Kodak Black landed his first-ever No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, as Dying to Live took the top spot this week. Shortly after midnight and hours after Billboard announced the news, Kodak returns with a new song and music video just in time for the holidays. “Christmas in Miami” finds Kodak crooning his heart out to a special someone. In the accompanying visual, that special person turns out to be Yung Miami of the City Girls. A romantic clip, Kodak takes Yung Miami to an amusement park where the pair play games and enjoy each other’s presence before it back to the house for some privacy. In one scene, Kodak bends down on one knee and proposes to the City Girls rapper with a ring pop, a moment that made headlines earlier this month.

Watch the cute, on-screen love story play out below.

Saweetie is planning to release her Icy Girl album in early 2019. After releasing “Pissed” late last month, the Oakland rapper returns with the official music video for her latest single. Directed by Christian Sutton, the rising Bay Area star draws inspiration from Game of Thrones channeling her inner Khaleesi.

The theme of the video is Game of Thrones. I love Game of Thrones, and I feel like “Pissed” captures that — our teams are constantly fighting to be No. 1. I dressed up as Khaleesi to symbolize what I’m trying to do. I’m trying to take over. When I first came out with my blonde hair, people were calling me the black Khaleesi, and I kind of just ran with that,” Saweetie tells Billboard, speaking on the visual’s theme.
