Summer and pop music has grown inseparable with artists dedicating songs and full projects to the holiday season and everything it represents. From Maleek Berry’s Last Daze Of Summer to Florida’s entire discography, the party seems to depend on the music as much as the music depend on the party. Deji Abdul wore his summer influences proudly on his sleeves for his single, “Summer 17” released back in June but his recently released video takes care not to rehash the past.
Released just short of the summer window deadline, his video for “Summer 17” is set in a dance school. Opening with a one sided dialogue over the phone that reveals that he just opened the school and dancers can “Come Through”, he is able to marry the song’s dance narrative with the dance video without sticking stubbornly to the overdone summer motif.
Watch the video for “Summer 17” produced by Tshisz Nelso below.
