As his stock rises, Ricky shows off his lavish eligible bachelor lifestyle in his heat-seeking new video, “FaceTime”.

Directed by WethePartySean, Ricky grabs up his crew of Wholovemoney and Young Gunna for an NSFW hotel party. Countin’ money and making plays, the party is co-joined with an adult lingerie party filled with a dozen of beautiful Bay Area women. Premium alcohol flows while women dance around in nothing at all and the players enjoy the show while they FaceTime friends to show off the party. In the presidential suite, Ricky Styles is definitely a name that music needs to get familiar with.

“Facetime” is off of the new Ricky Styles EP, titled, ‘Good Side Bad Side’. Along with the new single, ‘Good Side Bad Side’ features breakout tracks, “Shake That”, “Do It For the Gang”, and the bonus cut, “Problems”. ‘Good Side Bad Side’ is available now on all streaming platforms via Dollar Sign Records.
