G.Visuals Repeats As Director for So So Def’s Dondria’s Second Release, ‘Shawty Wus Up,’ featuring Johnta Austin and Diamond
G.Visuals Steps Behind the Lens for Keith Sweat’s ‘Test Drive’ featuring Joe,
Lyfe Jennings’ ‘Statistics’ and Newcomer Billy Blue’s ‘When U Hood U Good’ Videos
In March, G.Visuals kicked off the Spring with three of the most viewed and voted on music videos, Dondria's "You're the One" and both of Waka Flocka Flame's videos, "O Let's Do It," the original and the remix featuring Diddy, Rick Ross and Fabolous.
For Dondria's second single, "Shawty Wus Up," G.Visuals went the nostalgic route using a concept reminiscent to New Editions' video for "If It Isn't Love." The video, which features singer/songwriter, Johnta Austin and rapper, Diamond, casts famous choreographer and music executive, Devyne Stephens, as the strict rehearsal coach. Lyfe Jennings' "Statistics" video was shot with Lyfe’s female fans in mind. The video features female testimonies about love’s hardships, a video adaptation of Steve Harvey’s “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man,” best-selling book. “Statistics” premiered this week on Essence.com. G.Visuals also shot a controversial soon-to-be-released viral video for Lyfe, “If Tomorrow Never Comes.” In Keith Sweat's video, "Test Drive" G.Visuals chose Miami as the scenic back-drop for showcasing exotic models, both females and cars. G.Visuals was also selected to shoot the debut video, “When U Hood U Good,” for Interscope/ Konvict/ Po Boy’s new artist, Billy Blue. The video is a modern-day tribute to the famous comedy, “Friday,” with Billy Blue as Ice Cube’s character and comedian Lil Duval as Chris Tucker’s character.
The music industry put Atlanta on the map and film production solidified its place as a hub for entertainment. Now G.Visuals has positioned his production team as an all-inclusive company to showcase all of the creative elements of entertainment from TV, film, music and beyond.
