Dillon Francis recruits The Kid Mero and Pioladitingancia for new ‘Ven’ music video [Watch]
The rollout of Dillon Francis‘ impending mombahton LP has officially begun. January brought “Ven,” which found Francis joining with Puerto Rican songwriter Arcangel and Dominican rapper Quimico Ultra Mega for the record’s lead single. Now the “I.D.G.A.F.O.S.” producer has dropped off the track’s accompanying music video, taking us to the streets of NYC for the new feature. The “Ven” video includes performances from Francis’ Latin co-stars as they deliver slick Spanish bars over a dripping, syrupy moombah beat. However, unlike the majority of additions to Francis’ video catalog, the “We The Funk” producer takes a backseat this time, letting Quimico and Arcangel really own the feature’s spotlight.
Rapping in front of the city’s urban backdrops, accented by doodled animations, the Michael Garcia-directed video even comes complete with a few mentionable cameos from The Kid Mero and viral sensation Pioladitingancia — arguably two of the city’s biggest proponents of Dominican New Yorker culture. This is actually Mero’s second project with Francis, as some might remember him as Dillon’s broccoli nemesis in 2014’s “Exit Through The Donut Shop.” Man, how far we’ve all come.
Since its release, “Ven” just seems to get better with repeated listens and the visuals accurately complement the lead single’s swaggering aesthetic. Now with the release of his new video, the excitement for Dillon Francis’ hotly anticipated moombahton album is officially reaching an all time high.
