In his latest music video, Calvin Harrisexplores the dirty side of Los Angeles via a surrogate: the devil.
Hot on the heels of the video for his smash hit with Florence Welch, “Sweet Nothing,” which delved into the dark side of strip clubs, Harris’s new one features British hip hop artist Tinie Tempah and one petulant horned demon who spews crackpot philosophies on L.A.’s Sunset Strip and masquerades as the devil himself.
The video, rife with explicit content, depicts a world full of sin: drug use, gang violence, booty popping, voodoo, female nudity and drinking. As Tempah raps:
“If you ain’t drunk then you’re in the wrong club/Don’t feel sexy, you’re on the wrong beat.”
