New Orleans native PJ Morton has built his international profile as one of the members of Maroon 5. However, with his latest video, "I Need Your Love," he proves that he's still a 504 boy through and through. The clip, filmed in the Crescent City, features a guest appearance by local rapper 5th Ward Weebie. While the video has a classic vibe, it's strictly NOLA as PJ and some of his most fashionable friends dance in the street. Skip, one of Big Freedia's dancers, even pops in to show off his footwork. 5th Ward Weebie's verse keeps the party going only the way New Orleanians can in this lighthearted and fun video. Director Cinemadona effortlessly captures the vibe of the city in a way that feels both naturally N'awlins and nostalgic. Most recently, she has been garnering international acclaim after serving as the cinematographer for Beyoncé's Lemonade visual album.
"Need Your Love" is the latest release from Morton's Bounce & Soul, Volume 1 mixtape, which he dropped back in March. The project finds him paying homage to the bounce music he grew up on and also marked his physical return to his New Orleans roots after relocating back from California. Feast your eyes on this treat and see if you can resist the urge to twerk a lil' something once "dat beat" drops.
