Lil Yachty goes to a'70s-inspired prom in his latest music video for "Bring It Back," a track off his forthcoming album Teenage Emotions. At 19-years-old the rapper is due for a bash. The question is: did he have an epic promposal?

The pastel-filled video sees Yachty and friends tearing up the dance floor, spinning on cakes, posing for the camera, and have a general blast. A band, appropriately dubbed The Love Boat, fill the stage. At the end, Yachty leaves with the prom queen, of course.

Just last month, Yachty shared the album art of Teenage Emotions, which sees a melange of people, including a kissing gay couple, a girl with vitiligo, and an albino man. Following the art's release, Yachty took to Instagram live to explain the direction: "“In high school, as a teenager growing up, you’re surrounded by so many different types of people. You’re going through your growth spurt as a teenager, and you meet so many different people. There are so many types of people in the world who practice different religions or do whatever they want to do. It’s basically like—don’t be afraid to do you, to be you. If you have vitiligo or if you’re gay, or whatever it is, embrace yourself, love yourself, be happy, positive.”

Teenage Emotions is expected May 26.
