  • Funny.

  • What a blessing.

  • The video was way more narrative.

  • And we had a whole scene on the street that we had to cut because the audio of the camera died.

  • It was like this thing where it was like the block was empty and then I like I'm on the phone and I'm talking to a friend like yeah, I'm just trying to find a good night and then all of a sudden I walk into this party that transported to another world, I'm like, whoa.

  • A video that I loved recently was the Sunshine video by DJ Kallen.

  • In fact, joe They were just on this Yeah, and they were just hanging out, I'm an actor and I love to, you know, I love narrative and all this stuff, but sometimes it can get, we can get so caught up in the narrative that you forget about the vibe and that video is just a good vibe.

  • You know, I think about videos like uh touched by Omarion, you know, he's just dancing in the street and like those videos feel like they're just a good they're just a good vibe.

  • A lot of they get thrown videos are like that too, they just be chilling on the beach or something like that.

  • They're just hanging out.

  • Artists is just looking into the camera, like just singing straight to the lens and everybody's just chilling and partying and there's still a little bit of narrative here.

  • Like, you know, you see there's a scene with us in the bathroom and we kind of like got away from the crowd and we found each other.

  • Finally, we had that that that one on one moment at the end of the day.

  • It's really about the vibe and it's really about, yeah, we're having this connection, but it's not only about this connection is about the connection between the people in this party and just the overwhelming desire to just have a good time.

  • Music has been a part of my life since I was a kid.

  • You know, music was and is always my first love.

  • That's how I even got into musicals, you know, was because I loved music.
