Paloma Ford connects with Rick Ross in “All For Nothing” video

The collaboration is taken from last year’s ‘X Tapes’ EP.

Back in August, Paloma Ford blessed the masses with her latest EP X Tapes, the first since her 2016 debut Nearly Civilized. One of the standouts from the emotionally charged offering was “All For Nothing,” which was co-written by Dazmin Laster and features an assist from Rick Ross. The track sees her singing about focusing on herself and her success following a failed relationship:

“All that heartbreak and mistakes, it ain’t all for nothing, I’ma trade that for a Maybach, all-black’s how I’m coming, nights I gave up for nights that I live up, nights I cry will be nights that I shine, I’m resilient, I’m not gonna give up...”

Now, the track sees a new visual that comes courtesy of Chandler Lass. The clip begins rather cryptically, with Ford being handed what looks like a tarot card that brings forth a heavy emotion from the singer — elsewhere, she’s sitting near a piano with candles lit all around her. Rozay performs his verse from the backseat of a Maybach, while other shots of Ford giving off spiritual vibes in a lake are interspersed throughout.

In an interview with REVOLT, Ford revealed how the collaboration came to fruition, which wasn’t without some incertitude:

“...I always hesitate throwing artists on there because I feel like a lot of people know me for some of the features that I’ve done and I never want that to be like, “OK, Paloma’s a feature-artist” ... we kind of just waited ‘til the end and this song was just like so strong, so powerful to me, and the only person I could really hear on it was Ross. So, I just requested. I was like, if anybody’s going to be on the project, I would love for Ross to bless it. And he did!”
