Not to be outdone by the entire album of GoT-inspired tracks released earlier this year, Sean Combs aka Puff Daddy aka Puff Diddy aka Diddy released a music video tribute yesterday to A Song of Ice and Fire. The lyrics, however…I don’t think George R.R. Martin had anything to do with those.
The song’s name, in case you listened to that on mute, is called “I Want the Love,” which I guess is semi-appropriate thematically to Game of Thrones. The intro states, “I need the love now, if y’all motherfuckers gonna be crying and playing thirty minute specials when I’m gone (an hour special that I’m gone) fuck that, love me while I’m here–” a particularly poignant sentiment when you consider the brutal and brief lives of Martin’s characters.
As far as Game of Thrones music videos made by moguls goes, however, “I Want the Love” looks like its budget was blown in the least interesting ways. C’mon, Daddy, you set yourself up with that “I don’t catch feelings/I catch flights” line! I was definitely waiting for a dragon.
