Perform and Done, the smooth, straight talking, reggae/dancehall single from Morgan
The music video for Perform and Done is a modern day Cinderella story which borrows its sub plot from the quintessential dancehall movie, Dancehall Queen, and features a street vendor who transforms herself into a dancer to enter and subsequently win a dance contest. Filmed on location at the popular Mojito Mondays event in Kingston, Jamaica, the storyline undoubtedly captures the essence of the lead single, which was produced by renowned BBC One/BBC 1Xtra's Seani B and Don Chandler,
In reference to the song and the music video, Billboard.com noted: “The romantic song blends roots reggae with some more contemporary dancehall influences, taking the traditionally mellow genre onto the dance floor. Appropriately, the video features an underdog triumphant in a Kingston dance contest.”
Quite pleased with the work of director William Richards and the entire Image Development Studios team, Morgan Heritage states, “Perform And Done is the music video that pushes the envelope for Morgan Heritage lyrically and visually. Krystia Rhodes and her team wrote a fantastic treatment to highlight this creativity and they executed their vision perfectly. The goal is to captivate a whole new audience that would not typically watch a Morgan Heritage video. Our hope is that our existing and new fans appreciate our artistic expression.”
