Roc Nation’s Belly falls head over heels in the latest visuals for his single “Ballerina” off last mixtape, Another Day in Paradise.
The video is directed by Ramon Ayala, and focuses on the singer’s love interest; a ballerina, who dances at a strip club in order to make ends meet to pursue her passion for dancing as a ballerina. The story is told by the Belly as he sings: “She mix the red and white wine like the Catalina (She do it)/You call her a stripper, that’s my ballerina (Oh God)/See that’s your stage but it’s my arena (She mine)/That’s not a stripper, that’s my ballerina (Hold up)/Let me see you dance for me, dance, dance, dance.”
Belly has hard work is no surprise to fans who’ve known him since “Hot Girl”. He was recently named one of Forbes’ 5 Hip Hop artists this year. In addition, he’s added songwriter to his list of achievements as he co-wrote Beyoncé’s “6 inch” featuring fellow Canadian The Weeknd, which was featured on highly-praised album, Lemonade.
With things ramping up for the multi-talented artist, he is said to be working on a new upcoming project, which is set to release mid-November.
