Let me step away from hip hop for a second and share the beautiful voice of Lianne La Havas. Her latest video, which has literally put me in a better mood by watching and listening, is best describe below. The older gentleman in the video is LA legend Reggae Pops.
Reggae Pops is an LA legend. An ageless wonder who parties harder, dances smoother and woos faster than any man half his age. After one look at Lianne, it didn’t take much convincing to sign him up to be Lianne’s date for the day.
What you don’t see in the video is the serendipitous set of circumstances that led to its creation.
Reggae Pops showed up to the abandoned zoo expecting just to meet and maybe dance with Lianne, but the second she laid eyes on him, she screamed “REGGAE POPS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?!”
Turns out they’d met the previous weekend at the Do-Over and he’d stolen her heart.
One thing led to another, schedules were worked out and the “Age” video you see was born the very next morning.
