For A$AP Rocky, promoting Beats By Dre’s new Beats Studio Pro over-ear headphones is a family affair. 

The rapper directs and stars in the brand’s ad, titled “Iconic Sound,” in which his off-screen partner—global superstar Rihanna—interrupts his recording session to send him to buy diapers for their infant son.
