Kygo stunned the world when he released a collaboration with the late Whitney Houston back in June. The track came seven years after the legendary singer's death, and features cover vocals from the Steve Winwood classic, "Higher Love."

In honor of the track, Kygo (real name Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll) released an 80's inspired music video. 

The video features a number of call-backs to the 80s with sweatbands and leg warmers galore. The video even features what has become the most iconic vehicle of the decade, the DeLorean.
