Dave releases visuals for his hit single ‘Location’ featuring Burna Boy, taken from his debut album PSYCHODRAMA. The track has already hit #6 on the U.K Singles Chart, so it was only right to release the fiery visuals in time for the summer.
The track begins with Burna Boy’s mellow melodic vibe on the catchy chorus. Dave then jumps in with bars dedicated to his interactions with the opposite gender and party lifestyle “I preed that girl outrageous ting, but she can’t see cos I got shades and ting”. For this vocalised, head-nodding beat, production credits are split between Fraser Smith, Dave and one of the hottest producers for U.K hip-hop Jae5.
Dave is known to take creative control over his projects, assisting Kaylum Dennis with the video direction for these visuals. The video begins with a screenshot of an old post taken from Dave’s twitter in which he sets the scene for a ‘perfect’ 2019 where J Hus is free, girls are smiling and ‘Location’ is playing in the background. Dave decided to bring this vision to reality, set in Ibiza at Stormzy’s annual #MerkyFest, amoungst the bikini-clad women this star-studded video also includes familiar faces from the scene such as Konan, Aitch and Mist.
Picture the scenes. You’re drunk in Ibiza. It’s merky festival and you’ve had a couple cocktails, Hus is free, location is playing, Girls are smiling at you. What a 2019
