Personally, if someone was “Creepin’” around with other folks, I wouldn’t want to know either, and these four artists make it abundantly clear that they definitely don’t.
“Creepin’” came out on rapper-producer Metro Boomin’s sophomore album, HEROES AND VILLAINS. The track samples Mario Winans’ 2004 single, “I Don’t Wanna Know.” The original version, released on Dec. 2nd, became popular quickly, rising to the charts and peaking at #5 on the Hot 100 chart. Now with an accompanying verse from Diddy (released Mar. 17th), the song has an extra layer of lyrics that make you just want to yell or go hard in the gym too. However, while 21 Savage and The Weeknd express their sentiment about not having a woman creep behind their back, Diddy doubles down, expressing that he’d like to fall in love and make money with someone, leaving loyalty to never be questioned.
The music video captures the villian-esque scene as well, with the first shot being of The Weeknd pulling into an alleyway in a classic Lincoln. However, it becomes apparent that someone is watching him. In an infrared light on multiple monitors, alongside Diddy, 21 Savage, and Metro Boomin. The woman watching (portrayed by Coco Jones!) begins to flirt with Metro Boomin while 21 Savage is recording his verse, ultimately making him take the headphones off as he finishes with “Can’t even record, you got me out my zone,” before she leaves to get in the car with The Weeknd.
