The song samples OutKast’s Stankonia classic “Ms. Jackson,” while the epic video draws inspiration from Game of Thrones. SZA and Khaled go to battle as gladiators in the action-packed clip, directed by Joseph Kahn. In her triumphant scenes, SZA the warrior princess slays her opponents with a sword before taking the throne. Wearing a crown, Khaled fight off his rivals one by one.
“It’s just us against the world / In this life of sin / Ain’t nobody gonna take us out / It’s always us, it’s never them,” sings SZA as she and Khaled ward off an army of enemies.
In the end, they emerge victorious and receive a hero’s celebration as they ride gold elephants through their kingdom.
In addition to “Just Us,” Khaled plans to drop even visuals for “Celebrate,” “Jealous,” and “Holy Mountain” later today.
