Rob Ulitski - 23rd Dec 2019

Stefflon Don, Geko, Dappy and Deno run into trouble with the law in Labi Odebunmi's video for Link Up. 

A high energy, cinematic performance setup for each artist is contrasted with an interlinking narrative, depicting each of the artists being arrested and taken away from their loved ones. Inside the prison, they are all desperate to link up and reconnect, but the stubborn and brash officers are having none of it. 

Sampling the legendary R'n'B hit Always on Time by Ashanti & Ja Rule, the bouncy track is a collaboration between some of the biggest names in the genre, and the video reflects this with high production values and a very well executed concept.
