Dillon Francis features Lao Ra in infectious music video for new single, ‘White Boi’
Dillon Francis drops his “White Boi” music video featuring Colombiana vocalist, Lao Ra. In Francis’ recent hour-long interview on the Zach Sang Show, the subject of vocalist managed to come up during the conversation. It’s worth nothing that not too long ago, the strategy of placing a relatively unknown vocalist atop minimal, palatable pop-leaning sound with a catchy melody became one of the most streamed pieces of must in history on Diplo and DJ Snake dance pop hit with MØ, “Lean On.” There’s a similar appeal to Francis’ newest delivery — he’s got a hit on his hands, no doubt.
In the music video directed by Allie Avital, Lao Ra sets the tone atop plucky Spanish guitar chops as Francis graciously plays the “white boi” Lao Ra is singing about. Harmonies and claps come in, gradually building into the chipmunk-soul, pitch bent pop-style production of the track’s break. Francis’ deftly works in his harmonies on a hook that’ll have you hitting repeat. Eventually the layered vocal chops take center stage, moving Ra’s presence aside while bouncing through a minimal trap beat. The second verse is in Spanish, adding to Dillon’s already stacked WUT WUT concept album.›
