Polo G pays tribute to classic sitcom Martin with new “Martin & Gina” video

Chicago rap star Polo G has released an epic new video paying homage to the classic 90’s sitcom Martin.

“Martin & Gina,” produced by Hagan, Lilkdubb and Tahj Money, was originally released on May 15 as part of Polo’s second studio album, The Goat. The track debuted at #61 on the Billboard Hot 100 (US) during the week of May 30th, 2020, and just recently cracked 27 million streams on Spotify.

“Martin & Gina” features Polo G using Martin Lawrence’s relationship with co-star Tisha Campbell (Gina) to relate to his own love interest. It was also important for him to demonstrate his versatility as an artist.

“I was definitely trying to trigger that female fan base and bring more of that out,” Polo commented on a Genius post dedicated to the single.

“I know the female fans, they walk with the music more than the guys do sometimes. Definitely trying to capture them, and show them the other side of me too. That it ain’t all just street music.”

The best part of the 2020 XXL Freshman’s new video is the recreated apartment set, and the face that it shows love to some of the most classic scenes from the sitcom’s five year run. As reported by Uproxx: “There’s the iconic moment when Gina gets stuck from ‘Headin’ For Trouble’; there’s the infamous aftermath of Martin’s fight with Tommy ‘Hitman’ Hearns from ‘Guard Your Grill’; and there’s the emotional rollercoaster of ‘The Break-Up.'” The video was directed by Reel Goats and features Instagram comedian Pretty Vee (aka Vena Excell).

“Martin & Gina” and the rest of The Goat album are available on various digital streaming platforms including Apple Music, Spotify, and TIDAL via Capalot.
