Lil Xan and Charli XCX Ghost Ride in New “Moonlight” Video
Lil Xan's "Moonlight," featuring Charli XCX, is the latest Total Xanarchy track to receive visual treatment.
The Austin Peters-directed video, released on June 21, finds the duo in a moody, smoke-filled, palm tree-spotted suburb, where all the lights flicker and the cars apparently drive themselves. Xan and Charli deliver their harmonies from the middle of empty roads and parking lots, at one point ghost riding in their retro whip.
The tone matches the Redlands, Calif. rapper's reclusive writing, drawn from his self-professed experience with depression and anxiety. "Yeah, I'm on my own, feelin' alone, drink Patrón/Got them evil bitches all up in my mothafuckin' zone/Ayy, ayy, and why you never answer phones?/Ayy, ayy and yeah, I'm chillin' home alone," he raps.
"Moonlight" follows "Deceived," "Betrayed," "The Man," "Slingshot," "Wake Up" and "Far" as the latest Total Xanarchy cut to earn a video. Lil Xan also shared an alternate live performance video of "Wake Up" last month.
Charli last popped up with rappers on Rita Ora's controversial single "Girls," also featuring Cardi B and Bebe Rexha. She appeared on David Guetta and Afrojack's "Dirty Sexy Money" with French Montana in November 2017.
