Mr Play Links Up With Demarco & Adekunle Gold For ‘You Decide’ Music Video

After teasing the visuals for weeks, and on the back of the single receiving strong radio and club support across the UK, Africa and the Caribbean, award-winning British DJ and fast-rising artist-producer MR PLAY is excited to unveil the brand new music video for his massive debut single ‘You Decide’ featuring Jamaican dancehall star Demarco and Nigerian singing sensation Adekunle Gold, which is taken from his forthcoming debut project to be released in 2019.

Filmed on location in Atlanta by Des Gray of Foreign Made Films, who has previous worked with the likes of Future, 21 Savage, Gucci Mane, Rick Ross and Young Thug, among others, the music video for ‘You Decide’ is a sexy and captivating visual offering, which brings the infectious dancehall-tinged jam and club-ready dancefloor filler further to life, and captures all three artists – Mr Play, Demarco and Adekunle Gold – in their performance and showmanship element.

The track itself, which was produced by Mr Play and Demarco (Vybz Kartel, Sean Paul, Konshens, Busta Rhymes) and is led by glorious vocal performances from Demarco and Adekunle Gold, marks the exciting transition for Mr Play, one of the UK’s biggest DJs and nightlife connoisseurs, from behind the decks to the artist forefront, and is only the first of many exciting cross-genre and cross-culture collaborations that the revered London-based DJ has been putting together, to be unveiled next year.

Already a nationwide treasure in the UK, where he is revered as one of the country’s leading DJs, hosts and promoters, having worked with everyone from Giggs to Fekky to Wiz Khalifa, with several special guest DJ performances on BBC 1Xtra and Capital Xtra, among others, Mr Play is also a recognized name globally, shutting down parties around the world, with teeming fans across Europe, America, UAE and the Caribbean, and partnerships with the likes of Red Bull, Ciroc and House Of Marley.

With a career that has spanned over a decade, and a resume that includes being one of the pioneers of the UK Funky House movement in the late 2000s, Mr Play has continued to push the culture forward over the years. In 2018, the Brixton native is taking centre stage as an artist-producer in his own right, first with the brand new single ‘You Decide’, which is already setting clubs ablaze up and down the country, followed by his second single early next year, and his highly anticipated debut project coming right after.
