Who's ready for summer? Really, the question should be who isn't. With that in mind, we've paired some new music videos with upcoming events in Los Angeles that will get you ready for those hot, fun, carefree summer days and nights.
Sean Paul does it again, this time collaborating with popular hip-hop group Migos. Their new track titled "Body" was produced by dancehall hit-maker Don Corleon. The song brings both artists vibes together, creating the perfect summertime rhythm. The carnival themed video was filmed in Miami and directed by DAPS. The music video is preparing us in Los Angeles for di road, as Hollywood Carnival approaches, June 22nd- 25th.
