After a bit of a hiatus, A.CHAL reemerged from musical purgatory with Welcome to GAZI in June. Now, he’s ready to share the visuals for “Round Whippin’,” which is easily the biggest track off the project after racking up over a million plays on SoundCloud. The smooth, R&B/hip-hop vibe of the song is complimented by the stark, black and white video that finds A.CHAL falling through a void and whipping around in a car. “Speeding down Pacific like a bullet/If cops come then we gotta lose ’em/On this road they love to hate on you/But I’ma just keep on cruisin’,” he sings in the clip, directed by Max Vatblé.
“This song’s appeal has been a blessing,” A.CHAL told Complex. “Coming with the video took some time, as I wanted to give the people a visual the would make the same impact & set a standard for myself.” With the warm reception to Welcome to GAZI under his belt and the success of “Round Whippin'” only continuing to grow, we’re clearly going to be seeing a lot more of A.CHAL in the future.
