Chanel West Coast just doesn’t run out of looks that turn heads. The 32-year-old rapper and “Ridiculousness” star took a break from promoting newly-dropped “America’s Sweetheart” album today – the MTV face was, instead, shouting out a close friend with new beats, with a video showing West Coast and Helena Tamargo shaking things up on Instagram. Chanel’s 3.5 million followers got her via a quick story, but the feature only lasting 24 hours has permanent backup. Helena made a post. Check it out below.
Scroll for the video. It comes as Chanel makes major headlines for a seemingly never-ending carousel of hot looks promoting her 19-track debut album. Bikinis and angel wings and sheer undies have been flaunting Chanel’s killer figure, with this look adding to the pile.
The video showed Chanel and her pal going Tik Tok-style to music and shot indoors. Chanel, snazzy as ever and ensuring her fans got a 360-degree view, sported a tiny white and peasant-style crop top, plus the jazziest ever sheer pants.
Chanel’s pants, boasting multicolor lightning bolts and see-through fabrics showing black underpants beneath, were definitely a head-turner, with the “No Plans” rapper also going fun with pigtail hair buns and a choker matching her pants. Meanwhile, Helena wore skimpy leopard prints.
Chanel, alerting fans to her friend’s new “beats,” has since commented on the video with a “Yassss” as Helena wrote: “
“7 years ago I recorded this track with the incredible talented @kamalsound who convinced me to get in the booth??
It was all for giggles just dropping bars on my free time❤️until my friends helped me realize its energy was eternal and contagious ?”

Chanel dropped her album in late October. The “Alcoholic” rapper, since appearing on Angela Yee’s “Lip Service” podcast to reveal the extent of backlash she’s faced in hip-hop, has been busy ramping up promo for the record. “America’s Sweetheart” includes 2019-released “Black Roses” track, plus new songs including “Heaven’s Calling” and “Vinyl.”
“I called this album America’s Sweetheart because it’s an oxymoron and contradicts the perception that many have of me,” Chanel explained: “I have flaws. I’ve made mistakes.” The rapper has also addressed white privilege.
Chanel continued: “I’ve benefitted from white privilege and I’ve had second chances in life that, unfortunately, many people have not received.”
Chanel’s final “Civil War” track addresses equality, from race to gender. Chanel is also fresh from encouraging the opposite of war – “unity” was this month promoted as West Coast went shirtless on a U.S. flag, with the rapper also taking a moment to thank U.S. veterans on Veteran’s Day. Chanel is right now shooting the video for “40 Yard Dash.”
