In preparation, the weekend was spent relaxing in Long Beach enjoying fun, sun and warm beautiful weather. Long Beach is a coastal city located twenty minutes south of Los Angeles. "Reminds me a lot of Durban" says DuBoiz. "A few days of rest, and the work begins."
Back to Los Angeles for fashion stylists fittings, director meetings and conference calls in preparation for the video shoot. The video shoot took place on 21 September in Los Angeles. The video was directed by Matt Alonzo and produced by top production team of Colab Studios, LLC.

DuBoiz thoughts on the video, "It was all a dream, no pun intended. I found myself looking in the mirror during the day, asking myself if this was reality. And it was - my reality of being in the US, shooting a music video with Tyga."
"The director was creative, the team was on point and the girls were on fire!"
DuBoiz says, "The video was a great experience, and I really appreciate Tyga and everyone that came through to make the shoot a success. It's really a dream come true to have a song with such a talented and young global star like Tyga. God is great!"
