“Tell Tim Chalamet to come get at me.”

It seems the charm of Timothee Chalamet is universal. While queer audiences have been enthralled by his acting chops and personality since Call Me By Your Name, Tyler the Creator called out the actor for his complexion in his newly released song, "Okra."

Labeled as "a throwaway song" by Tyler on the song's music video page on YouTube, the rapper devotes a line or two of the track to waxing poetic about Chalamet's skin. "Tell Tim Chalemet to come get at me / skin glowing clear of acne / diamonds see through so holographic."

The Odd Future cofounder had the internet abuzz last summer with the release of his fourth album, Flower Boy. In the song "Garden Shed" he raps about "kissing white boys since 2004," which further convoluted perceptions of his sexuality - which seems to be exactly how he likes it. Watch and listen, below.
