Teddy Franchize – City Lights [Video]

Toronto, ONTeddy Franchize recently launched some new visuals for his track entitled. “City Lights.” Those would be Toronto’s city lights, by the way. Teddy is repping the T-Dot and hitting home his whole, “dream big” and try to “live bigger” motto. He’s turning up and cranking out over a banger-of-a-beat. The video was directed by Adrian Patterson.

And keep it locked. Because Teddy is gearing up to launch his forthcoming Until Next Time EP later on this year. So until next time (that was funny, right?) check out the video below.

Also of note: this track also gives us a brief glimpse into the less-aggressive part of Teddy. If you’re watching just after the two-minute mark on the video, Teddy drops some line about his younger self wanting to do the deed with Halle Berry (“The younger me wanted to f*ck Halle Berry/ Now the older me is saying f*ck Halle Berry”). But after Teddy drops that first line (at 2:06 in the video), he giggles. Yes, the dude giggles. Despite the turned-up, gnarly nature of this joint, Teddy temporarily loses his ish. Because reminiscing about wanting to do naughty things with Halle Berry is that overpowering. The emotions are real.
