QUOTE FROM RICO:
“This video is one of my favorites because it shows a lighter side of me. I was paying homage to the sound that I grew up admiring from Puff and Pharrell. Back when people danced in clubs and didn’t just stand on couches and take pictures. It was also consistent to the theme of my album. Pay attention to the ending and see how it all ties in. #TTLO”
