Indigo: Chris Brown drops visuals for Drake-assisted hit “No Guidance”
Inspired by their highly publicized nightclub brawl in 2012, Chris Brown and Drake have settled things once and for all in their hilarious new video for their signle, “No Guidance.”
In the 9-minute video directed by Chris Robinson, the two stars come face-to-face in a Miami club where an impromptu dance battle kicks off. Brown, who has built a reputation for being a skilled dancer, kicks off the battle with an impressive display.
The comedic side of the video then becomes more apparent as Drizzy steps up for his turn to dance. Busting out ‘The Snake,’ and struggling with some basics like crumping, Drizzy’s crew are visibly embarrased by the perforamnce and quickly dispese from the scene. Drake then admits that Breezy is the better dancer, and the beef is officially squashed.
The video features cameos by Drake’s right-hand man Chubbs, Tory Lanez, and aspiring young talent, King Aguila.
“No Guidance” was produced by Noah “40” Shebib, and American producers Vinylz, J-Louis, and Teddy Walton. The song appears on Brown’s latest and ninth studio project, Indigo, a double album that became Brown’s third US number-one.
In Canada, the album peaked at No. 2 on Billboard’s Canadian Albums Chart. The single is currently sitting in the No. 10 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, up a couple of spots from the previous week. In total, the song has been on the chart for six straight weeks, peaking at No. 9.
Indigo has several other Canadian contributors besides Drake and 40. Justin Bieber is featured with INK on the Sheldon Ferguson-produced “Don’t Check On Me” (Disc 1), South African born Canadian-American record producer J.R. Rotem produced the Nicki Minaj and G-Eazy-assisted “Wobble Up” (on Disc 1) and “Throw It Back” (on Disc 2), Boi-1da produced the Lil Wayne and Joyner Lucas-assisted “Need a Stack” (on Disc 1), Canadian-born Scott Storch produced or co-produced a handful of tracks including the album’s title song “Indigo” (on Disc 1), the Juvenile and Juicy J-assisted “Emerald / Burgundy” (on Disc 1), and the Tank-assisted “Early 2K” (on Disc 2). Tory Lanez appears on the Rich Skillz-produced “Lurkin” (on Disc 2), and Zalezy of Toronto’s The Maven Boys produced “Juice” (on Disc 2).
