Nicki Minaj, Jason Derulo & Willy William Star In David Guetta’s “Goodbye” Video
David Guetta, Nicki Minaj, Jason Derulo and Willy William bring the drama in the video for their collaborative single, “Goodbye.” The infectious anthem landed on the French producer’s aptly titled seventh studio album, 7, earlier this year. Boasting an insanely catchy chorus and a star-studded lineup, it fit right in on the tracklist, which also featured collaborations with the likes of Bebe Rexha, Anne-Marie and Sia (twice). Since being unveiled as a buzz track in late August, it has amassed more than 68 million streams on Spotify and has gone Top 40 in several markets across the globe. However, the anthem has missed out on the Billboard Hot 100 entirely. That will hopefully change today (October 22) with the release of a supporting visual.
Taking place in London, it delivers an engaging romantic plot as well as some vibrant performance footage. In it, Jason and his relationship take center stage. Sleeping beside a partner, the “Swalla” crooner reluctantly wakes up for an early-morning call time on a video shoot and in the recording studio. Despite starting his day at 3 AM, he is running late for a dinner date with his beloved later that night. As a result, their relationship seems a little strained; however, the chicly dressed star is able to make amends during a performance in a later scene. Nicki, meanwhile, wears a diamond-encrusted mask in several scenes and dons a nostalgia-inducing pink wig in others. Serving fierce looks and dripping with attitude, the Queen rapper spices up the visual. As does Willy, who delivers his verse as confetti rains down around him and a crew of dancers.
Colorful and action-packed, the video definitely leaves a lasting impression. Hopefully it will give the banger a push up the charts in the coming weeks. Give the quartet’s release a view up top and let us know what you think!
