Take a look at the video, directed by Jack Begert, below:

‘Are You With That?’ serves as the opening track on Staples’ self-titled fourth album, which was released last Friday (July 9) via Blacksmith/Motown. It was initially shared as a single two days before the album’s release, following lead single ‘Law Of Averages’ in June.

NME gave the new album a four-star review, with writer Kyann-Sian Williams calling it “a refreshing ten-track LP that perfectly illustrates who [Staples] truly is as an artist, and (hopefully) a star”.

Staples has teased that he’ll follow up his self-titled LP with a second album in 2021, tentatively titled ‘Ramona Park Broke My Heart’, as well as a currently untitled TV series bound for Netflix. In December, he’ll make his debut as a graphic novelist with the publication of his book Limbo Beach.

Elsewhere in 2021, Staples has been on a collaborative hot-streak, teaming up with the likes of Pusha-T (for the track ‘Jungle Mantra’), Lil Yachty (for ‘In My Stussy’s’) and Emotional Oranges (for ‘Back & Forth’).

Earlier this month, the rapper spoke about how the music industry “monetises people’s struggles”, and how that affects the image rappers try to sell.

“This is a business where we monetise people’s struggles, pain, death and murder,” he said.
