The undeniable song of the summer that is Jamie xx‘s stellar I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times) has finally received some official video treatment, and the results are about as packed full of the good vibes that you would expect. Filmed in both New York and Jamaica, the clip also features guest vocalists Young Thug and Popcaan, and – not that it needed it – will more than likely see a further boost in the track’s huge popularity.
Starting off with a huge yellow plane flying an enormous rainbow banner bearing the track title (which actually happened IRL), the clip sees Jamie doing his thing in the club and Popcaan chilling atop a building, but interestingly features a LOT of Young Thug. From sitting on a floral arrangement of the words “Good Times” (which he later sets fire to) to dancing in a dingy looking driveway, it’s definitely the Thug show in this clip. However, considering he delivers most of the liberating and feel-good lyrics, we don’t mind at all. It’s fun, bright and just what you would expect for one of the best songs of this year.
