Hardwell is riding high off the success of his latest single “Thinking About You”, his collaborative effort with British Pop Singer Jay Sean. While the track continues to gain momentum around the globe, the Dutch heavyweight has released the official video for his latest offering, which was dropped on October 13th. The song proved one of the standout offerings from Hardwell’s production catalogue in 2016, as he teamed up with Jay Sean for the anthemic single, plotting the Brit’s catchy topline over a mighty synth progression.
“Thinking About You” marked Hardwell’s eight collaboration in 2016. The melodic, whimsical essence of the song starkly contrasts its lyrical theme, which evokes a “take no prisoners” mentality. The buoyant melodies and youthful vocals may seem to be a classic combination, but the result is summarily successful.
The video primarily stars Jay Sean, the vocalist on the single, placing the youthful songster in a colorful, entertaining roller skating rink. The rink serves as a dance floor, cinematographic elements appear throughout the whole song, and two dancers on roller skates fill the hall in a scene that is as appealing and moving as the track itself. Ultimately, the video completes the feel-good aesthetic first evoked in the original, offering a simple, yet fitting visual counterpart to the larger-than-life production.
