted for 25 weeks.
