Nic D Releases “Fine Apple” Music Video

After generating over 40 million views on TikTok, buzzing rapper and singer Nic D serves up the music video for his single “Fine Apple,” which he co-directed with cohort Cakes Mitchell.

In the hilarious visual, Nic D orders his favorite beverage from a local diner before skateboarding down main street, chopping fruit in half with a sword Fruit Ninja-style, and finally landing a behind-the-back three-pointer with a pineapple. The track’s hummable guitar gives way to a glitchy beat as Nic D weaves together clever rhymes with the chantable chorus, “I like my water with lemon and lime, that’s ‘cause they’re better combined, kinda like us, you and I…if you were fruit, you’d be a fine apple.”

Of the meaning behind the song, Nic D says, “I wrote this song for and about my wife. I tend to write songs about glorifying my wife because I like to uplift the women in my life. It was written in a moment after we had a conversation about me pursuing music full-time, and she fully hopped on board. I felt really supported by her, which resulted in a feel-good song. When you have people in your corner, it feels good and makes the music feel happier. I write a lot of songs about her, and there will be more because she deserves it. And I like my water with lemon and lime.”

On the video, he says “The song did really well on TikTok, so I did a lot of callbacks to videos I made on TikTok, since that’s where the song first went viral. For the people who made it happen for me, I wanted to make them feel like those bits and pieces were for them, because they were part of the whole process for me.”
