The wrath of COVID-19 made it impossible for artists to come together in person to shoot music videos, so the monster lineup of Snakehips, Jess Glynne, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and Davido decided to go the animated route. The all-star quartet have unveiled the official music video for their collaborative hit, "Lie for You," in which they fight evil as anime avatars.
Set in a dystopian future, the video kicks off with Glynne and Davido setting out on a mission to thwart an authoritarian system, swerving through luminescent roads on an action-packed car chase. Facing the evil agency head on in an explosive firefight led by a badass A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, they end up joining forces with the heroic Snakehips duo to dismantle the crooked corporation, blowing it up in eye-popping fashion before beaming in victory from a rooftop.
"This is super exciting because not a lot of these exist as official music videos," said director Nicholas Lam. "By bridging the colossal fanbases of Snakehips, Jess Glynne, Davido and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie with the global phenom that is anime, we’re going to create an unstoppable ride or die visual that is guaranteed to crush the internet."
