Jamie xx, a member of the pop band xx, has finally released a visual to his lead single “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)”. The track comes from his latest album In Colour, which peaked at No. 3 on the United Kingdom’s album charts.
Within the Rollo Jackson-directed clip, we see a rhythmic Jamie team up with the eclectic Young Thug to actually have a good time as they relax on the skyscraping balcony. The Jamaican artist Popcaan also makes a few cameos in the video.
The soulful track is constructed from Jamie xx’s bass-filled melody and prominent sample of vocal group ‘The Persuasions’ “Good Times”. Thugger interjects throughout his verse how he’s going to romance and caress his woman:
[quote_box_center]”I told lil’ mama I don’t bite but my teeth do/
I wanna control you like voodoo/
I’m steady screaming free Unfunk and DuLu/
Every time I have a good time you do too (Good time, hey)”[/quote_box_center]
The video comes ahead of a “Good Times” remix featuring rapper Skepta, which was suppose to air on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show today, the Fader reports.
