Action Bronson released his stupidly fun major-label debut Mr. Wonderful today, and his video for the lilting Mark Ronson-produced Chance The Rapper collab "Baby Blue" is part of today's YouTube Music Awards festivities.

Action Bronson – “Baby Blue” (Feat. Chance The Rapper) (Prod. Mark Ronson)

Action Bronson's latest Mr. Wonderful single "Baby Blue" reunites him with Chance The Rapper, who contributes one of his signature raspy, sing-song hooks (co-written by Zane Lowe!) and raps the final verse.

Madonna – “Iconic” (Feat. Chance The Rapper & Mike Tyson) & “Veni Vidi Vici” (Feat. Nas)

It's impossible to describe the roll-out of Madonna's forthcoming record, Rebel Heart, as anything but completely ridiculous.
