Funnyman rapper Lil Dickey has released a mega-ambitious video to go with his globally-minded new single, “Earth,” and the track – along with its eye-catching animated clip – features country star Zac Brown.
To be fair, “Earth” also features 29 more of the biggest stars in the world, including everyone from Justin Bieber to Ariana Grande and Leonardo DiCaprio. The whole point of Lil Dickey’s “Earth” is to draw attention to Earth Day – which is April 22nd – and a message about coming together to save the Earth from what the entire scientific community insists is a coming climate catastrophe.
The cast of guest artists also includes Shawn Mendes, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Halsey, Brendon Urie, Ed Sheeran, Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Kevin Hart, Adam Levine, Shawn Mendes, Charlie Puth, Sia, Hailee Steinfeld, Lil Jon, Rita Ora, Miguel, Lil Yachty, Meghan Trainor, Joel Embiid, Tory Lanez, John Legend, Bad Bunny, Psy, Kris Wu, Backstreet Boys, Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat.
In the video, each of the superstars plays a different animal, while Lil Dickey himself takes on the role of a hapless caveman. Bieber plays a baboon, Grande is a Zeebra, Ed Sheeran plays a koala bear, and on it goes. For his part, Brown takes on the form of a cow.
Money raised by the track and video will be donated to deserving organizations around the world – after being funneled through DiCaprio’s foundation, which is already working in the field and will help direct funds where they are most needed. Visit WeLoveTheEarth.org for more information.
The Zac Brown Band is currently wrapping up its Down the Rabbit Hole Live tour, and will kick off the Owl Tour in May. They are also working on a new album, with hopes of releasing it this summer.
