"Aston Martin Music" is the third single from rapper Rick Ross's fourth studio album Teflon Don. The song was released as a single on October 5, 2010. It features Canadian rapper/singer Drake and singer Chrisette Michele, and is produced by J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League.

A song by Drake called Paris Morton Music features similar music which was also credited to J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League. It differs from Aston Martin Music as it does not feature Rick Ross or Chrisette Michele. However, Drake's rather short verse from the original has been extended to a hook (sung by Drake himself), which is played once at the start and once at the end of the song, with Drake's rapping in the middle. Drake's rap verse from Paris Morton Music is featured on Aston Martin Music's single and the music video.

Music video[edit]

Directed by Gil Green, the music video was premiered on BET's "106 & Park" on October 13, 2010.[1] The video contains Aston Martin models, including the V8 Vantage Volante, DBS V12 Volante, DB9 Volante and Rapide. Drake and Chrisette Michele are featured in the video as well as a cameo from rapper Birdman. It starts with a young Rick Ross determined to own an Aston Martin and live a luxurious life. Throughout the video, scenes of Ross's lover and her dilemma are played. The plot of the video demonstrates Rick Ross' lover taking the fall for a D.E.A. bust, and finding Rick Ross waiting with an Aston Martin for her to drive when she is released. A sequel was featured on Drake's third studio album, Nothing Was the Same as the outro "Pound Cake / Paris Morton Music 2" featuring Jay-Z.
