Producer Jannie McInnes from Revolver Film Company says that Wendy was inspired by a visit to Africa a year or so ago, although "the video's location was to read as an anonymous magic frontier." But she knew she could find some amazing dancers in Jamaica following her experience working in Kingston late last year.

"We saw a lot of fantastic people but our absolute favourite was Sashi Empire, a dance crew of six guys who comprise the core group of talent in the video including the lead guy, Kemar," Jannie explains. One of the additional solo dancers was Mystic, the lead girl in the video.

"We had the brilliant choreographer Sho-tyme with us, who was great with structuring the movement and he encouraged the dancers to bring their own flavour to the music which made for some of the coolest moves. Luckily for us, the cast was so talented, they where able to freestyle amazingly and also move and express within the narrative of the video perfectly."
