Ayah Marar 'Beg Borrow Steal' by Dani Deville

David Knight - 15th Oct 2013

Fresh from her guest slot on Calvin Harris's Thinking About You, Ayah Marar reunites with Dani Deville on the video for Beg Borrow Steal, performing the song on a rooftop in LA while we glimpse the lives of some of the city's residents reaching crisis-point.

But when these random events threaten to lead to misery and chaos, things come together in a surprising and satisfying way.

Dani Deville: "I've been lucky enough to collaborate with Ayah on a few projects now, and even luckier to have formed a close relationship with her and her team. Ayah is just coming off the back off a huge track with Calvin Harris, so we knew we had the opportunity to shift up a gear.

"This film was really born out of everyone from Ayah, to her manager, to the label putting their full trust in me and allowing me the freedom to create and deliver everything that was in my head. As a director, when you have that trust, the limits really only come from yourself... and of course shooting in California with a great crew doesn't hurt either."
