Another excellent video, with great performances from dancers Shanie Ryan and Yasmin Ogbu, and a top edit. And Wiley even showed up (eventually) and performed. Take that. <strong><em>Ben Newman on making the video for Wiley's Take That</em></strong> "I had hardly anytime to prepare for this and thought simplicity was the best option. I wanted to do something that focussed on Wiley's performance without any narrative. I had the feeling that any sort of story would be lost in the filthy bass. "In typical style Wiley showed up extremely late but we got some time and covered as much as we could. It was great to work with him... and I thank the lord he showed up.<br/> "Special thanks again to US3 productions for housing the project and Mr Dave Miller who did a great job keeping up with Yas, the craziest dancer I've ever met. Also Andrew Rider who did an amazing job at putting it all together."
