DJ Khaled’s new single, Take It To The Head, was a blockbuster of a song, so it only seems right that the music video should match epically. The single features musical heavyweights like Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and Rick Ross and the video had to be just as theatrical to keep up with the talent! The video showcases Brown singing in a cage, Nicki Minaj singing on a stage and for some reason the entire location was being drenched with waves of water. According to director Colin Tilley, the video was supposed to be a recreation of an earthquake a la the 1974 action film (titled “Earthquake,” naturally).
The music video also had cameos by Drake, Birdman, and Busta Rhymes, just to ensure that the star power was through the roof for this one. The video premiered on May 20 to much fanfare but to be honest, with so many musical icons, one couldn’t really expect anything less.
