Doug Bernardt's video for Masego is a lovely performance piece, featuring the Jamaican-American musician with a companion - the Mystery Lady of the song's title - with the song inspiring her and two other women to reveal their remarkable command of Latin dance styles.

Characteristically for the Brazilian director's work, it is beautifully photographed by DoP Andres Arochi, characterised by sweeping moving shots as Masego performs in a courtyard, and the women come from interiors to dance in the sunshine.

And the location is a key part of the chemistry of the video, with Bernardt also making this a celebration of the place where it was filmed - Mexico City.

"I've always been a big fan of Masego and it’s a pleasure to be releasing this first collaboration with him," says the director. "I'm happy we kept a true and representative Latin atmosphere in the video - our choices of locations and casting were always mindful in order to portray Mexico City with its true character."
