With the growth of social media as the new medium for breaking artist, music videos have seemed less dramatic and more honest reflections of the artist. Dave’s “Location” off his ‘Pyschodrama’ tape was an instant hit on release, stuffing his verses with street slangs and featuring Burna Boy’s raspy vocals on the catchy hook as a fulfilment of the potentials for UK and Nigerian collaborations. Dave just released the music video for “Location” and its simple documentary style direction highlights Dave’s celebrity status and the song’s remarkable smash hit.
The 4-minute long music video for “Location” is directed by Kaylum and Dave, following Dave and his friends as they make a trip out of the country to perform the song to a rousing crowd of cheering and adoring fans. If the intent behind the video is to flex, they certainly hit all the right spots with cameos from big celebrities like J Hus and Stomzy, while almost every other person featured in the video is seen dripping with icy rings, watches and chains.
You can watch the music video for Dave and Burna Boy’s “Location” below.
