Rob Ulitski - 30th Sept 2019

Liam Payne goes gaming with featured artist A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, in Nathan R. Smith's video for Stack It Up.

A flurry of neon setups depict Liam and ABWDH playing a selection of games in a studio concept. Full of retro arcade style art direction and a nod to the dominating film/VHS aesthetic, the video is contemporary, fast-paced and doesn't take itself too seriously. 

The two artists give a great performance, and the addition of some VFX courtesy of Ikki Dhesi helps give the video a unique edge. It's sure to resonate with the fanbase Liam has been building tirelessly since the start of his solo career.
