Joy Crookes 'Don't Let Me Down' by Leonn Ward
Joy Crookes returns with a Hindu-inspired video from Leonn Ward, where the London singer is augmented by the waving, and sheltering arms of her dancers.
Following up from her acclaimed 2017 Influence EP, Don’t Let Me Down is a soulful ode to the breakdown of a relationship, and Ward has drawn upon Crookes’ Indian heritage to create a strong visual metaphor for the message in the song.
Speaking to i-D, the singer said, “the video was inspired by the Hindu goddess Lakshmi… the song itself came from a vulnerable place, and for me, these arms show my strength in the situation and how I overcame it.”

Not too many hip hop videos take a half time break to interview the rapper's mum, but that's what you get in Leonn Ward's video for Kareem Kalokoh and his instantly catchy track, Rambo.
After the Hindu-inspired Don’t Let Me Down, Leonn Ward once again teams up with rising UK singer Joy Crookes.
Leonn Ward directs this anthemic pastoral, a hymn to self-acceptance and the healing power of the countryside. It’s a rapturous new beginning for Michael Kiwanuka.
Working together for a fourth time, Louis Tomlinson and director Charlie Lightening head to Morroco for Walls, the title track of the artist's debut album.
