One of our picks for this springs’s strongest creative prospects and best young, up-and-coming recording artists, Dave is continuing his uniquely-fast rise by revisiting his popular collaborative single with Burna Boy,” Location.” Specifically, the U.K. rapper is deciding to give “Location” its own visual, looking bakc to a March 2019 tweet for his primary inspiration and the video’s concept. The initial audio version of “Location” was included as one of the highlights of his long-awaited debut studio album Psychodrama; for its visual companion, Dave himself and director Kaylum decided to bring the song to life.

“Picture the scenes. You’re drunk in Ibiza. It’s merky festival and you’ve had a couple cocktails, Hus is free, location is playing, Girls are smiling at you,” Dave tweeted to his followers on March 29 of this year. “What a 2019.”

With the above tweet as his guiding light, Dave and company head to Ibiza to celebrate their successes at Merky Festival. Thanks to the star-studded roster of Merky Festival performers, Stormzy — the festival’s primary organizer — Jorja Smith, Krept & Konan, professional soccer player Jadon Sancho and J Hus. Sounds like Dave and Burna Boy have plenty of talented friends in high places.

You can take a look at Dave and Burna Boy’s new music video for “Location” above.
