After breaking out in 2014 with his hit, "On the Regular," Shamir seems to be riding the wave of momentum into 2015: his recent SXSW shows were considered to be among the festival's best, his debut album, Ratchet, is out on May 18th and today he's released a new video for "Call It Off" that shows the singer turning into a puppet. Badass. In the clip, which was directed by Philip Hodges, who works in the Jim Henson Studios and who made a Shamir puppet just for the video, the Las Vegas-based artist hangs out in the Nevada desert and dances around a clothing store. He also makes a great argument for why you should never settle. "You just can't make a thot a wife," he sings before instructing you to quit "basic ratchet guys." Truer words never spoken.
