After throwing some praise twoards Young Thug, Wyclef Jean connected with the Atlanta eccentric for a new single dubbed “I Swear.” Today, we’re being treated to the song’s official visual. The vignette for “I Swear” comes to us courtesy of director Kid Art and features an appearance from Thugger’s fiancé Jerrika Karlae. Explaining his time with Wyclef Jean for the video shoot, Young Thug tells Billboard:
“My experience on the “I Swear” video was crazy with sandstorm and the ledge, and Wyclef teaching me how to play guitar. The whole thing was very, very good for my first time — it was the best time of my life.”
Breaking down his feelings toward Thugger and his choice to work with him for the new joint single, Wyclef Jean added:
“I understood how talented this young man is and I felt ‘I Swear’ would be a great way for us to do something different, something fresh and new. We mixed 1997 with 2017. I call it ‘over turn’ — that’s when the ‘turn up’ is on overdrive.”
