Sean Garrett, Rick Ross Go ‘In Da Box’ — Video Premiere
Sean Garrett is smashing on the radio, but this time the action is a bit different from hearing one of his tracks pump loudly from speakers.
Formerly signed to Interscope and now a Columbia Records artist, Sean — noted as “the Pen” for his acclaimed songwriting talents with Usher‘s ‘Yeah,’ Beyonce‘s ‘Upgrade U,’ Ciara‘s ‘Goodies’ and Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Massive Attack,’ among others — is stepping in front of the spotlight with the visuals for his latest work, ‘In Da Box.’
The crooner, who mixes rhymes into his repertoire, tapped Rick Ross and director Colin Tilley to assist him for the video, which features a plethora of women gyrating about. “When Colin and I discussed this video concept for ‘In Da Box,’ we wanted to bring the fans something exciting, big, different and sexy,” Sean tells the BoomBox. “All the locations are real, no green screen. And even though its a club banger, we wanted to step outside the club and still make you feel the bounce and energy of this monster record.”
“Just got to Miami, touched down from the Grammys/ First stop King of Diamonds, hope them b—– ready/ And I pulled up with that no top, gave ‘em all a headache/ Told her I need that 1738 and I need that in a hurry,” Sean rhymes inside a dark factory decorated with burning barrels.
Ricky Rozay joins the singer-songwriter on the song, but gets his own room surrounded by greenery and barely covered ladies. “I’m accustomed to custom, cussin’ at customs/ Treat my whips like my sneakers, once I scuff ‘em it’s nothin’/ I get money in bundles, hustle for coupes in the summer/ I’m making her wet so she making a puddle.”
Sean Garrett is currently crafting his sophomore album, to be released on Columbia Records.
