Today, singer, songwriter and producer Casely has released the official music video for his hit single “Rude Boy Summer” in collaboration with fellow Trinidadian artist Braveboy. Reminiscent of an old school dancehall summer jam with some deep bass feels, Casely’s magnetic video provides a vibrant way for fans to close out the whirlwind known as Summer 2020. The storyline also features two captivating leading ladies: DJ Jessy ‘PeeWee’ Berrios and Instagram influencer Karolina Achong.
The audio was a part of a “double release” earlier this summer, which was premiered by Rolling Stone India. Scope Magazine refers to it as, “the respire we all need in a chaotic time.”
The final moments of the video pay tribute to DJs all over the world who’s performances and livelihood have been impacted by COVID-19.
