Between his joint project with 21 Savage and Offset, a collab album with Big Sean and his production countless hit singles, Metro Boomin has positioned himself as perhaps the most famous all contemporary rap producers. He continues staking his claim for that title by appearing in a new ad for Gap.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the brand has enlisted the services Lil Metro for a new advertisement featuring himself, Top Dawg Entertainment's SZA, singer Sabrina Claudio, 13 Reasons Why star Miles Heizer, Ocean’s 8 actress Awkwafina, comedian Naomi Watanabe and YouTube star Connor Franta.
The ad, which is part Gap's new Logo Remix campaign designed to celebrate the brand's 50th anniversary by "remixing" Gap logos from the past, finds Metro, SZA and other contemporary entertainment luminaries dancing to a modernized version Thompson Twins’ “Hold Me Now." Metro Boomin remixed the track.
"For almost 50 years, our iconic logo has represented our heritage," Gap says in the caption for an Instagram post featuring the new ad. To celebrate this special new collection showcasing its evolution, we brought together a cast the world’s leading culture remixers. Shop the collection at gap.com on 1/27."
We have to say, Metro and SZA both look pretty fresh.
