American-Moroccan hip hop artist French Montana, Fifth Harmony’s Dinah Jane, and Daddy Yankee are featured in the new music video “Boom Boom” by Moroccan-Swedish producer RedOne. The reggaeton singer shared stunning photos from the set of the production, which was filmed in the Sahara desert.
The music video opens with a colorful street party in Morocco and moves at a fast clip from shots of horses galloping down city streets, hot air balloons floating over epic expanses of sand populated with camels and dune buggies, and mobs of scantily clad men and women dancing at a beach.
The urban artist seems to have the Midas touch for creating mega hit collaborations. His most recent chart topper, which he co-created with fellow Puerto Rican Luis Fonsi, “Despacito,” made history as the first single to secure the top spot for 16 weeks in a row since Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s smash “One Sweet Day” in 1995.
Since its recent release, “Boom Boom” has garnered over 39 million views, prompting the singer to thank his followers for their love on social media: “Wow! I just woke up and I’m seeing the millions of visits that the video #BOOMBOOM has only hours after its release. Thanks for the support!”
Daddy Yankee recently told Music Choice that he knew “Boom Boom,” which fuses reggaeton, hip hop and house music, would have mass appeal: “I think that song has the potential to become a global anthem. It has everything. I think it’s a dope record,” he said.
