Afrojack showcases new direction on collaboration with Fais
Afrojack produced the debut single “Hey” for his childhood friend Fais, and it’s now received the video treatment. Starring real-life couple Alexis Ren and Jay Alvarrez, the sunny video fits the tropical vibes that have taken the world by storm and that the Dutch producer has been moving towards for some time.
The video features Fais singing at an exotic pool and on the beach before reaching its climax at an Afrojack show. It also nominally contains a plot, with an unnamed man — suspiciously wearing a full suit at a pool — somehow ignoring Ren before she is taken away by a doting Alvarez. The timing of this release is calculated, as the warmth of both the track and video should lend it to longevity and could carry it from the coming spring into a hit for this summer.
