The video pairs Youssef with leading man Lamman Rucker from Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns TV series and Why Did I Get Married films. Rucker grew up in Washington and is Youssef’s fellow Duke Ellington School of the Arts alum.
Brian Kyle Atkins, who directed Youssef’s “I Got a Man” video, returns to blend the vibrant colors and culture found in Brazil with Youssef’s playful, flirty lyrics with the catchy chorus “Take me to a place I’ve never been.”
The storyline finds Youssef and her love interest trying to get away from the day-to-day to rekindle that romantic spark. Check out the video to see if it has you wanting to pack up to head South.
