Post Malone and Ozzy Osbourne have released a video together for Ozzy’s song ‘It’s A Raid’ and it’s an animated masterpiece.
‘It’s A Raid’ is a track from Ozzy’s acclaimed 2020 album Ordinary Man. As per Blabbermouth, Ozzy revealed the crazy story behind the song. The title came to him while he was recording Black Sabbath’s Vol. 4 in Bel Air, California. Ozzy comically triggered the houses’ security alarm which prompted the police to surround the property. The house just so happened to have lots of drugs inside: “I’m shouting, ‘IT’S A FUCKIN’ RAIIIIID’, before hiding the drugs and ingesting cocaine while hiding in one of the home’s bathrooms,” he said.
The video was directed by Tomas Lenert and sees Ozzy and Post get together for a chaotic adventure. Starting at the aforementioned Bel Air house, the messy pair lead police on a adrenaline-fuelled, high-speed wild goose chase through the LA streets, passing some of the city’s notable landmarks on the way.
Ozzy hilariously admitted that he didn’t even know who Post was until a couple of years ago but that soon changed. “Since then we’ve worked together on two studio tracks and have performed together twice,” he said.
“Understandably COVID-19 made it difficult to get together to shoot a music video for ‘It’s A Raid’ so we opted for this wildly imagined animated video for the final single from the Ordinary Man album.”
Ozzy previously worked alongside Post on ‘Take What You Want’, a track from the latter’s album Hollywood Bleeding. The track was produced by Andrew Watt, who collaborated with Ozzy on Ordinary Man as both a producer and writer.
Ozzy has also revealed the exciting news that he’s been in the studio working on a new album with producer Watt, saying that he “can’t wait to for everyone to hear my new music.”
