Jamie xx, Young Thug and Popcaan have unveiled the music video for their summer hit "I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times)." Taken from the UK producer's critically acclaimed debut album In Colour, the video was filmed in New York City and Jamaica as the three artists celebrate easy living and good times.
The visuals focus on Young Thug who spends his the majority of his time rapping the lyrics in an abandoned building, up on rooftops and by a "Good Times" pool with some attractive women lounging out in the water.
Jamie xx is shot at a gig possibly in New York City, stoic as always on stage, quickly selecting his next vinyl.
Popcaan appears from rooftops and a dark room in Jamaica to lay down his own vocals that help give the track the island flavor that has made it such a summer hit.
The "I Know There's Gonna Be Good Times" flying banner over New York City is featured throughout the video. For an independent artist and label, Young Turks, they really went for it with this one. As arguably the song of summer, they had to invest in a quality video.
Directed Rollo Jackson, check out the video for "I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times)" below.
The track is taken from Jamie xx's debut album In Colour. The single has had enough legs to take it through the summer, but the new video should help give it new momentum to the end of 2015. According to The Fader, Annie Mac is set to premiere the Skepta remix of "Good Times' today on BBC Radio One that has been floating around in various short snippets for a few months.
